This site talks a lot of programming, but I'm not always in front of my computer !

I pass very pleasant time playing guitar.

My first cool guitar was Cort X-2 guitar. The design of this guitar is really amazing, and metallic red produce overall cool reflection.
The pickups aren't the best, but we can't ask better to such cheap guitar.

Later, I've trade it with this cool Ibanez SA-160 guitar.
Here are some pics just after a clean-up and a fresh set of strings.

I've tried also some guitar with floyd-rose, but I don't like this kind of bridges. It's too much a pain (and a loose of time) to tune the guitar after a string change.

All those guitar have now found new owners, and I now own myself a Fender Stratocaster (a Strat+ model).
It's a 20 year old guitar, so I'm not afraid to damage it or to put my fingers in the electronics ;)

Here are some pictures of the guitar with the old electronic :

Fander Strat+ before

I've changed the pickups (with a set of Fender SCN) and replace all the electronic.
The pickguard has been replaced (old one was damaged), and the guitar finally now looks like :

Fender Strat+ after with SCN pickups

I've installed a fresh new set of strings, and plug the guitar in my amp (Vox AC4TV). With luck, everything was fonctional ;)
There's still the selector button missing, it will be installed when my guitar shop will receive it !
