    Re: yegbert/50's classic

    Thanks!

    It's the stock white blonde, the same color Fender uses on the custom shop Mary Kaye Strat. So it's apparently the same color that was on the Strat she made famous in the early 50s.

    Mine being a MIM, its finish is polyester; the cs Mary Kaye Strat finish is described in the 2005 Frontline (p 22) as "thin, White Blonde nitrocellulose N.O.S.". I haven't found that (MK Strat) model in the new Fender online spread, but there's a great pic of it in that Frontline.

    There seems to be a touch of pink in the white blonde. It reminds me of the creamy skin of a very fair complexioned lady. I thought the fresh snow made a nice backdrop for it, but my amateur picture came out a bit dim.

    Here's a couple

    It's an old picture but they are still a couple of favorites. Have you ever noticed that the shape of the bottom half of a Strat is dang near identical to the bottom half of a Tele?

    The Paisley and Blue Flower both date from about '85. They are so similar to my '67 maple neck that I really can't tell the difference between them...with my eyes closed that is. Visually I have found it to be pretty easy to tell them apart.

    This is my first attempt at a parts-caster.

    Its got some Squier parts (pups, vol/tone pots, neck), A body and pickgaurd made by my son, a compensated vintage style saddle, and a 3 way selector from 'Caper'.

    Soon its gonna get a 1/4 pounder in the bridge!

    Stephen, looking good, I thought it had a Warmouth neck on it when I saw the back of it.
