Word from Flint, Michigan USA

Recommended Posts

Hey everybody! I'm a self-taught mandolinist/guitarist from Flint, Michigan. I play pop, rock, and blues. My two absolute babies out of my collection of instruments are my 2003 Gibson Melody Maker (a custom build in progress) and my 1954 Guild Aristocrat (first model year, all original, and a family heirloom). My first instrument is mandolin and currently I play a 2014 Fender Mando-Strat 8. However, after talking to Fender customer service, I will NEVER buy an instrument from them again. Just a little about me. Nice to meet you all.

WOW, you must have had a really bad experience with Fender CS?! [scared][confused]

Sorry, to hear that. Seems to be an affliction, in too many companies, these days.

SAD!!

 

Anyway, welcome to the "nuthouse," and hope you enjoy your stay/experiences, here. [thumbup][biggrin]

Yeah, a couple phone calls and emails later, I want nothing to do with them. It doesn't bother me though, bolt on necks feel cheap anyways. Lol

 

 

Well, to each his/her own. I have a 1964 L series Fender Strat, that I got (new) on my 14th birthday,

and I (still) LOVE it, 53 years later! But, I love my many Gibson's, too! [thumbup][biggrin]

Welcome, and I am sorry to hear about your experience with Fender, it's disappointing for you to spend a lot of money on a musical instrument, only for it to let you down.

 

And well done on being able to teach yourself guitar, I wish I had the talent, I had to take a s*#t load of lessons before I could progress on the guitar.

Thank you! I had to play until my fingers split open, finally get calluses, then play until my calluses fell off! Hahaha I'm a man with a lot of free time

Welcome to the forum and I have tons of free time too and love it! msp_flapper.gif Folks ask me how being retired feels like and I tell them just like Ground Hog Day. Each day feels the same and you can do whatever you want to do! Sorry to hear about your problem with Fender. I have 2 Les Paul's and 2 Fenders. The Fender I love is a vintage modified Jaguar in Squire with vibrato arm. Works great with the surf songs I play.

I played one of the vm jags, the squire line has gotten A LOT better the past few years. I was so happy wwith the way it played, it made me want to buy one of those squire 6 string basses for whatever reason haha
