    Hey all,

    First post, but have been lurking on these forums for a long time, so decided to finally sign up lol. Thought you all would appreciate my most recent guitar purchase. Ordered it from Fender's Mod Shop on 12/26 and it arrived today, so it took about 4 weeks from placing the order until it arrived at my door, which seems reasonable to me.

    Awesome! I didn’t know they did painted headstocks (I don’t think they do in the UK). Looks great.

    Wow, that is a beauty! Love the painted headstock paired with the black guard. Perfect combination with the Sherwood green. If it plays anywhere as good as it looks, you should be very pleased. Enjoy, and welcome to TDPRI. EDIT: And the rosewood board is perfect!

    I love the body color, not crazy about the black peghead but it's not bad. Enjoy , cool axe, hardtail Strats have a different vibe than the trem bridge models IME.

    THAT IS A REALLY BEAUTIFUL, DARE I SAY IT, STRATOCASTER, I like a hard tail,
    thank goodness it has six saddles, some folks really go for those three saddle jobs ,
    which is , O.K. ... I guess.

    so here you are out of the shadows , not lurking, welcome to the site non-lurker, We are generally a great bunch, generous with our collective knowledge, kindly and very patient when it comes to well anyway. Not that it is an issue around here, some very funny folks crackin' wise and making terrible puns. So hang out , and come along for the ride, speaking of which.

    Awesome new axe. I have wondered how the mod shop actually works. Nice!
