    A pat on the back for me for spotting that. ;) You're rather lucky to have one of those to have made it all the way there. They were a last year FSR. Usually like 200 to 350 made in a run like that.

    It was quite a stroke of luck find and a to-die-for colour.

    When I was doing my pre-purchase research, the customer support rep @ fender usa asked me 'are you sure that's the serial number?' I confirmed with obligatory pics etc. and requested confirmation all was good with it.

    He sent me the build sheet confirming everything and suggested I was barking mad if I did not buy that guitar for the asking price. So I did :D

    I have had more than my share of strats and s-types and all of them have been moved on after a short time. This one is going absolutely nowhere. All the superlatives you can think of? yep in this guitar. Sound, feel, resonance - it's all there. God was smiling on me that day. I get to smile back every time I walk into the room.

    And when my hands are cramped and swollen with arthritis, it is the only guitar I can play.

    @JB74 The first time I saw that color was on one of these. Sonic blue is okay, Surf green is alright, Daphne blue, acceptable. But TT, is grrrreat. :thumb:

    The '57 bel-air colours remind me of central America - from Belize to Bogotá

    I haven't visited Bodean's Lounge in a while, so I guess it's time to contribute!

    Thanks for stopping in brother. I hate to cut a brother off, but after viewing that video, I think it's best for our safety.:D

    Technicolor and Kodachrome all wrapped up in one... An I do dream in color. Maybe Circles can hook me up to a VR experience like that... or some absinthe before it was banned.
