The Commuter Strat Scene

Caught this film over the weekend, and I was surprised to see a Strat making an appearance in one of the fight scenes.

Even more surprised that a Strat could be so deadly. The way Liam Neeson wields a Strat makes guys like Pete Townshend look gentle. ๐Ÿ™‚

See the scene and you’ll know what I’m saying.

In addition, 100 units will be signed by the man himself. I’d expect these to be the collectors’ items.

It’s been a fun two plus years making new friends and improving the guitars that came to me. I thank those who came by and trusted me with their precious guitars.

Off to spending more time with my loved ones and the much needed practice on guitars.
