    26511300-898F-4983-A9DD-04712CF78759.png I saw my coworkers band play today and I helped them unload their gear and ate burgers with them, after the show and my coworker told my band mates what I play and the guitarist and I had an awesome conversation about gear and Stratocasters and he told me about his original 58 strat and he asked if I would like to play it, of course I said yes, so the rest of the band comes along and I’ve never played a vintage strat and it felt amazing and they were making jokes about me sitting in as the guitarist and the guitarists daughter is in a band and he said I have stuff to bring to the table so hopefully I’ll be in a band, and it just felt awesome being complimented on my playing and playing such a beautiful guitar and I’m happy to say that I can check it off my bucket list :)

    That's actually kind of awesome. I'm in the "a guitar is a tool that's meant to be used" camp, so I'd like to think I would keep gigging my '59 Stat.

    But then again, I don't actually own a guitar that's worth more than my house, so I might react differently in those circumstances.
