happy for having found this forum. I'm just one of the lucky owners of this beatiful instrument, and I would like to share with you some doubt that, recently, is making me feel unsatisfied with this axe.
Let me, at first, introduce the guitar: it's a HM Strat made in Japan '89, cherry red coloured, rosewood fretboard, Kahler Spyder with original stuff, HSS configuration with a bridge pickup custom handmade by Marco Pontillo. the serial number starts with H9 (should someone be curious to see it i can provide pictures!)
Now, the question: this guitar is great for sound and comfort, but has a very terrific sustain! I'm using 0,10-52 strings but notes really play for short time if compared with any standard stratocaster/telecaster.
Since my personal taste in guitar playing is changing, thus feeling less interested in shredding and more in love with sound and groove, i'm starting to feel really unhappy. Do someone knows how to improve the instrument to get a wonderful sustain?
Thanks a lot! You can also contact me on my private email gdivella*AT*gmail*DOT*com
