  • The Burning White Stratocaster...

    I got this guitar off some British dude living in Toronto. It's a Partscaster with a Squier body and a Fender neck. Brass nut and a Seymour Duncan SSL-3 Alnico V in the bridge position I put in myself. The neck is birds-eye maple and the fretboard has a nice wear to it. The guitar had a little fire accident by the bridge. But as Bob Ross would say "It's a happy accident".

      There has to be a good story here...how does a guitar have a 'fire accident', and not burn up the whole guitar?

          It was a little campfire incident that was quickly extinguished from what the guy told me. I've had a similar incident but with a bullet proof case I have from my classical guitar. It didn't catch on fire but the intense heat deformed the case a bit but it still opens and closes without no problems.

            This is the type of relicing I can get on board with.

              That is a better story than 'I bought it from a guy who thought Hendrix was cool'.

                I'd rock any guitar that was birthed from a guy willing to jam an electric around a campfire.

                  Just tell people it used to be Hendrix's . -thus the fire damage

                      Freaking gorgeous maple in that neck!

                      When you've had budget guitars for a number of years, you may find that your old instrument is holding you back. A quality guitar can inspire you to write great songs, improve your understanding of the Gdim chord while in the Lydian Mode, cure the heartbreak of cystic acne--and help you find true love in the process.

                        A guitar catches fire, you just throw the rest of your beer on it. Easy Peazy.....

                          Come to think of it I believe the guy did use beer to put out the fire...there's always alcohol at campfires.

                              Nice for the price I'm sure! Definitely a homemade relic though. By the look of it, none of the wear or the fire were by accident or from heavy use.
