Hello all. I don't log on here much, but I thought it might be the best place to seek some advice.
I am in need of a new 'high quality' & 'sturdy' guitar peripheral. Money is not an issue with this. I play...a lot. I've burned through so many guitars/base over the years (wear out the fret buttons, strum bars start having too much play, whammy bar bends or breaks altogether). I am currently using the Hofner Bass replica and I've absolutely loved it. I love the long neck, the fret buttons are very easy for me to hammer on/off long phrases, and I like the heavier weight. But now, after a year or so, the strum bar is starting to have too much play for my liking. I'm looking for something sturdy, a peripheral that will last for me for awhile.
I've read about the Wireless Fender Wooden Stratocaster Replica, a bit pricey, but I'm willing to pay the $$$ if it will last me. Any of you that are reading this, do you own or have you played this guitar? If you've owned it for some time, has it held up?
Another thought I've had...is there any 2nd or 3rd party companies that build custom peripherals? I've not researched this, but could be interested.
Thank you for taking the time to read this and I appreciate any advice you can share. I welcome all suggestions.
Be Well - Mikarlo
