Making your own guitar. Plan to give this a crack one day.
Build Your Own Electric Guitar!
Some nice Fernandes Strats on eBay, particularly like the red one.

School's music department has a red fernandes strat EXACTLY like that one. Easily one of the best they've got. Four hundred... If I had a little more disposable income (read: A JOB) I'd defo look to grab one, useful having a decent axe sitting around, even as a bassist...

Wow. Lenny Kravitz-meets-Tom Morello-meets-Joes Satriani.
Nice! New pups a must surely?
Don't think much of stock squire pups?
Not so much that as I'd have thought for the style of music you play, actives would be a must. In my view, in a bass, anything other than 70's style James Brown skank would demand actives.

Sexy and I got it freaking cheap too. Gold.
I know I must seem like a Fernandes nut these days but this one is a good 'un I reckon.

Fine with passives tbh, playing bass in a two gat noisy rock band means that any extra sparkle or definition brought by actives would just get lost in the mix, not sure what the gain would be. Prefer to keep it simple, at least until I've got cash to experiment a little.
Hah, nice. How big is your collection now?

All I need (for now) is a Les Paul or 335-Style guitar. In terms of Japanese guitars, the good ones are far harder to find.
Experimenting with pedal order at the moment, putting the compression at the end of the chain rather than at the beginning is proving to be useful for all except the overdrive pedal. Annoying. Think I need a new OD anyway, the Jekyll and Hyde just isn't cutting it any more.
Oh FFS, **** you Andy Timmons.

The opening riff is ridiculous, most guys I've seen try to play stuff like that are only able to do it with a slap-back delay. Timmons is playing Every. Damn. Note.

It's guys like that which make me think I chose the wrong instrument.
