Thanks to all you replied to my previous post. Being mainly an acoustic guitar player, I am super excited to try out an eletric guitar! Just got this baby off of CraigsList. It's a beautiful sunbrust 2000 Fender Std Strat (made in USA). Seemed like in good shape.
Now on to the next (rather complex) step of figuring out the right amp, pedal etc. My goal is build some sweet soloing skills soon
