    I'm new to strat-talk. Here's my player-series Stratocaster, bought about a week ago. I've been playing guitar about 25 years, last ten years have been a bit on and off, I'm also interested in synthesizers and that stuff, but after all I feel it's the guitar that i can express myself more easily. The other guitar I have is Epiphone ES-335 but this one feels really step up from that. The guitar's colour wasn't what i expected it to be, while i was sure that i would get the arctic white, but it looked bit too white in my local music shop at fmusiikki.fi, if anyone interested (long running finnish instrument store). I Was looking for professional series olympic white stratocaster or candy apple red, but then the reality kicked in. I have a toddler at home, so i have to settle with this one and learn a little bit more. And it will be his first full scale electric guitar (if guitar is what he likes to play i have alternative suggestions for him like saxophone or drums, if guitar isn't his thing;) )

    Congrats and welcome to ST. Stick around and have fun. There are always lots of things to learn in all areas of the instrument and many very knowledgeable people here.

    Seems that you made a wise choice both with your new guitar and joining up here.
    Welcome.
    Now you have a couple of great electrics to play.
    Curious as to what amp you use, too.

    Very pretty - thanks for posting the pic.
    What color is that Strat?

    It's a little bit funny. I have an Orange AD30TC at my rehearsal room, at home I'm using line6pod 2.0 as silent practice tool.

    I think the colour of the guitar is Capri Orange.

    You know I wouldn't have thought I would like a orange Strat but now that I see yours, all I can say is that really is a beautiful guitar. Welcome to strat talk there is some really nice people on here and some really smart folks also. I enjoyed the picture and hope you have a great time with your new guitar. If you ever go to sale it advertise in Tennessee they will pay double for a orange Strat . Thanks

    Every guitar I ever have owned haven't been the one's I've seen online or in advertisement...
    I haven't yet visited USA, but someday I will. One of my friend moved to live there. I Probably would go crazy and spend all my credit on first pawn shop on my way... and I'm quite poor ;D

    And the winters around here are so dark, it's nice to have some colours around you.
