    Lovely guitar. I have the Olympic white and black scratchplate Am Special with a Seymour Duncan pearly gates in the bridge. They’re amazing bang for your buck. Yours is gorgeous.

    I’m kicking around the idea of putting a humbucker in the bridge. None of my Strats are SSH so I’m curious to try it. I have a Pearly Gates set in a Les Paul and they’re great pickups. The bridge PG seems to be the most popular to add to Texas Specials. You don’t hear too many other recommendations.

    The more I look at this, the more I'm thinking this just might be my next Strat! ;)

    Again, congrats! :)

    It gets my recommendation. Other than only getting a gig bag, it’s on par with other US made fenders I’ve played. The neck is sweet, and this is one of the few new guitars I’ve played, American or not, that had perfect frets up and down the fretboard.

    I'm on the hunt for the exact same one...
    Or the classic players 60 version! What a beauty!

    Congrats. I LOVE the dark board in that color. Beautiful!

    American Specials are great guitars, i just got one to match my main Strat.

    But it is far from just a back up guitar, it's the slightly modified one on the left...
