I needed a HSS for something I’m doing band-wise and picked this up for a reasonable price. I appreciate the colour is a bit like marmite and HSS strats never look quite right to me but whatever. In absolutely great nick and perfectly set up, slightly heavier than I prefer but no biggie. I thought i’d like it, but it’s even better than I thought.

    Very nice congrats. The finger board looks like a honey color which goes great with Tangerine.

    Tangerine is a color that when I first heard of it I didn’t think I’d like it but I actually think it’s beautiful. At some angles it’s almost like a rich, red-gold.

    Not on this model, because of the roller nut. Strat headstocks look a little nude to me without a string tree. I like the silver logo though, would’ been even better with a silver ‘contour body’ logo too. Thank you for all the nice comments people, I gigged her last night and it sounded great.

    How does the roller nut work for you? Does it stay in tune and do you have proper sustain/tone?
