    Well, I went ahead and bought the limited addition american lite ash strat. It is the lightest stratocaster I have ever held in my hand. It is a 2019 and doesn't look like it has ever been played.
    It has the David Gilmour "black strat" loaded pickguard.
    Man, this strat sounds phenomenal! That's what sold me on this guitar....the tone. I looked at several. Some really pretty ones and some great playing ones, but this lite ash strat with the gilmour electronics mopped the floor with all of them on tone.
    Not even close.
    I love this guitar. I realized that it was going to break my heart if someone else bought it so I bought it. It is definately a keeper. rps20210329_201651.jpg rps20210329_201751.jpg rps20210329_202057.jpg rps20210329_201905.jpg rps20210329_202004.jpg rps20210329_202032.jpg rps20210329_201839.jpg

    Wow, congrats to you! This guitar looks the seventies! I knew a guy in college (90s) who had a guitar that looked somewhat similar.

    Ooh, that is sweet. It reminds me of my Buddy Guy strat . I love blonde finishes of different hues. Enjoy!

    Yeah, I think the blonde hue on it is killer!
