I'm a sucker for red Strats, and coudn't resist getting this one. I have a few E series strats and telecasters, but have wanted an ST72 for a long time. Though I see a fair number of these here in Japan, this is the first Torino Red example I have come across. According to the guy I got it from, it hasn't been played in 20-odd years. I put some strings on it, and it sounds good. But the frets need a good polishing, and the jack needs a good cleaning. Now all I need is an E serial Jazzmaster.
