    When I first got my Strat eight years ago, I followed this forum like a hawk. I remember the agonising feeling of waiting for the Strat to arrive in the mail and the immense joy of receiving it!
    Today I celebrate the 8 year anniversary of getting my Strat in my hands for the first time (I have a thing for the number 8) and had to celebrate this by posting a small clip of me playing this Strat live.

    It's a 2011 American Standard Strat and I got it in 2011. I have used it for every gig with my band and have never broken a string with it. It's bone stock and is full of dings and rust but I love it!

    Would be cool to hear what you think about the sound and playing!



    Thanks!

    Love it. Cool story, and great playing. Love it when someone falls in love with a guitar, plays it all the time, and can’t get enough of it.

    I got my HSS Strat in 2016, it's a 2012 Artic White Strat that I turned into a Suhr Pete Thorn clone (totally tricked out).

    I don't gig but my couch in the ManCave doesn't seem to mind my playing. At least it hasn't complained yet.

    It was a great day when the guitar arrived. After all the mods (Suhr pickups, killer wiring harness, locking tuners, Tusq Nut, etc.) its the only guitar I'll have forever.

    Thanks, man! We're on Spotify, Bandcamp and iTunes. This tune and three others were on a vinyl that we released about 3 months ago! :)

    Once again, thank you everyone! There's really something about trustworthy guitars that you love. It's a great companion to have!
