I have just bought my first guitar, to restart playing after 35 years. I went into my local store Guitar House in Uckfield, England with a view to purchasing something Strat-ish. He let me try out a dozen guitars with absolutely no pressure to buy. I say all this to reward him for such superb customer service. As a result, I have just bought a 5420T fairlane blue from there. I love it, it sounds so sweet never mind what you ask from it. It looks, feels and sounds like a guitar worth 2 or 3 times the price. I just need to get my 58 year old fingers working again to do justice to such a fine instrument !
