    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,...

    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!

    Where did you find one that cheap?

    Are those mythical deals still out there?

    Edit: oh! I just actually READ you bought it in Japan

    Hi.

    Well, I live in Japan, and I can attest to the fact that these are still seriously good scores. Nicely done. If it wasn’t for the fact I’m sporting a couple of similar scores, I’d be tre jealous. My last one took three years to find, mind.
