Ok I am back to finish the tale of my christmas guitar, when I left off I was telling you all how I hated that “thing” well, I grew to dig that thing after a while, It did have a nice brown panel-like finish and it kind of growled when I hit the strings hard, so it wasnt all that bad until, Metallica came along. I was minding my own business watching MTV one day when the Metallica “One” video came on…..And nothing was the same again!! I saw their lead guitarist Kirk Hammett, playing so gracefully and furiously on a strat, that I was converted right there!! I threw my guitar into a case and vowed to get myself a super-strat (he played a black one) Not long after that (on Christmas I bought myself a black Epiphone super-strat) My old guitar was banished to the basement and my super-strat was my new love!!I evently gave away my original guitar to a mover when I moved and I pawned my Epiphone when I got frustrated with the music business. I have since revived my love for music and the guitar and bought my white Strat,but I still miss my two Christmas guitars.

Hello, I hope every one is having a great holiday season, I am. I was just reminiscing about the first guitar I ever received. I got It on christmas day 1983. It was a one pickup lespaul copy, a Fingerhut special. It came with this crappy little amp. I blew out the speaker the third time I used it. The guitar needed a fret job in the worst way and the glued in neck started to come apart from the body. Man I hated that thing!!
