Traded gittars

Recommended Posts

I've owned a '97 Custom Strat for a few years...great ax, the best one I've ever owned. I guess I should say, "I used to own it". The last year or so it's sat in it's case most of the time. And that ain't right. So I traded it to my son (who was gonna get it when I die, anyway) for his mim Tele.

I bought the Tele for him when he was in the 8th or 9th grade (graduated college and married 5 years ago) and swapped the p'ups for a SD Hot Rail in the bridge and SD STR3 in the neck along with new electronics and cavity shielding. He played it in a little hard rock band he was in thru his college days, and it served him well.

Here's a coupla pics of it. Neither pic really shows it's color, which I believe to be Midnight Wine...kinda dark purplish.

The light blue color comes from the reflection of the sky


In this pic, which was taken inside without a flash, it appears to be nearly black...

Edd, might nice thing ya done. I've done the same. Let them kids ejoy it while your still able to hear them. Nice looking Strat and I bet that color looks great in real life to.

Besides, I hate trying to sell something like that cause someone's always wanting to beat you down trying to get it.
