I actually got this a couple weeks ago, but you know me; it's safe to make sure I'm actually keeping it before doing a NGD these days!
I have two more Cruisers coming in for the neck and middle, but the fuckers are on back order until early May.
The reason I got a Strat is primarily because of needing something with room for this:
But I'm actually finding I really, really love playing a Strat. It's just such a different beast than everything else I have, both in terms of sound as well as feel, and that makes it fun and interesting to play.
The build quality is the best I've experienced in a Mexi Strat, this being my third. Feels way more solid.
Now after seeing 7StringsOfGrammaticalError's Tele, I wouldn't mind one of those either, after playing this.
I think I'm getting old.
Nice! I love black strats, they're classy yet mean.
I also bought one of those Telecasters, they sound really good, but the frets are sharp, and the hardware isn't the best. You get what you pay for, and then some.
Bah now I want a strat
