Pleasant surprise with my new Strat.

I've only been playing for about two months, so don't tease me.

But I bought a demo American Strat at a reduced price. The only mar on it was some gouges in the pick guard. No functional big deal.

But the gouges were right where I anchor my little finger and was getting on my nerves. It's not that the Strat was not perfect. It's just that they weren't "my" gouges.

So I started trying to smooth them out, somehow, and was about to buy a new pickguard. Then I noticed that the gouges would move around.

Long story/short: I peeled off the protective cover on the pickguard and the gouges disappeared.

Re: Pleasant surprise with my new Strat.

I think I have a major head slapper like that about once a month.

As long as you can laugh at yourself, it makes for a great little story.
A few years from now you can tell that story back stage at your sold out concerts
