Hello! I am a strat guy through and through. My first electric was a MiM strat built in 1995 that I still have and the only remaining factory parts are made of wood. I have two USA strats, pictured is my custom shop 1960 style. I also have a 2015 Am STD. Finally, I have a Grosh made strat as well, finished in what they call tie-die. Each one has it's own personality and inspires me in different ways. I strayed from strats for a long time, mostly playing bass in my short gigging career. It took 20+ years for me to come full circle and realize my favorite guitar was my first guitar. I think I am an OK guitarist and if there is one thing I have improved with time it is how to listen when playing with others. I love Fender history and the Telecaster is a close 2nd for me. Leo had an amazing run and I also love his amps.
