MAYBE... we'll see.


My music shop will call me as soon as they recieve it. It's a Fender American Special HSS sunburst Strat.

It's been on display on the FUZZ guitar show and I'm getting it unless it's been squeezed to destruction. My thoughs are that Fender most likerly sorted out the ones with twigs in the body and this one is a little better than average wink.gif

Hoping there will be no sad news like; oops the neck broken in two during transport.
After they check it and find it to be in top condition I'm getting it at a discount price. I suppose it's been professionally set up already before the guitar show so that's a couple of bucks in it too. And I don't have to do it, unprofessionally myself laugh.gif


Have to add, it's my first American strat.

I'm really liking these mate, be interested to hear what you think of them, I think the spec is outrageously good at the price they are charging!
In fact i might go try one today!

Fail! dry.gif
When they unpacked the box at the store there was a SSS with a maple neck. NOT what I wanted laugh.gif

He suggested I go for an American Standard instead, has that little extra so I will stand satisfied for a life time or so wink.gif

Desicions desicions.

Oh man sorry to hear that. I don't think you should rush things now. Just try out some American strats and/or try to find the one you wanted in different store...

That's _my_ store, if you know what I mean. It was actually Fender that misinformed them, I don't blame the store. smile.gif
