Today I stopped at a local auto shop to see a friend of mine. While talking to him I noticed a gig bag on another techs work bench. I went over to him and asked about his guitar. He said it was a Squire Strat and he wanted to sell it. I asked to look at it. Black with three single coils, no chips or scratches and a rosewood board. Just like new.
He asked if I was interested in it for $30.00. I thought why not. I can always try to swirl it. After changing the strings and a few adjustments, it plays pretty well. I am going to leave in my office and practice with during lunch.
