Hello everyone, my name is Jon and I currently reside in S. America. Been a long time player but recently fell in love with the strat sound, and not having any single coil loaded guitars, decided it was time to get one. I bought a Squier Deluxe Hot Rails in white a few months ago, but waiting for a loaded pick guard to arrive (SSL-1 x3 in white) from the U.S. - until that comes, found a very cheap but beaten up Squier Standard Deluxe QMT in wine burst with pearl pick guard but needed a refret, so sent it for some love and affection and won't get it back until the end of the month. Having been wanting a stratty single coil sound, I broke down and bought a cheap SE I found a few days ago. I read so much about how good this guitar can be (and how cheap it could be had for) and so I couldn't resist. Girlfriend loves my guitars and appreciates my love for music, but this is the third in less than 2 months... she will not be so happy tonight!
