After five long months, Lenore has finally paid off her first full-scale guitar. It’s a nice one! This is a Vintage Modified Surf Stratocaster. She has needed a full-scale guitar for some time now. She put in three long years on the 3/4 size Squire Mini. It was a great little guitar to learn on, and I doubt she will ever part with it for sentimental reasons. That’s fine.
But it was time to move on to a larger instrument. When we went to the music shop, this one caught her eye immediately. It just screams cool! I think she was drawn to the vintage look first, but the whammy bar really closed the deal. Lenore loves the whammy!
It sounds good too. It has a great gritty/Blues sound to it, and think that has something to do with the Duncan Lipstick Pickups. Honestly, I didn’t know what those were when the sales guy mentioned them. After some research, I learned they are pretty nice. Whatever they are, the guitar sounds great. Here are some very short clips below of the new sound. Hope you enjoy!
