Fender Stratocaster USA

Fender_StratocasterWhen I bought this guitar it was with the idea in mind that this would become my ‘second’ guitar, only to be used for the specific Stratocaster sound.

But ever since I’ve played it in an allround coverband for several years, I’ve discovered why Stratocasters are such popular guitars: they’re so very versatile. Of course they’re perfect for certain specific styles, but actually you can play any other style in at least a reasonable fashion on it. The built quality is actually a bit less than that of my Ibanez, but the concept simply always works.

I bought this guitar as a second hand one around 1990, after it had been brought back to the store by someone who, allegedly, had bought it without consulting his wife first. I, at the time, fortunately didn’t need to consult with anyone when buying it.

At Stratcollector.com I found information that seems to suggest that this is a Torino Red American Standard from around 1987, just after Fender had become independent of CBS again. Also, its serial number starts with EE, which is a bit special, meaning it was specifically meant for export. I replaced the tuning machines with Sperzel locking machines and the standard white pick guard by a pearloid one.

Very high energy, fast heavy metal tune. Walls of guitar chords, fast guitar riffs and some additional keyboard chords in the middle. While writing it I pictured a hectic car chase, but of course it could be used for any situation or action scene in a movie or game in which you’d want to create a mood of speed, energy and power.
