    Hey,
    I thought it would be a good idea to open a thread in which (everyone who wants to) you can post a picture of your Strat and tell us the story of it, the specs, what is special about it. I think there's a great story behind every instrument, and if not at least great specs or specialities.

    So this is mine:

    O.K.
    It's a custom built "Haar" Stratocaster made in Netherlands. I orderd it in August and recieved it in in December. The great thing about it, it looks great, it feels great and it sounds awsome! Actually I wanted a Fender CS Strat but as this one just costs the half I got me some other stuff :D
    The specs:
    Neck:
    -Flame Maple with Brazillian Rosewood Slapboard
    -Compund Radius (7.25"-10")
    -thick C shaped back
    Body:
    -Alder 2 pieces
    -3TSB
    -"medium" (seems to me like hardcore aged)aged
    Hardware:
    -Vintage Style tuners, tremolo
    -CTS Pots, CRL Switch
    -Van Zandt Blues Pickups

    The sound is undiscribable, really bluesy fat, but clear, really awsome.

    And the hompage:

    sounds like a cool guitar but I can't see it since you apperantly need to make an account with that hosting site.

    I'll post mine next week when I get it back from my friend who's using it.

    This is my MIJ 68 RI Strat. It has an ash body, I put on a white moto pickguard and trem cover, and slid in a set of CS Fat 50s pups.

    Nice 'bursts!

    Here's something a little different...

    [​IMG]

    It's a bone stock Squier Black & Chrome Strat...

    My wife took one look at that guitar strap and called me "juvenile"... But I like it...

    It started out as a Fat Strat and through multiple pidkup changes and mods, it now has master volume and master tone with a set of CS Fat 50's.

    Oh yeah, my Strat is just black/rw Am Std, nothing unusual except the cute neck plate.

    No stories to speak of; they're just really good Stratocasters. ;)
