    New Guitar Day!

    Picked up this beauty on Craigslist. My first HSS strat. I think having a bridge humbucker on a Strat completes it. I love this guitar! 1. Tremolo system that stays in tune with the hardest abuse 2. Classic Strat neck PU tone with bridge humbucker can do it all (the Fender PUs actually...
