***Secret FSR Fender guitars? Yes, they exist, and they're right here

On going 100% Stratocaster

image

It's been a very long time since I've done this.

As of now, I only own 3 guitars, all Strats. A busted '93 USA Fender, my '89 Squier II (first guitar) that needs some work done to it, and now the 2019 Squier Classic Vibe '50s. This guitar needs nothing since it's new. In other words, the new one is my main guitar.

The last time I had only Strats and nothing else was most likely when I was a teenager. Probably when I only had the '89 Squier and '93 Fender.

Aside from my very early days of guitar playing, I always had guitars other than Strats whether they were played regularly or not. But now I've gone full 100% Stratocaster.

Am I okay with this? Yes.

Do I feel I'm missing out by not having something else? No. And the reason I can answer with a no is because over the years I've owned almost every guitar type that I wanted to try. Strat is what I came back to and I'm okay with this. But that doesn't mean my guitar journey has stopped. There are still a few types of electrics I want to try out.

Rather than list off all the stuff I've owned, I'll instead talk about what I've not owned yet and whether I'll ever get them or not.
