In 1995, i bought a 1994 sunburst American made Fender Strat from Starving Musician in Santa Clara. It was beautiful and I loved it. It was my first quality electric guitar. Eventually, I learned that I much prefer humbucker equipped guitars. As the collection of guitars grew, I played the strat less and less. But, I've kept it all these years; playing it rarely. This morning I traded it (with some cash and a pedal) for 2012 PRS DGT goldtop. Not too long ago I acquired my first DGT, and it quickly became one of my favorites. Now I have two DGT goldtops. I can't get enough of those DGT guitars. They suit me well. I was conflicted about the trade. I had feelings of nostalgia for this old friend that had been with me for 22 years. I also was conflicted about the idea that I needed a strat as part of my collection. And I was conflicted about trading for a guitar that I already had. I played both of my DGTs today. They are both fantastic. I don't regret the trade at all.
