Sweet Strat Plus!

I grew up in Owen Sound & bought my first guitar (‘73 Mustang) from Dave Fromager after he sold the store to the other Dave (I forget his last name but Larry Jensen worked there along with Tim Cameron before he moved to Tranna). I then bought my second & third guitars (a black/RW Squier Strat & ‘80 LP Custom that I wish I still had) at the store. How long have you lived in the Sound?

I guy I played with in the 90's had what he called a "Mustard" strat like that. He played rock for fun and country and western for money with that guitar. He had a Carvin amp that he used, wanna say x100?

I remember seeing Kim Mitchell playing a Graffiti Yellow strat at a concert years ago.

Notably, he would often hold the guitar over his head (by the headstock and opposite end of the body) and shake it just enough to get a long slow vibrato.

Ah, Kim Mitchell....

Love that colour. Tried to get a jaguar body in this colour from mjt but it was Monaco yellow. Plus they fudged the measurements on the post holes. Thanks MJT.

congrats, I’m jealous
