Wildwood American Vintage Thin Skin FSR in Charcoal Frost Metallic. Previous owner had a Mastery bridge professionally installed; included the work order and everything. Buying a guitar like this is a very surreal experience for me. Used/import guitars don't come with nice hard cases, certificates of authenticity, straps, cables, booklets, etc. You get an instrument and you buy the rest-if you can afford it. It's an extremely different experience. Opening the case felt like it was saying "Welcome to Fender Guitars Mr. KT89. Feel free to have a seat in our lounge-Would you like something to drink while you wait?" It has a nitrocellulose finish which feels remarkably different from any poly finished guitar, of which I currently own 4. Similar to the modded PRS Vela I briefly owned, it feels "warm" rather than "cold." Like my other guitars are marble finished and this one is upholstered in silk. It truly does smell like cake. I've played Road Worn guitars, Highway Ones and I've played Custom Shop guitars that are relic'd and they don't feel like the same kind of finish as this guitar. I've avoided nitro finishes because to me they felt too "dry," which I didn't like. I guess this one will eventually feel that way too but for now it just feels like silk. The fit and finish are simply a cut above the rest. It sounds like a guitar should sound, I don't know how to describe it. If you've only owned Epiphones, Mexican Fenders, Squiers, etc. and you go play nicer guitars in shops you know what I'm talking about. When you replace the pickups and the electronics and the guitar finally sounds "real" rather than just "good enough." It's the difference between playing modeling amps that sound like tube amps and feeling the real thing firsthand. I had to put more money into upgrades for my #1 than I did on the guitar in the first place before it sounded like it felt. The road to get here was a very long one. I've been in college for 6 years, battling through multiple majors, identity crises, mental health problems, motivation issues and generally questioning if I was on the right path in life. I managed to get a job that I start in one month in an essential industry. When I left high school I had a nice Schecter guitar with nice pickups, an EVH 5150 III and an Orange 112. It was a rig fit for someone much older than I was, but I was a kid who had a job and no bills to pay so I had nice things. As I struggled my way through college I slowly had to sell every piece of my rig I owned to make tuition and rent. At one point I only owned an acoustic. To play electric again I had to buy an Epiphone from a pawn shop for $80 that was missing a tuner and cracked and dinged and chipped all over. I built a mini tube amp for not much more that was so noisy you could hear that it was on from the kitchen. That was my rig for years. I transferred schools in my senior year due to mental health problems and it took summers worth of work and higher scholarships reducing my financial burden to be able to spend 350 on a Mexican Fender, my first guitar that said Fender on the headstock which to this day is a huge deal to me. In the two years since I've managed to save a bit more money and had a couple guitars come and go, the funds from selling one being put into the next but always the cheaper version of the guitar I really wanted. Epiphones, low end PRSs, etc. I didn't have a "real" amp until 4 months ago and again I had to make it myself. To me this guitar represents so much more than an instrument sitting in my room. It is a statement. I made it. It was worth it. I know who I am and I got here myself. This guitar has no compromises; it is simply exactly what I wanted. It probably won't become my #1 just because it costs 5x as much, but it represents me growing up and making my own way in the world. I almost cried when I first opened the case. Thank you anyone who listened to my rambling. We're all gonna make it.
