Ok, so the guys from work decide to throw a belated xmas party, due to everyone working all over the holidays. most of the guys have had some beers, and one suggests that everyone come back to his place to keep drinking. one of the young guys says "cool, i'll grab my guitar - and hey, pete, why not grab ur bass and we can jam" so i think, ok, go home and grab my stuff and head over to the party house. anyway, when the young guy arrives, i'm knocked out when he pulls out a LEFTY Fender Strat MIA (he's only about 19). anyway, he proceeds to tell me that he can't play anything, tunes it to whatever sounds good to his ears, and then decides he wants to go into town - leaving his strat at the house of a guy he barely knows. im even more amazed when I pick up his strat, only to find that the neck is bowed, the action has been lowered so far that it sits on the frets and the guitar is totally out of tune. Next time I saw him i asked if he wanted to sell me his strat, not because i like strats but because i couldn't bear to think how this instrument was being treated. anyone else have any experiences where they came across an instrument that was just crying out to be saved?
