LMAO!!!! AHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!! LOL!!!!!
Man, that was a funny trip to the music store. I get there, and see the roadworn strat. It looked like someone took a Highway one (same mate look to the finish), then used a belt sander on the forearm rest, and some sport on the back, then rubbed it a few times with fine sandpaper. You could even see what looked like a burn mark from the sander on the forearm ''wear''. Then, it looks like they hit it with a screwdriver a few times. The bridge looked like it has been ''sprinkled'' with rust powder. And the pickguard looked like it had been rubbed on a few spots with brown shoe polish, then scratched with fine sandpaper. The neck didn't feel worn in, it just felt like it had been violated by a kid trying to make his guitar look old.
It was ridiculous.
I seriously, honestly, truly believe that anybody on this forum, given a highway 1 strat, could do a more convincing job. It was so horrible, that I started laughing with one of my friends, and some other people came to see what was funny, and started laughing also.
Fender, your roadworn guitars are a joke. If anyone wants a strat, take that kind of money and look at the G&L imports please, or just hit a highway 1.
