trash can strat

A co-worker at the post office found a guitar in a trash can a while back.

She gave it to me.

It was an old Ibanez copy of a stratocaster….a “Silver Series” guitar that, even though it was pretty beat up and covered with goofy stickers, was actually pretty cool.silver series

The guitar looked like this one.

Pretty great to find something like that in the trash.

I put new tuning gears on it….but the electronics are kind of messed up….so I think that I’ll probably buy a cheap “loaded” (with the pickups already installed) pickguard and put it on and see how it sounds.

Here’s a video about the pickguard…..should be pretty easy.

I get a lot of pleasure out of playing these “junk” guitars….not much to worry about with a guitar that you rescue from the trash….
