I'm going to take a moment out of my usual posts about books, movies and writing to talk about another love of mine...guitars.
I've been taking guitar classes for over a year. I received my first guitar when I was 23. My husband at the time bought it for a Christmas present. It is a Lotus Electric guitar with a Strat body. I was taking classes at that time, but my son was young and there wasn't much time to pursue it. I still have the guitar and it works fine. And although it has a Strat body, it is not a Fender.
A Short Bio: The Fender Stratocaster, often referred to as "Strat", is a model of electric guitar designed by Leo Fender, George Fullerton, and Freddie Tavares in 1954, and manufactured continuously by the Fender Musical Instruments Corporation to the present. It is a double-cutaway guitar, with an extended top horn for balance while standing.
I had always wanted a Fender Strat, and still do. However, I saw another brand and tried it and fell in love with it. What brand is that? Come back tomorrow to find out. But for now look at all the pretty Fenders!
So if my arm was twisted and I HAD to buy a Fender, I'd get the glittery gold one. Oh boohoo....:)
