Hi, I'm Gianni. I got my first electric guitar on December 25th of last year (well, last month). I have been playing acoustically with my Tanglewood Indiana for about a year. My first electric guitar was an MIM Standard Telecaster. It just felt right in the shop at the time. However, before Teles were even on my radar, Strats had always fascinated me. I noticed that many of the all time greats such as Clapton and Hendrix, favoured these beasts over all others. I will now unashamedly admit that I was lured over from TDPRI by the CV Strat offer. However, I am no 'points whore' and hope to make a contribution to this community as I love guitars, though I'd obviously love a Strat to accompany my Tele. On TDPRI, the guys there helped me take off with my Tele. I learnt a few things there. From being in this community and contributing to it, I hope to have learnt enough about one of the most iconic guitars in existence so that I know what to look for in a Strat for when I eventually get one. Watch for my posts.
