I have owned dozens of guitars since I started years ago. In the beginning mostly Gibson Les Paul's and SGs. I wanted a guitar back then that I could play everything from funk, rock, and Jazz, being working musicians, to anything in between. And then I found the first Strat and the rest is history for me. The American Stratocaster became my only go-to guitar whenever I had a gig.
Just recently bought this American maple Strat from you. It is true to the core and more. Not made for metal but with the right amps, pedals, and settings, you could play anything...this one in particular plays as well and more than any guitar I have owned or played. It is of course an icon in the history of the musical world. And it is still available for anyone to play. Thanks to Fender and Sweetwater I'll be happy 'til I'm done.
