So, I'd been trying to catch up to this guy who had a decent-looking strat for trade. He wanted a combo amp. I wanted a strat. I had $350 in my Blackstar HT20 Studio and thought that would be a decent price for a Strat. (I'd done a little research on this model.)
But we kept missing each other because we're both busy. So, on my way to a business thing some miles away, I met him at a gas station along I-35 and we each looked at what the other had and traded.
And then I hauled the guitar with me to my business thing. So this is a hotel room shot and it's shitty, but I'll get better photos when I get home.
It's an E-series MIJ strat with a Kahler trem, rosewood fretboard, etc. It's very solid, has a couple of decent dings in it (I might have it painted anyway) but the neck seems straight and it seems to be all factory and it plays well.
You can't see it because of the shitty picture but the grain on this rosewood fretboard is amazing.
Anyway, better pics when I get home. Fender hard case included.
