    I got one of those around '86 in two-tone burst, and it was the best Strat I ever played. I actually bought it with insurance money from a previously stolen '75 Strat. I had it for about a year, and it was awesome. And then, yes, it was stolen. Fortunately, I have some stuff on tape, so I can remember what it sounds like. That thing played like butter.

    I got other Strats over the years, and I liked 'em all, but they just couldn't replace the one I lost. Then, I got an EJ in two-tone burst, and while it's a really different guitar, it finally made me let go of the past. Mostly.

    The Fullertons AVRI's are running about $3500. +/-! Depending on condition & p/u's! & the answer is, if you want one - that is what it will take. Which makes the Caronas more appealing especially an 86'!
    Again congrats! & Enjoy - that's just a great guitar!
