    When I stumbled upon it in a small music store that I visited on a whim while in a city far from home, I had no idea that it would be coming home with me...

    ...until I played it. At that point, there was no way that it wasn't coming with me.

    Me too Gary!!!! Ha ha!
    It's actually a 2013...they seem to have come a long way in 30+ years. It's got the Wizard neck which is lovely and an ebony fingerboard with a 15 inch radius. Factory fitted with Di Marzio's too. A real tone machine :D

    LOVE all black Strats with maple necks. Very classy!

    I should be getting a strat with a maple board in the mail tomorrow. Man, I can't wait. I haven't had a black Strat in almost a year now, and it had a rosewood board.

    Lol! there's nothing special to it, at least for anyone apart from me.

    It's a Highway 1 Telecaster, 2006 (jumbo frets) with a twisted tele on the neck position. Some very little spots where the paint has worn off... and some dings here and there... thats it. But when I put brand new 10s on it that thing speaks to me.

    I have no pictures of its current state... Ill take some to show here :)

    Yes I could but don't feel like it. If I could only have one it would be the -77 Stratocaster.

    If i had to pick only one...I would choose the Elite Strat and i could be happy. But i would miss the PRS and Les Paul.

    Yeah... I dont trust those heavy relics. They all look fake to me. I personally dont take really good care of my guitars in the sense of cleaning and such... and Ive had many. There is no way a guitar can become that ****ed up only by playing the thing... IMHO.

    just from playing? No.. but if you play with your goth spikes on it becomes more believable

    Yeah, and what about having a lot of forearm hair and living 300 years playing every night at the local pub without AC?
