About Me

I am a 63 year old goat from Texas . I love playing guitar and, guitars just in and of themselfs.

I own a 1985 MIJ Fender Contemporary ssh Strat  metalic green with a System 3 trem system and am currently awaiting delivery of a 1985 MIJ Fender Contemporary ssh tele with a system 1 trem system.. I hope the tele is in as good condition as the strat. However, finding the proper trem arm for a  system 3  is like actually finding a physical pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. I have tried several sustitutes including a floyd rose arm and currently have a whammy world arm that claimed to be a system 3 arm but isn't. At least it fits in the hole but works with  way too much loose play. I like your site and the info you have about MIJ 1980s Fender products.

Joined because I enjoy papatoms site and info so much. A newbie, only a year and a half learning guitar. Sold a 86 contempary that was missing parts. Couldnt get that axe off my mind, loved the 12" radius and the tone. Finnaly found one with all original parts, and had to have. No regrets--its my favorite--looks, sounds, and feels wonderful. Thanks papatom for all youve done with this site, and letting folks know of this great guitar.

About Me

My wife & I gave our kids music lessons on classical violin.They are now paying us back with amazing tunes they write or cover on accoustics, electrics or strings. Papatom has helped us out with restoring an MIJ Strat bridge and facilitating another 30 year old MIJ Strat in "new" condition. Winterpeg is a musician's town. There are tons of great Manitoba musicians and bands in the shadows of the Guess Who, Niel Young, BTO...Scott Nolan, Brandy Zdan. We are "taking care of business" and "rocking in the free world". My dream is to be the bass player in the band...i better get learning & practicing.

Started playing at 13, then the wonderful world or cars, girls and a career got in the way! Didn't really play too much until the mid 90's and it's been a blast ever since.
