    I got a great deal with this on ebay a couple of months ago. Perfect condition, and professionally set up. The vibrato has a nice amount of play in it. I was considering selling it, as my Tele works a little better with fuzz and overdrive, and I don't really need two guitars, but I'm so glad I held onto it. I love this thing now.

    The mint green - sonic blue combo doesn't look so contrasted in the flesh either. Photobucket likes to lower my image resolution for some reason.

    Such a great Strat all round. I have no need to replace anything, and the only thing I might consider adding to it is a Jensen Capacitor (if one would fit). I had one installed in my tele and they're more useful than I thought. Roll back the tone and play with some drive and it's got a touch of a 'parked wah' kind of sound. Don't know if that would work with the Strat.

    :cool:

    Love my 60s CP Strat as well. Pop off your pick guard. See if your CS69's have AY's initials on 'em ;)

    These are definitely nice strats. I've got one in sunburst and it is beeyootyful....I really like the sonic blue too. I took mine to a local luthier and had a pro setup done. He leveled and dressed the frets and got a nice low action on it. I had to raise it a bit, just so I can "dig in" a little more, but it's nice and smooth playing...it's a dream to play actually. I'm having some trouble with the middle pickup at the moment, but hopefully I'll solve that problem soon. Anyway, they're some seriously nice guitars.

    Big fan as well. Really love the CS69 pups. Most likely the last strat I'll ever buy.

    I got one yesterday on a trade. Thought I'd never get another strat but I'm lovin' this thing.
