I seem to have a thing for odd Fender Squire's. This is a guitar I bought at Guitar Center in 1999 on an ugly color discount. It's another odd ball being a Strat with two humbuckers. At the time I was making mostly electronic music, but wanted a cheap electric guitar as a studio beater. I didn't really know anything about guitars other than this one was cheap, $149 out the door.
Ironically this has turned out to be a pretty good guitar. I also bought a Vox Cambridge 15 practice amp at the same time. It too, and in use with this guitar are surprisingly fun to play. Today I keep these two in the house as my practice set-up.
