    NGD: American Vintage '70s

    Thank you for congratulating me :) I don't know why the AV '70s never really took off, but you're right that the MIMs are very close to the USA models! I have both now so I can compare them.

    NGD: American Vintage '70s

    When did you decide to get a Fender?

    I wanted to have a Strat since I was about 12 or 13 years old. I still remember looking at the 1979 Anniversary Strat at the local music shop back then hoping that some day I could afford a Fender myself.

    Picture: Rory Gallagher presenting a Strat.

    Saw this on Facebook and thought some people would love this pic. The caption reads: Rory presenting Helen Brook with a 1979 sunburst finish, maple neck Fender Stratocaster at the Bond Street, London HMV store having won a competition to describe Rory's music.

    Squier Classic vibe Indonesia bad rep???

    I sold my CV 60s Strat the other day. Not because I didn't like it but because to thin out my collection. I am not an expert but I honestly found that Squier very nice. It was well built and sounded great. So in my opinion, there's nothing wrong with Indonesian built Squiers.

    Which vintage year Strat do you prefer? And why?

    I chose 1965 because I believe Jimi played a 1965 Strat on his first album ("Are You Experienced"). Not sure, though.

    Would You Play Hard Rock on a Strat With a Natural Finish ?

    Fast Eddie Clarke played hard rock on a Natural Finish so the answer is "yes!"

    A Stratocaster is better than a Les Paul because?

    Because it was Jimi's favourite guitar.
