[GEAR][NGD] Went through a lot of guitars to realize that I really am just a boring Strat guy. Fender Professional II Strat!

Fender American Professional II Stratocaster

Bought and sold a ton of guitars throughout the last year and a half, including multiple Gibson LPs, PRSs, a Gretsch, a number of different Strats and tried out a ton of other stuff extensively at stores, trying to find what I really liked best and I just kept coming to back to the Fender Stratocaster.

I think I'm finally ready to call it with this one (that's what they always say) as it's a straightforwars Strat with everything I could want and more. The addition of the push/push knob that adds the neck pickup to whatever position you're on, giving you 2 extra positions is awesome, and the whole guitar just sounds and plays great!

I'm glad I got to try out all the guitars I did, especially since I was jumping on deals and making a bit of money off of most of them, but hopefully I've found the one I'll settle with!

[DISCUSSION] Going to buy A Fender Mod Shop Strat, for reasons.

Disclaimer: I just found out FMS was a thing today. I'm a little excited and hopefully you will understand why.

Story time, TL;DR at the end.

Way back when, in the long ago time of 1999, I was approaching my 18th birthday and wanted to buy myself something nice for the occasion. I'd been playing for a few years, and had a few acoustics and electrics (I paid retail for a Jag-Stang new off the rack, another one I shouldn't have parted with), and very badly wanted an American Standard Strat like the guitar gods I'd been raised on played. Off to the store I go.

Local small-town shop had a surprisingly large selection, and I spent a good part of an afternoon playing stratocasters. I eventually pared them down to The One, gave the man behind the counter $999 + tax (inflation, man) and home with me it went. While the occasion provided built-in sentimental value from day one, I never considered the instrument itself anything special to anyone but myself. There are many like it, but this One is mine.

Or so I thought. On both counts.

Fast forward two weddings and a divorce, and life found financial excuses for me to part with my beloved, whom I'd owned over a decade at the time. Not a happy memory but I tempered it with the thought, "One day I'll get another one just like it."

just like it

Hmmm... Now there's the thing. That didn't turn out to be as easy as I'd assumed it would be. I could get close, but it just wasn't the right guitar. You see, eighteen year-old me went and bought a fucking unicorn. An Inca Silver, Hardtail-with-a-maple-fretboard unicorn.

A Robert Cray signature model is NOT my guitar, it has a rosewood fretboard and Robert Cray's name on it. An Inca Silver Strat with a tremolo bridge is NOT my guitar. Ebay, Reverb, everywhere I look is NOT my guitar. And I do look, like a jilted ex stalking social media. I found one once, on a craiglist post several states away that was 18 months out of date at the time, and I didn't have two grand to part with if it wasn't.

I still search, but honestly I'd given up.

Until I decided, "Fuck it, I'm turning 40, how much does the Custom Shop want for my unicorn?" The answer is, I'd have to spec it out and inquire. Surely Google can provide estimates? $2,000-$10,000+, alright that's a pretty big window. Wait, what's the Mod Shop?

And here we are... $1749.58 and they'll make it and ship it to my door, like it popped out of a wormhole to the late 90's. I'm floored, just knowing I can do this is an indesc

[QUESTION] Is a Fender Player Series strat an overkill for a first electric guitar?

I am a fairly skilled classical guitarist that wants to get into blues/jazz. I've been burnt as a kid by buying a cheap electric guitar in a bundle, so I want to get something good that will last me for years. I don't want to get a traditional jazz hollow body, as I want something versatile. I'm leaning towards a Stratocaster at the moment.

Feeling a bit like I won the lottery... I went into town earlier in the week after the covid restrictions were lifted in the UK and unfortunately my local guitar shop is closing down due to the owner retiring, and he had a couple of guitars still unsold from last year. This was listed for Β£2000 but they let me buy it for Β£600! It is in amazing condition for the year and it feels fantastic to play, and sounds incredible. I can't believe it!
