This was the first guitar i bought for myself after starting to learn. I bought it in 2012, it took me a year of saving at 16 but was worth it.
whatever i wanted to play this guitar can handle. if i ever get writers block i pick up this strat and new ideas begin to flow out. I considered changing the pickups a couple of times but could never bring myself to do it.
great if you want to do a bit of everything.
