    Got my Strat Pack ready for today. How 'bout you? Let's see your Straturday families.

    L: One of my partscaster builds in Metallic Sage loaded with a trio of Guitar Madness p90 goodness.
    R: 2003 70's Fender Stratocaster. Once a Burgundy Mist body, stripped and refinished in nitro shell pink. Elysian Trident HB in the bridge.

    R: 60th Anniversary Fender American Standard Stratocaster (Goldie - my number 1).

    L: Originally a 2018 Classic 50's MIM Strat. Body hand painted as a Clapton "Crash" replica.
    R: One of my partcaster builds with an Affinity body and a Squier neck from @Papa Joe. My only guitar setup solely for slide in open E tuning.

    yes...blacking one out & Alnico 5 pups. I put the Nighhawk in there cause..position 3 is so stratty in recording..we use it for some jangly stuff..very cool with 12 radius. But my JV with Tex mex is the one for me,its all things fender strat,,just classic, The japan RG with the V pickups is very traditional strat sounding then can go super strat from about 7 on ..its hot...

    Happy Straturday!

    Went to the local pawn shop this morning. I didn't need another guitar. Checked out an '82 Strat, three MIM Strats and a MIJ strat. Must.... resist..... !!!

    I put the 1994-95 MIJ Strat on layaway. It has some chips in the paint but has great frets. It just oozed quality and mojo. As soon as I scrape up another $125, I can bring it home.

    It will go together nicely with my black MIJ Strat...

    Thanks! I'm pretty fond of it, too. Great artwork by whoever did it, and it plays, sounds incredible.

    I only have my 2010 American Standard now, but what a guitar! Tricked out with official black parts and still sporting the original pickups — they’re great. It doesn’t get played as much as my Jag and JM but I doubt I will ever part with it. Got it ex-demo without a scratch for £650, too. Bargain!

    Very nice collection Treynor.

    Great collection of strats you've got there.

    LOVE your Jeff Beck.

    That's a killer top notch guitar right there.

    I FINALLY get to go see Jeff Beck live in San Antonio on Sept. 23 w/ my son.

    That's going to be an amazing night with one of the all time master's of the Fender Strat

    Thanks! The JB is my second fave of my Strats. I absolutely love the thick neck on it.

    Enjoy JB in concert. I saw him once in Cincinnati about 10 years ago and it was an amazing show.

    I’ve got 3 Strats and I’ve always got my eyes open for another. I think when I come across a Classic Player 50’s, I’ll make it mine. Until then I’m more than happy with what I have. Black 94 MIM Squier Series, 2010 3 tone sunburst with rosewood board Classic Player 60’s and 2013 2 tone sunburst Eric Johnson Strat.

    I am a lefty, so yes - it is the only one that feels different since I have been playing upside down strats since day 1 - that lefty makes me have to think - reaching down to tune, and turning myself down instead of up - it has a right hand neck pickup (American Pro) and dual rails in mid and bridge....I get a nice variety of sounds from it.

    After years of buying all kinds Strats from MIM to Custom Shop models and eventually selling or trading them on I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m not really a Strat kind of guy. Right now I have just these two.

    My CIJ Paisley Strat

    IMG_20190814_161918540.jpg My only Strat is a Partscaster that I pieced together. Has a Warmoth body painted with cheap Rust-Oleum Gloss White lacquer rattle-can paint. Neck is a Fender Classic Player '60s that I like a lot. Pickups are Fender Tex Mex, and I couldn't be happier with any other pickups. I love the way this guitar sounds when I'm having a "Good Guitar Playing Day"......
