This is the other guitar I saw when I picked up the Sonic Blue ST57-TX two day ago. Not crazy about the poly candy apple red color, but, man this guitar has a “feel” to it I can not pin point. Light, instantly comfortable, effortless to play. As much as I love the Sonic Blue strat’s looks, I like this guitar’s sound, feel and vibe much better and I haven't even changed the rusty strings or cleaned her up yet. By serial number she is a 2018 built in January. Fender is killing it over here! The lightest alder guitar I have ever held. A little over $300 bucks with a very nice gig bag! Sorry for the low quality floor pic. I am going to get glamour shots of these 3 guitars I bought in Japan this year outside over looking the bay below the house. For now,... Meet “Tanabe”.... Supposed to go look at another shop a friend told me about, but this was my Xmas present and I’m done for while. Thank you honey!
