    Ok, I will. I owned one of those a little over a year ago. Great axe but I didn't get on with the feel of the neck on it! Ill keep my eyes open and add it to my feed.

    Thanks, I'd appreciate it. I noticed I missed one on Stratosphere a while back, but I have a Hot Rod 50's neck I'd love to pair up with that guit. The project I'm working on right now would be especially well-suited to the Sustainer.

    Beautiful guitar alright - but I'll never buy a guitar with a 7 1/4" radius, ever. Even though I started on one and used it for 30 years. No going back.

    I am not a fan of paisley anything.

    Sometimes someone makes something that might change my mind.

    Not only does that Strat change my mind, it is Absolutely Stunning, and I will confess, I have been GAS Bit now.

    Congratulations!!

    I've got two I'm keeping locked away, crazy as it sounds. No intention of playing them, may get a third to play, but I have enough Strats to play (83 Squier, 99 Am Standard, 2018 custom built Woody Phifer Strat) among other guitars. I got them along with Fender molded cases to surprise my brother and sister one day hopefully far in the future. Too pretty to play, pure investment which I never thought I'd ever do. One has truly NBP (never been played) while I strummed a few bar chords on the second before tucking it away (removed the plastic from guards, pickups, and back covers).

    Congrats, that guitar is sweet, definitely my style too. My ‘86 Contemporary has a basswood body, and nothing wrong with it, absolutely. Enjoy your new instrument.

    You can send your favorite Strat to Matt & Chris @ www.texastoastguitars.com and they can do an amazing fabric top paisley burst. That way it has everything you like, plus a paisley burst.

    One of the best I saw them do on a Strat was on an Yngwie Strat. It turned out absolutely beautiful! I'll go find a link to one of their vids when they made it and come back and post it.

    Edit: so it wasn't paisley. I thought it was. It still looks friggin great! They can do whatever fabric you want.

    I think this one would've been pretty badazz with a black burst
