I don’t know if any of you have seen the Wine Red, left handed, Strat that Lonn had for sale. It was listed at a price I couldn’t refuse. It’s just beautiful. From the early 2000’s I think. It’s been almost two years since I got my left handed daughter a Squier Standard for her. I felt lucky to get that guitar at the price I did. I got it on clearance. I think I paid $179.00 for it brand new, due to the fact that the trem cavity was done kinda rough. Couldn’t see anything with the cover on. My daughter has played off and on since she got it. But then we had COVID happen and the fires last summer, and we’ll, we didn’t play much during that time. I always regretted that I didn’t have the money to get her a real Fender. But then along comes @Lonn with a beautiful wine red MIM Strat. So she will have a guitar at my house and one at hers. I went to Guitar center this morning to sell a couple guitars so I could pay for the new one. I took my Epiphone LP Jr and my Baretta Special. The gal that was working there told me she could only pay me 50 bucks for the EPI. I said thanks I will keep it. Well, she took a look at the Kramer Baretta Special, and brings her manager out. He looks at it from afar, and then whispered something in her ear and she comes back with”I can only pay you $150.00”. I said OK. They must have thought must have thought that it was a higher model Baretta. They gave me $150.00, and I only paid $179.00 for the Baretta new. It even says Baretta Special on the truss rod cover. This the same store that gave me an unbelievable amount on a Kramer Pacer that I sold them. I got enough to buy an LP Studio and come out with a little over a hundred bucks in my pocket. I really think that these guys at GC are inept. However, I don’t feel it is my job to educate them. She should have paid more on the EPI and less on the Kramer. I mean WTF? My granddaughter came with me to GC. I bought her some Maracas. Over all it was an enjoyable day.
