I had some extra money so I decided to upgrade my first guitar(Slammer by Hamer) and went out and bought a Mexican Stratocaster for about 400 bucks. My first guitar was actually I really grteat guitar for the price and has served me well so far. I replaced the strings on the Strat but for some reason it just doesn't feel as great as my first less expensive guitar. I think it's the strings or something but my slides and pulloffs and hammerons don't feel or come as easy as with my first guitar. I've only had it for two days does it just need to be "broken in" and gotten used to? And if so any tips on "breaking it in" faster? Thanks, Chris

Haha I thought so...this means it does need to be broken in before it starts to feel "right"?

do you mean the way the neck plays or the pickups/sound?

I think to get a feel for a guitar you need to play something you like on it and make it sound good, you know what I'm saying?

oh you just need to get a feel for both necks
i have a strat copy with a thick neck, and an ibanez RG with the thinnest neck ive ever seen and eventually i was able to play both just as good
(except the strat copy still sounds like **** no matter what)

Yeah, it's probably got a different set up and a different style neck. Just play it till it bleeds and you'll come to adore it.
