Bought a 2010 fender American Standard strat for $550 today. I feel like it was a steal as they usually sell for like 800 on Craigslist in my area. Guitar didn't have a case or a trem arm but seems to be in really good shape. The stock pickups sound amazing. I was really turned off of Strats for a while because I hated the pickups in my highway one and sold it to buy a telecaster but I love the sound of this strat. It has a maple fretboard and is three color sunburst which matches my tele. I'll try to get some pictures up because this thing is a beaut and a steal. I'm thinking tortoise shell Pick guard though any opinions?
