    Looks beautiful to me. I would be happy if it were my "first".

    Congrats on your Fender. Now you can post a little more often than you have in the last four years.
    I bet it felt good to be able to finally afford a new Strat, enjoy to the fullest.

    Ahh, YOU caught me! Haha. I have been viewing these forums for a long time. Just absorbing the information because of my love of the strat design and the aforementioned squires. I didn't realize I had been a member for this long.

    Very nice! I really like that color with the flame top. I had a 2013 MIM Standard in the same color and top, and the pictures dont do it justice. Enjoy!

    I think the fretboard is nice. I have no problem with PF. It's just another option.

    I got my first "real" Fender Strat too just 2 weeks ago. American Ultra. A really fine instrument, I'm impressed.

    I player from 1959 to 1983 without ever getting a Strat. Then I heard Stewart Smith, and the ride began. Now I have a dozen, mostly AVRI and I'm a happy player.

    Sweet strat! My first guitar was also a B.C. Rich (very cheap mockingbird bronze series guitar) and my first legit strat only came about 16 years into my guitar journey. Enjoy it in good health!

    Great story, I’m happy for you.
    That’s a great looking guitar.
    As to the Pao Ferro fretboard, I never played one,
    but there once was a guy by the name of Stevie Ray that plied his craft on one,
