Definitely not needing any more guitars and I freely admit to being more of PRS fan and don't play strats much these days, but this thing was sitting for sale locally for a ridiculous price. It sat for a while and I figured someone would grab it, but nope, so I had to snatch it. I figure it's around 2006ish if I recall correctly, but looks like it was never played. My first impressions are that this is a very well built guitar. Fit and finish are top shelf, neck is silky smooth with typical excellent fretwork. Wilky ez lok tuners are very solid, and I really like the 2 point bridge. The nut is graphite and is cut well, but I might tweak it ever so slightly. The pickups look to be the older variety alnico 5 nickel humbuckers with I really like. I'm not sure if I'll leave them in this guitar or change it out to a traditional strat setup. In all honesty, I would probably take this over most mim strats that I've played. I'm not sure if I want the black and tort combo, so if anyone has any great ideas for a different pickguard combo on a black strat, I'm curious.
