Got me a new guitar!

Post by deltabluesrookie »

Got me a mim strat in a local pawn yesterday. Only four years old. mint shape.Beautiful cream color with a maple neck..which is a stick of butter. I've had some cheap squiers in the past. This is my first real fender. I am in love. I told my wife that she's been replaced. :lefty:
Can't stop thinking about her been playing non stop. Man I almost sound like I know what im doing.

Congrats!
I have an older Fender Squier series (Korea) which sounds good, I'd like to hear a comparison of your Squier with your new one...

Nice. I've always wanted to stop in one of those pawn shops and see what kind of guitars they have. Did you get a good deal? Do they let you play it prior to buying?

Amazing choice! I bought myself a MIM Strat from 2002, in 2008. Black Body, Maple Neck. She looks exactly like Blackie. :drool: I was going to buy a Blackie Strat or a Cream Strat, (White Body, Maple Neck). Like yours. I went with Blackie.

Congrats on your purchases. I myself just got a new gitfiddle, a 1996 Epiphone Sorrento (lefty), will post pics when she arrives. It's my first hollow body and first with P90 pickup's so i'm really excited to get to play with a whole new set of tones. Having to sell my Squier Strat though to pay for her cause i got caught with serious GAS and completely overpaid. Oh well, it's only money!

I wouldn't dare to do that :) First Lady might get quite upset if I did.... maybe even go on strike... :yikes:

She still feels edgy cause there's no Fender decal on her headstock (she'll never get one to)
