This was my first guitar. I got it as a birthday present from my dad when I was 10, almost 8 years ago. The amp it came with sucks, but this axe is still with me to this day and even though I have better guitars now, it still plays and sounds amazing! It's a bit old, I reckon it's from 2002 based on the serial number, which also gave her it's name "AK-2002". It's the best to play anything by Dire Straits of Pink Floyd in my collection because of it's single coils, but with it's high output humbucker, it's also amazing for Punk and Thrash! I'll keep this one forever, it's a workhorse.
