Thanks everyone, I'm glad to see everyone approving my move of buying a strat....

I went to the store today... and it was one of the worst day of my life. I have to say that I live about 30 minutes from Downtown Montreal (or the guitar shop if you prefer). While I was traveling there my car broke down on the Higway but in a place where there is no place to pull over and where two higways are merging, so it means a whole bunch of trafic.

I almost got hit by a van that was going way to fast. I couldn't do anything so they brought me to the garage and it cost me 600$ with the towing and the job on my car.

Once it was done, I went to the store and they finally adjust the guitar. They did an okay job but I don't think it is perfect, I still find that the A string is buzzing around the 12th fret but I will keep it like that for now. If it really annoy me I'll bring it to a luther that I know.

So finally I can play with my Strat but I almost got killed and it cost me 600$. After buying a guitar and reparing my car I'm totally broke but hey..... I don't care I plug my strat and I play the blues

Rock On everyone and thanks for your support on my new guitar
(sorry for the mistakes, english is not my first language and I almost got killed a couple of hours ago. rolleyes.gif )

By the way.... How do you name your guitars guys? This guitar needs a name but I don't know how to name it for now. It has to be a girl name because this guitar give me so much feeling thats its like ...... Nevermind, I shouldn't go to far in those kinds of details wink.gif .

Oh my god, dude! What a bad day sad.gif Must have been a real tragedy mad.gif Why couldn´t they fix your guitar properly this time?

And yeeah, it has to be a girl name for sure! Take a good one, so that you don´t ever have to change the name. Maybe you got a sister or a good friend of yours with a beautiful name?

I once named my guitar after my girlfriend, no good idea at all tongue.gif

Anyway, good luck & don´t worry about your english it´s pretty decent wink.gif

cheers

They told me that it was normal to hear some buzz sometime and if I wanted to have absolutely no buzz they would have to raise the action alot. I was in a Just fix the damn thing kind of mood so i didn't argue with them and I love the action so I didn't want to get it messed up.. The buzz isn't to bad I'm just a little picky I think I am going to wait and if it continues to annoy me I am goind to a luther.

Of course after a broken car you don't want to be charge by a luther because some salesperson give you a really bad service.

Sorry to hear about your bad day sad.gif Its good that you got it fixed now...Regarding small buzz, it may diminish in time..Guitar needs to be played a little when its new (frets get worn , buzz diminishes)..
