Strat fact
the only reason there are so many stratocasters around is that they are simply too large to fit in a house hold blender.

Like an acoustic, they make great kindling though.
So, is that low alcohol or no alcohol at all? mmmm, no alcohol, do you want to try it? Noooooooooo.

One morning you will wake up in your bed feeling pleasantly exhausted with the sun streaming down on a stratocaster lying next to you.

That's a serious hand tremor; must have been a Surf player.

I have had a fair few Les Paul guitars since the 1980s, including a custom shop one. The best one by far is my current one. A humble 1990s Studio model with an ebony fingerboard. Dimarzio Super Distortion in the bridge and Dimarzio 36th Anniversary PAF in the neck. I do not know why, but it just sounds really good. Plays pretty good too (not as well as my SG, but it sounds better).
