Here is the story....
Eric Clapton (and more specifically the song "Layla") made me want to play guitar. so when it came time to get a real guitar and get rid of my epi SG, i knew i wanted a black fender strat with a maple neck but didn't have $1600 for a clapton sig . So i bought a 2008 MIA strat for 850 at GC, for christmas got a set of Lace Hot Golds and a midboost kit which came in yesterday . And now i have a better Clapton start for about $800 less(after fender price hike)!!! plus i have a better bridge, tuners and bigger frets than the Clapton sig. i don't care if anyone reads this, im just so happy i have the guitar of my dreams and this one means so much more to me because i did all the work on it.... and i have nicknamed it...."Frankie" after my grandpa and uncle frank who paid for half and the "construction" i did on it like EC and EVH. can't wait to go home and play it, it plays like a dream and im just so damn happy !!!!!
