    Well I took a trip to Long&McQuade today, thought i'd have a look around, kill some time. I ended up leaving with a new guitar....sort of.

    First off, I must say if you ever get the chance, try out a Godin Guitar. Very nice guitars, and the only reason I didn't pick up a lefty Godin, was because it had no trem of any kind. The right handed one I saw had a trem, and I think piezo or synth or something, and if that was available left handed, I would have picked that up instead. Very impressive guitars :yesway:

    Anyway, onto the guitar I did buy...

    Got myself a pretty pimp gig bag :yesway:
    [​IMG]
    And a '95 US Fender Strat with a maple board and white body. My favourite combo on a strat :yesway:
    And that's not all. It's fairly beat. Which saves me some trouble :D

    I'm out of beer, so a toast using a mini sprite will have to suffice


    There was another one there exactly like this, but like a 2000 some with a rosewood board brand new and I said to myself "Man, if it had a maple board i'd be taking it home right now." Then I saw this hanging on the wall mixed in with some gibson's. I'm very pleased with this guitar. Still need to restring it and buy a bar for it but other than that it's perfect.

    nice :shred:
    i may be geeting a strat of my own soon (see my recent -now locked- thread as to how)
    is it a high gloss or nitrocellulous finish?
    what pickups/how are they?
    what kind of profile does the neck have?

    Nice!
    Every guitarist could use a good strat.

    My favorite color combo too,
    and nice and dinged up, the way a strat should be. :yesway:


    Too bad it's backwards. :fawk:

    Great score. I just sold my last six string, and the only one I would consider buying is a Strat with maple board in either white or sunburst :yesway:

    I used to have a 50th anniversary strat..
    [​IMG]
    It was alright, it felt good to play, but the S-1 pickups weren't all that great, and the finish had some issues.

    Once I get a bar and upgrade the tuners on this new baby it'll be all set. Maybe change out these pickups for some gilmour emg's, depends on how I like these :agreed:

    Nice score on the Strat, Scott. It's just like mine except mine is Mexican and right-handed of course. :D

    Congrats! :yesway:
