Black Paisley Stratocaster® HSS

Posted by on December 8, 2012

This evening I was telling one of the band members that I was not in the market for buying a new guitar. I did not have any g.a.s.. I would not spend any money on new guitars or amps etc.

Well, so much for that. I was browsing the web a little bit and stumbled into a new Fender Guitar: the all new Black Paisley Stratocaster® HSS. Yes. a Black Paisley. As you all know by reading my blog, I am a great fan of this type of guitar. See this post.

Now, I fully realize that this guitar, which costs approximately 575,- Euro, is of lesser quality that my Japan built Black Paisley Richie Sambora Signature. But…. “musssssttt buyyyy guitarrrrr”… It is too nice and too good not to buy it.

So, I did order this guitar tonight… Yes.
