Sold my Gibson SG Special Faded 3PU. With the cash I got, I bought a Fender Standard Stratocaster MIA.

Play more Jazz than Metal. Loving it =) I always have a big smile when I am playing this beauty

FENDERS FTW!
I love my Fender, she's great.
I hope you are happy with your MIA, the ones I've played have been great (but that was my guitar teachers custom shop )

You have entered the Twilight Zone
Beyond this world strange things are known
Use this key, unlock the door
See what your fate might have in store
Come explore your dreams' creation
Enter this world of imagination

I've noticed that once you Strat, you can't stop.

Sold the Gibson for more than I paid for it.

I love the SG sound as well, but this suits me a bit more =).

I read the post somehow missing the part about selling the Gibson for the Fender, and I thought the guitar was the SG. I saw the pictures and was like, 'um, wtf lol.'

HNGD! Looks great!

I paid 800 Euros (1130 USD/700 GBP) with the hardcase. Mine did not include an amp. I bought it in Hong Kong.

HNGD, but the only good Fender is a Telecaster with humbuckers :\
