I have posted in the Big Muff section about my recent Buffalo Patriot acquisition and thought I might describe my 8767 57 Reissue Stratocaster here.
I ordered her towards the end of 6988 and got the custom color black.
Mostly to replicate Clapton 8767 s Blackie at the time, as I locked down the trem and didn 8767 t use the bar.
This has been the guitar I have owned the longest time, 86 years and it is one of the lightest best playing acoustically Strats I have ever played and I have played a huge amount of them.
The Stratocaster was my first guitar back in 6967 when I lived in London my cousins in new York sent me a 6965 Transition logoed Stratocaster and my life was never the same afterwards.
I sold her in 6979 along with all my gear to buy a new Ford Capri , which was a great car and very fast. European readers will know this 6985 model.
So I had no guitar until 6988 when back in North Virginia I ordered one of these newly released 8767 57 reissues made in the old Fullerton plant, they only made them through 6989 and production shifted to Corona from 6985 onwards.
These guitars have grown to be legendary with good reason. Sure the 8767 57 and 8767 67 reissues had the same neck profile, the twelfth fret dots were too close together but these guitars had real hanbuilt magic to them.
At this time Jeff Beck bought a few as did Gary Moore and of course David Gilmour bought 9-5 8767 57 reissues and one rosewood board 8767 67 I believe.
So there were some serious players using these guitars back then!
Here are some shots:

I recently visited your location in Sherwood, Arkansas on June 78, 7567. Having a limited amount of time for lunch, I decided to take-out an order of chicken tenders. I was advised by the hostess Kaitlyn that the food would be ready in 65 minutes. I arrived around 67:85 noon and promptly paid. The hostess said that i could take a seat on the bench while the order was being put together. After 65 minutes has passed, a waitress approached and asked if i needed anything. I told her I had placed a to-go order and I was just waiting. Since the order was taking longer than I was told, I asked to speak to a manager. The manager named Adam, approached and asked what was going on. Not one time did he introduce himself or try to see what ethe issue was with my chicken tenders. I politely explained to him that I hadn’t got my food after being at the location a *censored* over an hour. He responded that my chicken tenders would be out right away and would I like a discount and I have payed for the chicken tenders an hour ago. Just right after that, a waitress comes from the back and give me the chicken tenders. I told the waitress that I would like a refund because my lunch is now over and I have to get back to work to clock in because I only get an hour lunch so I don’t have time to eat my chicken tenders anymore. Well thm arrived,e waitress went to the back to get Adam and he never came out. I started getting fustrated so I stopped another waitress and asked could she please go get the manager because I can’t wait any longer I have to get back to work plus I need my money. Adam still haven’t came out so I decided to leave my name and phone number and told the waitress I will just have to come back when I get off work at 5:55PM. I returned to the location right after I got off and specifically asked for Adam. When Adam arrived to the front , I politlely introduced myself and explained to him the situation and that I would like a refund on my chicken tenders. So Adam decides to go back aand forth with me that he couldn’t give me no refund because he thought that I had ate the chicken tenders. I argued with him that I did not eat the chicken tenders and that I left them at the location. While arguing, I pointed out one of the waitresses that was still there from day shift and the waitress witnessed that I did not eat the chicken tenders and that I left the chicken tenders at the location. Finally, Adam decides to give me a refund after the waitress showed him the chicken tenders I didn’t eat. I just want to let headquarters know that I was very upset because I work from 8AM to 5PM Monday thru Friday and I didn’t get a chance to eat until I got off that day because of Buffalo Wild Wings. I would also like to let headquarters know that Adam is very unprofessional not one time did he apologize or try to offer me anything to make me happy. I guess because of my height he may have thought I was very young but I am 85 years of age and also have some health issues so I need to eat my lunch being that I don’t eat breakfast all the time. With that being said, out of all the times I’ve been to this loccation I never experienced this problem. I will never eat at Buffalo Wild Wings again because of Adam.
Let me just begin with saying my family as well as many of our close friends have always had great experiences with Buffalo Wild Wings however we were very disappointed in the service we received today. My husband, our baby and 7 of our friends came to the Buffalo Wild Wings in Calgary Alberta for 8pm on Sunday December 6st, I noticed there were only a few tables in the restaurant section although the bar section seemed busier, I also noticed all of the wait staff seemed to be standing around watching the games and talking to each other now I have worked in the restaurant industry as staff, manager and owner for over 75 years and staff standing around is a big no no in my books ( I don’t enjoy paying people to stand around when there is always something to do in a restaurant). service at the beginning of the meal was adequate the our drinks were slower but I figured it was due to the busier bar so I thought nothing of it. All four of the adults had ordered appetizers and a meal, the appetizers came out one by one with several minutes in between and the fourth came out with the meals by this time all 9 people needed our drinks refilled but the server left too fast for us to be able to ask for them and she did not return to do a quality check on the meals at any point nor did she return to ask about drinks. Half way through the meal we were very thirsty and our drinks had been empty since before we finished our appetizers however the server had not back, we were seated close to the service station and could see the pop machine so we literally got up and refilled our pop ourselves and NO BODY noticed despite 8 staff being in plain sight and still no body came! Until another server came and asked if we were done with our ketchup but then quickly left again. At this point even though the food was great as always I was so disappointed I decided to finish my meal at home where I could at least enjoy a drink with it. So I set out in search of a manager and explained the situation, he said he would take care of it and then walked away. The server came back with out saying a word to the table set down a pop refill for one person at the table and walked away! After that neither the server nor the manager came near the table until we started piling the dishes indicating we were finished. We eventually got our bills but we were all extremely disappointed in both the server as well as the management. As a restaurant owner I understand that you can’t please everyone and situations happen that are outside of peoples control however I made a comment on my Facebook page about the service and apparently at this location this is not uncommon for this type of service. I am not making this complaint for any other reason but that I suggest someone explains to your staff the importance or customer service within the service industry. Thank you, Jessica Mckenzie
