#2) I have many of the Pins in that display(and a few of the actual Guitars to go with them)
Never been a Fender Stratocaster fan, (play Gibsons mostly with a Carvin, a BC Rich, and one or two others thrown in!)
But I just bought my first 2 Fenders in about 35 years last week(a Carbonita series Semi-Hollow Telecaster with twin Mini Humbuckers and a "California" series Amplified Acoustic/Electric!) for a project i'm helping a Semi-Famous Jazz Rocker pal of mine with....
One day I'd like to PM you if a few questions if you don't mind....
Only Been to the "Foggy" city area once(was at Lewis once for about 10 mins. before it became a "Joint" Base....)
Shoot with the questions any time.
I like a lot of blues and blues based / southern rock. I like a good Les Paul, but I'm just now learning to play guitar. The Strat is comfy, a touch lighter than a LP and I can get most of the tones I want for now. When I want more growl I can pick up my daughters Epiphone Les Paul copy. I was kind of torn between the Strat and a Telecaster, since both felt nice, but with images and sounds of Stevie Ray Vaughn, Eric Clapton, Buddy Guy, Rory Gallagher, and Jimi Hendrix bouncing around in my head I went with the Strat. Nice thing about a Strat is that they can be hot rodded about any way you want.
I figure eventually I will get myself either a Gibson Les Paul or SG, and a Tele to round out the tone possibilities. Next guitar I get will be an acoustic, Trying to decide between a Yamaha AC3, Breedlove, Seagull or save up for a good long while to get a Taylor or Martin. All have good feeling necks to me, and I like the idea of solid wood tops and backs. can live with some laminate in the sides due to the weather changes around here.
