Mac DeMarco’s 1974 Fender Stratocaster

Mac DeMarco purchased this guitar in Cleveland, sometime in mid to late 2019. He intended it as a replacement for his cherished 1970 Strat, and he planned on using it for a while until he get used to it.

Got this in Cleveland the other day, I think it’s ’74. The one that I loved that I destroyed was a ’70 (model), and there was something about it.

(This one) feels pretty good. It doesn’t feel as good as the other one, but maybe if I got to play it for a longer while, it’ll get to know me.

But, based on this post on Reddit, it seems like Mac didn’t get to play the guitar for much longer, as he ended up destroying it on November 21, 2019, and gave the destroyed parts to random people from the audience.
