Here you go if you want one. There are some others that are just as lovely.
Love the Picnic at Hanging Rock one.

A Roomba. Haven't set it up yet, though. The Missus made me do it.

Yeah I bought support staff for the studio with the black Friday deals, a DOD ringmodulator pedal, the Earthquaker Spatial Delivery and a 1970s Electro-Harmonix small stone phaser. I also found a good deal on the Motu Midi express 128. I'm sick of having so many midi thrus.

But the biggest deal is this https://www.instagram.com/p/Bb8JkY7gdJc ... tsofflight

Can vouch for Epiphone being closer to Gibson than Squier is to Fender. Epiphone is actually a really decent brand in making licensed Gibson replicas and they are 100% gig-able and studio friendly guitars, Squiers on the other hand are generally quite poor quality fender clones, but their quality has been increasing a bit with the Vintage Modified range.

I have a Squier Jazzmaster personally but it has entirely new pickups and circuitry inside and I have a new 60s style neck with white binding and block fret markers/ jumbo frets en-rute. Squiers are only good if you are willing to invest a bit of time and effort into modifying them to sound and feel like their fender counterparts but on a much lower budget.

Yeah if the body is built well you can really trick out a guitar nicely with the electronics and get a great guitar out of budget guitar.

Jesus, that is a lovely guitar in that pic. Is that an ES-335?

Nice Rhodes organ too, can't get enough of their fairly unique sound whenever I hear it.

It’s actually a Samick RL4, it’s a good guitar and beautiful to look at, it could just use some electronics and pup upgrades.

Could have fooled me, that's a real higher-end Gibson looking guitar tbh.

Looks like the new neck I ordered comes with jumbo frets (not a fan) but I only realised that in hindsight after purchase.
It seems a re-fretting is in order but I don't have much experience there, if anyone could shed some light on it or direct me to a decent tutorial I would be in their debt.
