    I bought a JM strat yesterday as you can see in the video! But didn't feel like spending 2500 bucks on a new one. Cus that's how much they cost if you buy them off thomann.de which is the cheapest guitar store in europe basically. Anyways I saw this ad here on a swedish site that said "Stratocaster with synchronized tremolo" I was like, hmm that looks like a JM Strat to me! So I asked the guy if he could send me photo on the back of the guitar...sure enough the JM sig was there First he asked for 1850 dollars for it, but nobody replied to his ad for a couple of days so he sold it to me for 1250! Which is a ******* steal I think! Didnt come with the nice soft case thou, but thats ok! He could easily have gotten so much more money for this guitar if he knew what the heck it was..it still had the plastic on over the pickguard..anyways im super happy and here is a video of some playing. 4 years of guitar playing!

    Thank you so much! It's a tweed fender pro junior from the 90s sometime. With a holy grail reverb pedal :)
