    Impulse buy - NGD

    Sign in to disable this ad
    I've always liked the feel of a strat, just (generally) not the electronics. The first volume control was my nemesis, I'd always hit it at the wrong time, and turn down my volume.

    So when I saw this locally last night, I had it bought and home within a couple hours. Less than a year old, with a hardshell case too. Poor student needed some money ...
    Model is a 70's Pawnshop Stratocaster Deluxe. MiM, strat body, 70's neck and headstock, Tele pickup at the neck, Tele Deluxe HB (they call it an Enforcer) at the bridge. So far, I'm pretty pleased, but it needs a full workout, which I won't have time to get to for several days. Initial tests indicate that the Enforcer is going to be interesting.

    Here's a photo that works. Actual guitar, no link this time.

    Never seen one of those. I learned that you should buy what you want, if it plays nice. I bought quite a few Chinese copies to use as set decoration for a touring show - they were going to be trucked around and not played. Some were dogs. However, I kept two because they played really nicely and looked stunning. One, all knotty wood that looked amazing, is much lighter than the thing it pretends to be, but has a lovely jazzy tone when played without effects - so I'm keeping this one too!

    That's really unusual guitar and its pretty cool. Its not really my cup of tea, I can't imagine spending money on it... but saying that I will soon have 4 guitars with a pair of humbuckers in! Maybe about time I got something different.

    So how much was it? I heard Cdn$ is only worth US$0.75 right now.

    Thanx for the well wishes - I've had some people love it and others not; opinion-wise, it seems to be quite a polarizing guitar.
    Had you paid in USD, the cost would have been about $320 bucks (a bit more in CAD ). Not a bad deal, considering the hard case.

    Congrats. I love that feeling of getting a new guitar home.
