can i join the club now? heh. so i turn 40 on oct 17th. my mom was going to replace a ipad i broke. ( bad leg gave out, as i fell it hit the floor.. poof black screen death.. still working in the back ground tho.. paper weight now..) anyhow, the new ipads cam out on the 17ths i should say were aounced.. but were not released fror another week etc.. after some talking she thought a guitar would be better, and wont be out dated.. i agree.. so i spent the last few weeks trying to figure out what id like... so i came down to 3 guitars.. Taylor GS MINI, Epi Hollow body special edition sorendo i think, and a fender FSR tele.. i figured id let my mom choose.. so i email her the 3 guitars id be happy with whatever. its a gift from my mom who is getting up their in age.. so anyhow she picked the fender. i was sorta surprised. figured she go with the epi. laughs.. i took advantage of the 15% MF had.. and through in a Digi tech ambient reverb pedal. so i got a guitar and a nice reverb for 79.00. i made out like a bandit. the fender fsr tele is great.. it feels lighter than my SG which strang since iv read this model is heavy from lots of threads on here.. anyhow i dig this tele.. i know its the honey moon phase.. will gett o know her in the morning.. ups just dropped her off a little while ago.. i can say the fender FSR tele is a good quality axe. i dunno what mods i will do if any.. will have to get to know her over the next few weeks before i decide if i need new pups to mesh with my gear. if so ill probably look into some keystones. o yeah, i need to take some sand paper to the neck.. whatever finish they use. its not very slippery. no big deal, steal wool or 600 grit sand paper will do. thats all i can say for now, till morning when i plug into my pedals and start to focus. rock on. here is to a good honey moon. ..... ill get pictures in the morning, or it didnt happen. chris.
