    I just bought a Standard Strat, FSR about a week ago. It's my first Strat and I'm very excited about it. I'd played a variety of different Strats and this one spoke to me. And it was $100 off the regular price - that spoke to me too!

    So far I'm really enjoying it. The pickups are hotter than I'd expected (which is good). I'm considering replacing them with Tex-Mex someday, but I intend to play it as is for a couple of months before deciding anything.

    I've ordered a pickguard and pickup covers/knobs, however, to make it match my main Tele (see below). Should be a fun addition. This is my first Strat.

    Welcome to the forum,

    that Strat is a good starting point but you could have joined earlier without buying a Strat.
    We have crazy people on here enjoying Gibson and even white Flying Vs (guess what!).
    That guitar is a beauty and enjoy it as much as you can.

    Life is good,
    Robin

    Thanks all! I've really enjoyed it so far, though the bridge pickup needs some more attention - it's pretty harsh (says the Tele guy LOL). I'm a firm believer in playing with pickup heights before any other adjustments or changes, though, so we'll see how that goes. Got the cosmetics set up the way I like them and I'm really excited for the matched set.
