  • The moment he said strat I knew sultans of swing was going to be played. Most famous strat song in my opinion

  • That wiring job reminded me of what it looked like behind my old stereo system back in the day. A giant multi colored bird's nest built by a drunken bird. Personally , I would probably put a heavier gauge strings (10's) on her to fatten that tone up a little. Otherwise , it's a beautiful guitar.
