    Hi Strat People!
    I am so glad to find this forum. I have been playing rhythm acoustic guitar, accompanying myself singing for years, but I have always loved electric guitars. I've had a few electric guitars, including a Gibson, a Suhr, and a Fender Tele., but the guitar I now have the good fortune to own has really stolen my heart. I have never felt that I deserved to have those higher end guitars until I could play lead. But for some reason, none of those guitars resonated the way this Fender Special American Strat does, and it sounds exquisite through my tube amp. Now I really feel motivated and inspired, and I want to learn to play lead, among other things. It's never too late, right? I will post more photos soon. Stay tuned!

    Hi and welcome.
    Guitars are quite strange things, the one that cost you a lot is not always the one...

    Great, welcome! Playing rhythm and singing actually will make you a much better lead player. Do you have pics of your American Special? They're IMO one of the best bangs for the buck out there.
