I brought my Fender Stratocaster up from the cellar this morning. I cleaned everything out of the case (except for the whammy bar and a couple of strap locks that were there when I bought the guitar six years ago). I plugged it into the little Bassbreaker and made sure everything worked. The volume pot is a touch on the scratchy side, other than that it’s top notch.
Then I put it back in the case and leaned it against the wall and left it there. I was going to take it to Guitar Center tonight after work to see how much they would give me for a trade in. I paid $700. Strangely, $700 is about the retail price for a Vox AC15 amplifier. Weird how that works out, eh? I know Guitar Center has a reputation for being stingy about trades and if they offer anything less than $700 I’ll take it somewhere else. Maybe ebay. Maybe reverb. I’m not taking a loss on this baby. No way.
I’m not doing any of that tonight though. I’ll take a look at the world situation on Saturday and see how things look. This is the very definition of non-essential. It can wait.
