    Now I don't know what that word means, but I'm quite certain that I am in no way a Berk...
    Oh wait

    Welcome around! A Pro, eh? Love the colors on these! I'm looking forward to some pics (here's hoping it's Ocean Turquoise :) )

    Berks as Berkshire in the UK :)

    Its actually boring black with maple board. I have a 3ply black pickguard on the way too. I always loved the distinctive look of whole black strats with white pickups and neck to match

    I consider a black guitar to be due to an over enthusiastic spray monkey in the sunburst booth. :whistling: My black sunburst guitar sounds best too.

    LOL- welcome to the fun...

    I'm reading your post, and here is Pennsylvania, U.S.A., we have a city of "Reading" in "Berks" county. I thought...cool! A guy that's pretty close to me...

    WELL, I'm still thinking "cool" and certainly welcome! It's just we won't be getting together for a jam anytime soon :(

    Around here it's "Pics or it didn't happen"- not that we're not a trusting bunch- we just require "evidence" for our own pleasure...

    If all goes well I will be moving to west of England in January so I will be 100 miles closer to you. Still quite far, though ;)

    I should get her on Monday lunch time and once I give her a proper abuse I get the pictures up here.

    Thanks for the warmth
