Picked up this on Craigslist over the weekend. I always wanted a Surf Green Strat, but I already have a CIJ Strat ST-54 Reissue I love. This seemed like a great addition to the collection, gave me something really different and satisfied my wanting a Surf Green Fender...... Behold, the Courtney Love designed Squire Venus from the Vista Series of guitars. I love that it has a bound neck with a 12" radius. I can fingerstyle play just like on my acoustics with this one. Pretty different for Fender though with the TOM bridge, String through design and bound neck. Anyone else here have one of these beauties? In a way, it reminds me of a Tele with just the two pups. I kind of wish it had a tone control but in reality, my old Magnatone amp has a great tone adjustment that does everything I need with this guitar. Having this is making the wait for my Custom Nitro Daphne Blue Tele to be done a bit easier.
