    Those have been available off and on for quite a while, it also came in a red finish. They also had the same finish on Tele's.

    I dunno -- it sorta looks like something that was done in a shop class.
    I doubt I'd pay significant money for it or hunt it down based on the finish.

    I wouldn't say I hate it, but not overly fond of it either.

    Wouldn't let in the bed without a clean bil of health from the clinic. I like the concept but it just doesn't work for me maybe cuz it's a strat and the color.

    its different for sure, but i like unique looks. i have a mini blaster i will use it next time i get a beat up guitar and try it out after seeing this, good way to turn a beat up guitar into something new.

    I've tried one. The feel of the body was a bit weird, slightly distracting. It does look cool from a few feet away.

    It's an interesting idea. I wouldn't buy one, but I certainly don't hate it.

    I’ve played one at a shop before and I remember liking the feel of the grain. But obviously not enough to buy one. :LOL:

    Never though of that. I guess I'd have to try one to see if I felt that

    Couldn't vote, because... while I don't hate it, I would never buy one for myself. It just does nothing for me.

    yeah, these have been around for a while. I first became aware of them a few years ago. I don't think they are currently in production. Anyway, I think the red ones look cool as hell. Of course I'd have to put a humbucker in the bridge for maximum coolness!
