    So a friend of mine recently bought a Stratocaster from an old guy in town. The old guy couldn't remember when he'd bought it, but was pleased as punch to get $1000.00 for it. My friend didn't know much about it either, but got to poking around and asking a few folks who know more and discovered it was a nearly unused 1961 Strat--all original and little wear. I haven't seen it yet but of course am jealous. My friend barely even plays electric--he's mostly a solo acoustic strummer guy playing classic country covers. Some guys have all the luck....

    Oh my... That's what I call being at the right place at the right time... Maybe you should try buying it from him, offer him $ 1500 or something. Of course you should tell it was a good deal and this is a vintage axe, just don't tell that it costs 20k hehhehe...

    Life is uncertain. Off it and buy a brand new RI or whatever floats his boat. Invest the leftover 20 grand.
