Banning Guitars Burnt Orange "Boosty Strat" - Friday Strat # 353



 October 24, 2014
Jason Banning of Banning Guitars, Lodi, CA builds a variety of iconic shaped electrics that are both well configured & affordably price pointed. 

Currently listed at Banning's Reverb.com Shop, our Friday spotlight "Boosty Strat" includes some strong features. Besides the lively Burnt Orange Sparkle finish on both body and headstock face, specs include 10" radius medium "C" neck with medium-jumbo frets, alder body, vintage-style 6 screw trem and Sperzel locking tuners. The finish is thin-skin nitro and lightly aged. Click the above photos for close-ups.

The boost circuit is by Matthews Effects, and pickups are by McNelly Guitars. Not familiar with these names? Just Google them, okay.;)))

See demo video at the listing page. Overall, nice looking package with mucho bang for the buck.

That's right, Burnt Orange Sparkle, folks. I would have named it "Ayahuasca Root Beer", but that's just me. You can Google ayahuasca too.

Almost November, and time to start coming up with those nifty Christmas stocking stuffers. Here's some ideas, kids!

Dig how the Monterey set even includes tiny pack of matches and Ronsonol lighter fluid can. The pedals are accurate too, check the Fuzz Face! McFarlane Toys does other rock icons as well.

There's some real dumbass stuff out there too, but these are pretty cool.
