Hi everyone, I introduced myself in the intro forum now want to intro my guitar. Its a 2015 Fender American Standard Strat. I bought the guitar online (I know, stupid move) From guitar center. The first picture is the guitar I actually bought and the second picture is the guitar they sent me. When it arrived I was excited to unbox it. When I pulled it from the box I was furious that this was not the guitar I bought and also the ad said it came with a case and no case. I contacted guitar center and they said I could take it to any of their stores for a refund and if I wanted to keep it they would send me a case. What I mainly disliked about the guitar is the stainless pick guard and the guitar I bought had fat 50's pickups and this one did not. I decided well while it is here I had may as well check it out. As soon as I started playing it I fell in love. I told myself, well tone is a lot more important with a guitar than looks. Sure I like the looks of the guitar I was supposed to get better but this one sounded so good. I have no regrets anymore about owning this guitar. I also have a Gibson Les Paul studio and just purchased a PRS CE24. The Strat is still my favorite and my go to guitar.
