    Well, after buying and selling strats for the last few years trying to find one that worked, and putting together an MJT, my search continued until this came up for a very reasonable price this morning. Not a blemish or ding on her, pretty good for an ‘04.

    Seller was located about two hours away but I messaged him an offer and he accepted right away. Also let me know he was coming into town 15 minutes from where I was all morning.

    While texting before meet up he let me know the exterior of case was in rough shape (some tarnish on the latches) and guitar hadn’t been touched in 10 years, and would need new strings so he took off $200 before I could respond it wasn’t a big deal for the price he had already accepted.

    All said and done I got this for an absolute steal, could be haunted or something, who knows.

    Sounded fantastic through my Phaez AC30, tomorrow will be with my Jube combo and 68 Deluxe.

    I dunno if my search for the right strat is over yet but so far so good.

    That’s a beauty. I know you’ll love it. My #1 and #2 are Stratocasters. A good Stratocaster coming your way is a life changing event.

    Congratulations. I have one of those. IMG_20200810_112400.jpg
    I, for one, love the ten pickup combinations as well as the SCN pickups. Had mine for 17 years.
    Not for sale.

    Beautiful guitar. I have the rosewood board version. The original case was long gone when I bought mine. I always wanted to buy the case but never wanted cough up what they wanted for them.
