    Hello everyone, I’m a 62 year old male living in Port Orange Fl. I’ve lived here for 12 years and I am retired. I’ve played guitar most of my life. Being inspired, by The Beatles first performance on the Ed Sullivan Show in 1964, to learn guitar.

    I played in a band in high school and into my late teens. Now I play only for my own enjoyment. My guitars include a few Gibsons, Les Pauls and a Sg, but I’ve always owned a Stratocaster since 1980.

    My first Strat was a Natural 1974 with a maple fretboard, it was far from stock. The previous owner changed out the tuners, bridge, pickguard, and the neck plate, (to a 4 bolt).

    I sold that guitar a few years ago and I bought a used 2015 mim White Strat with a rosewood board and some nice upgrades. It came with a large steel block upgraded trem bridge, Fender locking tuners, upgraded string retainer and a USA Jeff Beck Hot Noiseless loaded pickguard.

    My music preference is rock and blues.

    Good to have you! I have a white MIM Strat as well. Upgraded it with different pickups and now she’s a favorite.

    Welcome I’m a long time Florida resident. Sarasota. Short time player, one year worth of lessons. And an even shorter strat owner. 4 months. I’ve found this to be a great group of people. Though pics do seem to be required.

    Though I currently live in the mid-west, I still consider Florida my home. I still have a lot of family there including one of my sons. I only have one wanna be Strat but I enjoy it very much. It is a very good copy. I am within a year of retirement and hope I might get a real Strat someday.

    I am also new to the forum. Welcome!

    Never been down to Florida...yet...but recently retired. Welcome to the forum. If I ever see a guitar like that for sale I'll sell my 2 partscasters and spring for it. It was in the early 70s that I heard a band playing a natural finish strat with overdrive and chorus and I can still hear that awesome tone in my head.
