"Before the Red Hot Chili Peppers show at Allstate arena yesterday, guitarist Josh Klinghoffer stopped by Chicago Music Exchange looking for '59 Fender Stratocaster with a rosewood fretboard and a different neck than what he's currently touring with. Dan Wean showed him our early pre-CBS Strat collection. As soon as Josh had the 1959 Sunburst Stratocaster in his hands he knew it was the one. He went into one of our amp rooms and returned telling us it was the "best guitar I've ever played"." - [Chrissy Hansen](http://www.chicagomusicexchange.com/blogs/soundboard/14266077-red-hot-chili-peppers-josh-klinghoffer-shopping-for-a-strat), Chicago Music Exchange.more
