The G+L is Leo's updating of his Stratocaster, VERY GOOD guitar, it's a keeper.

Enjoy the h@!! out of it.

BTW, welcome!

I am in as much shock as you all are. I have a Vox AD30VT amp and this axe sounds great. I don't have any pedal or know what pedals to get but, my first purchase in awhile might be a new amp to see if I can get the full potential on this guitar. It plays sooo smooth. I never played a MIA strat and wondering how this compares. I know the guy was moving into another apartment complex, but the reason why he gave me this with no explanation is news to me. I feel like I just won the lottery.

Are you 100% sure he wasn't just loaning it to you? Kind of a "here, try this out as I don't play often, and I'll come back to get it later" thing?

Update, I just ran into him tonight. He no longer plays it and his wife cannot stand him playing the guitar. His wife tried throwing it out earlier in the day. It is mine to keep and wants nothing in return.

Greg, you are acquainted with the concept of "paying it forward", right? Somewhere down the line, you will make a similarly magnanimous gesture.... :twisted:

Seriously, congratulations. You will never forget this stroke of good fortune.

It doesn't take a crystal ball to see that the guy who gave this away is going to be kicking himself in the donkey about ten or twenty years hence, when he will sell his soul on ebay to get another of the same model.

Greg, you should "disappear", and soon. New name, new address, grow a beard....before the guy wakes up and realizes what he has done. :?

I don't want to be a downer, but something doesn't make sense. What's this guys state of mind? Leaving large tips for bartenders/wait staff and giving away personal valuables has been associated with suicidal behavior. Any chance this guy is depressed and calling our for help?
