I kinda felt sad reading that. It has absolutely no value outside of being anything but a family heirloom. If my grandfather built that guitar I'd probably think it was cool that he did, and a nice window to his mind in the 60s, and I'd want to hang on to it for the memories even it's completely garbage.

So either he's that hard up or he really just doesn't care about it.

This. It should at least have some sentimental value to him, I thought. To him, it should be more than just valueless wood with a nice pickup...

I just cracked up at that. Oh man, I hope he finds someone to buy it, cause I sure as hell wouldn't. It says someone already has it in their cart, I wonder if he has it in his own cart, trying to artificially inflate the demand/make it look like someone is gonna buy it from under you...

I mean, it's also not impossible that the story is just false to get more money out of a woodshop project. It seems like it might be genuine, but online, you never know.

Never has a guitar brought me so much laughter. I thought about your statement about the guitar reaching for a hug. Then I thought what if some of my favorite artists rocked this and I thought about the live performance....Jeez what a great guitar. I give it two thumbs up

Yeah, I was thinking that it’s a cutdown job I’ve seen in a few Strats before. I, however, find Strats attractive in their natural state.

If a Strat doesn't feel comfortable, no guitar will.
If you want some "edge", get a Telecaster... ;)
