    My 3 year old has been demanding I get a “red guitar” for almost a year. While away for work last 4 months, I found this on reverb for a wicked price just before Christmas.

    To be honest, I was thinking of buying a 335 or 339 as strats typically haven’t done it for me, but my wife (/accountant) liked the look of this one, and thinks “those gibsons look like violins” so we compromised and bought the strat. Hardly going to complain.

    That said, I’ve spent the last 2 months learning Knopfler, Clapton and Frusciante songs to get ready for today. Let’s see how she goes.

    I love the finish on your Strat. There’s no mistaking it for a guitar off the wall at GC. Your wife was right. Enjoy your new guitar.

    Mine is an FCS ‘69. It’s at the opposite extreme of finish options. When I brought mine home my wife wanted to know if they were throwing it out.
