Well he was wearing a "G" string !

He was caught looking longingly at a piano.

He was probably highly strung  Cheesy

Unfortunately it was just stringing him along. Wink

No need to fret, he won't need to go before a grand jury...
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Unlikely to be a genuine Fender Strat at that price.

Re: Is that a Strat...?

A Squier Strat I would guess.
(much better than their cheap price implies, a great base to make some really worthwhile modifications to and end up with a great sounding guitar)

I have one but haven't played it for a couple of years. Probably needs restringing now but yes it does have a good tone for it's price.
Not as good as my American Strat but playable.

Re: Is that a Strat...?

I'm a Tele man these day's, but like you I have a Squier Strat (the Hank Marvin model in Fiesta Red) to which I have replaced the pick-ups for Tex-Mex and the trem unit now has a genuine Fender unit, but has been wound down to a "hard-tail" (was never much of a trem user anyway) the electronics have been upgraded and the neck has been fettled for some slightly high buzzing frets and frankly sounds rather good now.
Its actually going next week, a local player has taken a real liking to it and is paying rather more than I did for it new.
