Hey everyone, there is not the biggest point to this thread, but i did want to share with everyone that I have found the "one" guitar It is not the most expensive or highest quality guitar, but it is just perfect in my hands playability wise. It was a gift from a friend, a 2006 Fender Standard Stratocaster in chrome red with a maple neck. It is a few years old, but it is still new, its been hanging on the wall at the guitar store he works at, that i used to work at, for some time, and i have always had my eye on it, but he got it for me.


The pickups are great, but not perfect, and way down the road, i may upgrade them, but this is the first guitar that i do not want to rip apart and change stuff around in, so we will see later if i want to bother with a pup change. i have had it for a month, and since i got it, it has been everything i could ask for, but i have realized that it is perfect and it is the "one" i have been looking for!

feel free to share similar stories or tell us about that "one" axe that just seems to melt in your hands.

ps. thank you Paco, or Juan, or Jose, or Marco, or Horatio, or Ignacio, or Jorge for building this MIM strat so perfectly just for me

Paco and Juan must be so proud that you enjoyed their slave labour.

Your guitar is a beaut, Spootz. :P However, you say you love it just as it is, so I don't think you really need to upgrade the pups.

A few months back, I purchased a Squier Telecaster Custom. Amazing guitar, and it feels very comfortable in my hands. I knew from when I first saw it that I'd HAVE to get it.

You forgot George, pronounced Hoarhey.

ive had my eyes on this one for over a year at the shop and always wanted it. the pups will most likely remain stock, im not looking for an upgrade at all, just open minded to it

How about you remove the racist comments on the end of your post?

Congrats on finding the "one" also. I found my "one" a few months ago as well. It happened to be a 2009 American Deluxe Strat.

It's not racist, you fool, it was a joke. Who else would have made a guitar in Mexico? Dan? Eric? No, probably Spanish people.

EDIT: TS, that is one sweet axe you have there, I'm glad you found one that you love

mines a fender mustang with a bridge humbucker but ill have to wait about six months for that one.
#15
My guitar is a Schecter C-1. Without any fancy prefix. Played one recently and it has just the most perfect feel to it. Hopefully I can afford it around Christmas or so.

Anyway, nice guitar. It will look amazing with age, with the pickguard cream-ening, as 3hta_bryce stated.

Just because something is a joke does not mean that it is inherently not racist. Whether or not is or is not intended to be or comes across as racist... I'm pretty sure that there's a good number of people that might find it offensive. Frankly, I was doing the guy a favor telling him to remove it. I've seen people get warned for comments like that. I'm not going to do it, but another mod might. And why is it that there cannot be people in Mexico named Dan or Eric? I'm fairly certain that there are people in American with all of the names he listed.

Yup, and there are Asians with the name of Dan or Eric too, but when you think Asian, I'm certain that even you, the racist police, think of a name like Li or Wong.

Very nice. If you ever decide to change the pups, I recommend Lindy Fralin's. Amazing pups, better than anything else I've tried in a Strat.

I am not the racist police; I am a Super Moderator on these forums. I'm not sure what your problem is. Like I said, I was trying to save the guy some trouble. Somebody else might have just warned him.

As you can see, racist content is against the rules. What is deemed appropriate or not is decided by the moderators. It is my opinion that some Mexican people might find the comment offensive. It's simple enough to remove it. I didn't get mad at the guy. I didn't issue him a warning. I just asked that he remove the comment.

If you would like to discuss this further, feel free to PM me. This thread is about a guy who found a guitar he loves, not about you arguing with me. And frankly, I don't really appreciate you calling me a fool or patronizing me with the "racist police" remark. It's not like I made some absurd remark or demand or banned the guy. I would be much more inclined to ban you for your comments to me in this thread actually. I'm just doing my job. If you have a problem, PM me.
