An acoustic guitar with a tremolo bar. I need one of these. I rarely play electric anymore and I miss having a trem.

The truest light at the stage of life.  A group of guitarists in one stage and time to publish the efforts of the many to the understanding of the few.  To please the crowd.

The top 3 were certainly no surprise (though I would flip 1 & 2), but the rest of the list contained some interesting choices.

Even though I've only been aware of him for a few years, Yoshiaki Manabe from Japanese alt-rock band The Pillows has already become one of my favorite guitarists. He's firmly rooted in the classics_ (Hendrix, Clapton etc.)_, but he definitely has a style all his own. Leaning much more toward the tasteful, melodic side than the fast technical side, he doesn't waste a single note which, IMO, is a real mark of greatness.

Well,  I'm doing this.

Why?  Because its become pretty clear that I have to do this.  I have to get better.  I have to get my life back.  Going to the pool, it helps.  And I need to go a few times a week because it is helping.  But I'm going to run out money to do it soon.

I am asking for support to continue to go to the pool, to start a walking regimen at home, where its safe, and hopefully over the next year build the stamina and lessen the pain.  

If you can't donate, can you share my story around?  It would be really awesome if I could start the New Year on a positive note for once.  It isn't easy asking this, but I have nothing left to lose.

Thanks.

Hi! My Name is Carrie, or Carrot as I've become affectionately referred to.  I have fibromyalgia, multi-level disc degeneration, spinal stenosis and peripheral neuropathy.  I have been unable to work for nearly 4 years and my life has become very limited.  I am in constant pain and it dictates everything I do from sleep to a social life.

Recently I found aquatic therapy after several repeated failures with traditional physical therapy.  Twice a week I go to a heated pool and am able to slowly increase the range of motion, and it doesn't hurt.  It actually feels good.  The tingling in my fingers and toes subsides and I feel more positive.

It works so much better than taking pain medication and I feel better about myself.

My doctor recommends that I use the pool as often as possible.  Daily if I can.  It is also recommended that I start a walking regimen to slowly increase my stamina above ground.  Its also about developing the habit of motion and retraining my body to respond better to motion and stop resisting it.  

The problem is that it is expensive.  I have managed to work out a reduced rate for a yearly membership at the pool that I do my aquatic therapy which would include all their locations (very convenient).  This is awesome and comparable to the YMCA but with less foot traffic. 

The other problem is that my health insurance has limited therapy allowances, so at some point I will be unable to receive aquatic physical therapy unless I pay for it myself.  If I have a yearly membership, I can at least apply my knowledge to the remainder of the year and keep moving.

Walking is another major issue.  I have an intense cold sensitivity.  In the winter I will break out into welts and get asthmatic from the air, so just walking outside is inadvisable.  Getting a treadmill really is the way to go to ensure that I am doing some dedicated walking every day.  I can schedule time to get out of the house and into the pool at least 4x a week.  I can't guarantee 7x for walking.

Therefore, my estimate would cover my year of expenses for a membership, a treadmill (nothing fancy), and gas money or pool equipment (they have these neat floating bar bells and stuff) I would require. 

I am not exaggerating when I say that these things are making my life not only better, but for the first time in a long while I feel like I might be able to get some control back.  I look forward to going to the pool each time.  I feel much more alive afterward, I walk better, I have less balance problems and less intense pain because of the warm water.  Walking is going to be hard, but I know that I need to work on this if I'm ever going to get my life back.  I just need your help to get me there...

I love Strats and can be a bit of a traditionalist, so I'm not sure how I feel about the thicker tremolo bar, but aside from that it looks and sounds great. I particularly like the finish on the one being played in the video.

In my  20's I would have loved this, but now I can't help but wonder if Jello shots really needed to be made more efficient. lol

Great video. I've been wondering what the strat-style guitar was, ever since I noticed it in the Fault Is In Our Stars video and especially the baby Martin since seeing it in the Anchor video, as I really like small acoustics. 
I've been playing guitar for 30 years as of next month and over the years I've also picked up bass, mandolin and ukulele. My electrics (which I don't really play anymore) are an Ibanez Artcore AS73, a Dean EVO XM and a Rogue Rockateer. My acoustics are a Carlo Robelli (Sam Ash store brand) 3/4 size classical, a Charvel 525D, a Yamaha GL1 guitalele and a Takamine EC-132C. I've also acquired Bass Collection fretless bass, a Fender mandolin and a few Kala ukes.
Unfortunately, I'm looking to sell all the guitars and basses except for the Rogue, the Robelli and the Yamaha (the cheapest ones, but also the ones I play the most) because I rarely play them anymore. I mainly play ukulele and bass these days (there's just something I like about 4 strings lol) and, since I only really play acoustic, the Bass Collection will be replaced with a fretless acoustic. It'll be difficult to let them go, but they've served me well over the years and hopefully they'll end up in good homes where they'll get played a lot. :)

They say the paint jobs are inspired by cars from the '60s & '70s, but they look very '80s to me. The 'Plum Crazy' Legacy looks just like something I would have played in a music store when I was just starting out about 30 years ago. lol

Amazing. One chord is all you need when you're as great as these guys.

Is it just me or is this whole thing beginning to reek of a massive publicity stunt? I fully expect it to be available for rent, most likely on a Sony-owned site, by the end of January
