    Limited solid ash natural age. Tortoise guard and cream controls. American professional with Elite case.
    Had a Squier Strat when I was like 19. Not since and I’m 44. This thing is sweet.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    That's the second time this week I've been drawn to a Strat! What's happening here?

    Congratulations! I'm a strat guy for 40+ year and I've always wanted a natural finish strat with a maple fretboard. But alas, looks are always secondary and anytime I've been in the market and have seriously looked at one with a natural finish, I always ended up finding something else I liked better for some reason or another related to playing or sound. So I've never owned one. An American Professional is a damn fine instrument, but I've already got a #1 and #2 strat and don't need another one. So this might be one of those long time wishes I never grant myself. But you got a nice one there.

    ENJOY!!!

    -Ray

    Thank you Ray. Ah sure is a beauty. I’ll take better pics eventually but she comes off almost butterscotch blonde. The tortoise and cream and mole really set it off.

    Beautiful.
    Has a great '70s vibe. A friend used to have a similar one with a gold anodized pickguard. Never could talk him out of it.
