    Hi, I'm Mark....

    Been playing many, many years, but you wouldn't know it.

    I've owned a number of Strats over the years, American, Squier, and Strat copies. Always end up getting rid of them (been a Gibson guy the whole time).

    Even though I can never seem to get along with them for very long, I just love the sound (and look) of a Strat.

    Well, I now have my first MIM Strat, and love it.... for now!

    Looks like a great place, I don't "talk" much, but if I see a place where I can contribute, I will!

    Hi Mark, and welcome!
    It is one of my duties to request that you post photos of your guitars, or at least of your Strat, so we can admire them! ;)

    Hi Mark. Great guitar choice the MIM, especially if they don't last long with ya (certainly flipping US Strat's in the U.K can be costly !)

    Hope this one breaks from the norn and sticks around.

    I'm a big Gibson fan also but currently without one (that will change before the end of 17)

    Good to have you on board

    Alan

    Hey Mark,
    Nice rig.
    Here's my 2006 mim.
    What year is yours?
    I think I'm going to change the pick guard.

    Welcome.

    Mark, I did just the opposite as you, I sold almost all of my Gibsons. Fenders just play better for me, but some guys make Gibsons sound great.

    Welcome to the fold Mark. No problem liking Gibsons, many of us here have both Fender and Gibson guitars.
