Stratocaster vintage Fender guitars from mid-1959have a celluloid "mint green" three layer pickguardwhich is white/black/white. Sometimes the pickguardof this vintage Fender is called a "nitro" pickguard.The celluloid pickguard was first introduced to theStratocaster guitar around July 1959. Before that,rosewood fingerboard vintage Stratocasters weremade with a single white pickguard with 9 or 10screws.
During the same time period in 1959 some vintageFender Stratocaster guitars were made with mapleneck and a 8 screw three layer celluloid pickguard.In order to replace the thicker and much smallershield previously used on guitars single layerpickguards, a thin aluminum shield the size of thepickguard was installed underneath the three layerpickguard.
Fender used a very photo-reactive dye in their sunburstfinish of the vintage Stratocaster guitar. This causedmany 1959 Strats to fade from 3-color sunburst toa 2-color. The photo-reactive nature of the red on theStrat Fender guitar caused fading from ultra-violet light. The fading is noticeable up close,from a distance it is difficult to recognize.

The Post-rock Revolution (Explosions in the sky)
A lot has been said about the 'post-rock' revolution as of late. The rise of instrumental bands such as Explosions in the sky, Godspeed you! black emperor, Maserati, and The Mercury Program has raised questions about the direction that music is traveling. More and more people are looking for something different, something fresh. We are sick of the same pop songs being shoveled down our throats, we are sick of mindless rap, we are sick of mindless rock. We are sick of mindless music. So what happens when you remove the vocal aspect of music? It becomes exceedingly difficult to fall into the 'mindless' category; the instrumental soundscapes allow your mind to apply its own story to the music. It's remarkable what happens when you let the listener dictate the theme of the music.

This article is designed to help anyone to enjoy karaoke and improve their singing performance whether it be as a "virgin" karaoke singer or as someone starting out on a singing career. It contains tips designed to help old hands and newbies alike achieve a better karaoke singing style. The best piece of advice is to bear in mind that one of the whole idea behind karaoke is that it doesn't matter how good(or bad) your singing is - you are singing for your own enjoyment. The people in the karaoke bar are there usually because they enjoy karaoke too, so it is not expected that you perform like the next American/Pop Idol. In fact some of the most boring karaoke nights I have been to have been spent watching a succession of pretty decent singers. If I wanted that I would go and see a show.
