OK, so this is one of those with the skinny strings..
I'm at work and my wife calls to say UPS just dropped off a box from Fender. Not big enough to be a guitar, she says. I haven't bought anything recently, so I'm certainly not expecting a guitar to show up. I had no idea what it could be. Well, I get home, and the box is definitely big enough to be a guitar! I'm intrigued and a little bit excited. Did I win something and forget about it? I opened it up, and then it all clicked: had beers in NYC a couple of weeks ago with an old friend who works for Heineken, and he had mentioned they did a run of guitars with Fender. So, he sent me one! How cool is that? I'm now the owner of a pretty cool Mexican Tele. Has the red star at the 12th fret. Maybe I'll turn it into a baritone.
