Fender Stratocaster (MIM)

Ok, then Great!


I bought this guitar for my sister in 2003, for christmas.

She wanted to learn how to play.

Getting it from Guitar Works, it PLAYED amazing. But the first time I plugged it in, I was drastically disappointed by the tone. Sounded like cardboard compared to my American strat. But for the price, a great beginner guitar.

In 2009, I wanted to make some new music, and having spent all of my money trying to go to school, I asked her if I could borrow it.

This borrowing turned long term. And a funny thing had happened, it sounded decent. And after a few more years, it sounded even better. I think the wood just needed to age or something.

This guitar helped me make music for years, as no matter how difficult money got, I couldn’t sell it, because it wasn’t mine!

Eventually I realized that I couldn’t keep dealing with the neck on it, too small for my hands, so away it went.
