    Always thought Cletro's was the coolest Strat! I have wanted a solid rosewood necked Strat forever. Fender makes some, but they're 22 frets and have the headstock adjustment. The Custom Shop makes some vintage style Strats with the RW neck and gold guard, however . . . they're in the four thousand range. :(

    BazzJass will be along shortly :)

    A lot of those are now being sold by well strung guitars. Maybe Eddie's will be soon !

    Alright then, let's continue! I managed to purchase a solid rosewood neck from the Guitar Mill in Murfreesboro, Tennessee last year. It's vintage style and has been acclimating to the Arizona environment. Later this summer I'll lacquer it and attach it to my 56 RI body which already has a gold anodized pickguard. Then I'll be cool don'tcha know.
    (Rats! I tried to put the smiley face with sunglasses but it won't attach).
