2004 MIA Stratocaster. Bought new, and given to me as a gift by my Grandparents when I was 17.
and what about the '57 Twin?
That's a KILLER amp.
I'm disappointed with all the pictures that aren't there of everyone's geetars!
12 guitars, 5 of which being strats - 2 Actual Fenders, and 3...
When I put down the strat, I usually pick up this:
2001 Violin made by Harold Hayslett, complete with Gerald R. Knoll bow.
I would suggest getting the most expensive thing(s) you can afford at the time, and gradually work towards the less expensive things - things like...
My Main Strat is my "1961" homebrew.
USACG Body and Neck
100% nitro finish, unlike modern "thin skins" *cough cough*...

1. Neck - The necks on the MIAs tend to be...
Nope, can't take credit for that! Nice.
I wouldn't attempt it. Not on a poly neck. If you had a nitro neck it'd be tons easier
Yeah..first electric was an LP Junior special around...2002..I played it for a while, and then discovered Rory Gallagher...
3 strats, and a...
Geof, thank you for the kind words. The color is Sonic Blue, that was not clear coated. Occasionally on "rush jobs" Fender was known to...
