Picked this up in trade and really glad a did. I was on the fence because it looks great but still boring in a way, well at least to me. I’m also always after a fat neck. The huge plus for me was the colour and the Abby red hots, I just love a little hotter Strat pickup. So it’s basically a 65 Strat with a bound neck, which was a factory option way back in 65. This was made in 2011 for the 2012 NAMM show. This colour only and I think very limited numbers produced. Ok so boring, maybe not so much now after holding it in my hands. The is also pretty beefy being a 65 C shape I though a typical 60’s oval but it’s large. I think this will be my new favourite for awhile. The pickups just sound incredible. It’s also so clean for a 2011 closest classic series. Zero fret wear at all. The last few pics you can see the fretboard has been oiled, she was pretty dry. Also trimmed and shapes the fret binding nibs.
