It's not a new guitar, nor is it new to me. I built in 2018, turned it into a thinline in 2019, and refinished it in 2020. This guitar and I have been through a lot in a short few years, but it's pink now and I love it. I've been digging the idea of a shell pink Strat for a long time but it was always hard to pull the trigger. No regrets.
