This probably isn't everyone's cup of tea.... After years of trying to avoid buying a strat I finally bit the bullet. I saw this hanging on the wall, used, in a local music store and made the mistake of giving it a go. Amazing tone and playability. The previous owner was kind enough to load it up with some Texas specials :). Anyhow, the damned thing followed me home and has been hogging all the amp time! This is my second MIJ fender. I seem to be getting lucky with the imports.
