Guitars: 1963 Fender Stratocaster
Ripping it up on the '63 at the SA Blue Cats CD Release Party Aug 2009.
This particular guitar just kind of "came my way" a few years ago. Had to trade another guitar and some cash to get her. But, MAN! This guitar is freaking AWESOME! A refret, new nut and one replaced pot but otherwise original parts. She even came with a harder to find white case. What attracted me to it originally was how beautifully the guitar resonates when playing her unplugged. I hit an open "G" chord and knew I just had to have her.
You can ALWAYS tell I am having fun due to the HUGE smile on my face when playing this guitar.
I've heard some players and collector's say that 1963 was the best year for Stratocasters. I can say that in this case I would have to agree.
