Hi, new to this forum. Not new to Strats. Over the years I've had a '57 sunburst, '61 Sonic Blue, '63 faded Fiesta Red, 1971 Oly White (with mega flamed neck). All long gone now, but the memories remain! Went a few years Strat-free, while I indulged other guitars with my time and money. Now play a 54 partscaster and I'm about to receive a custom '54 job with an all-rosewood neck. A little bit like the Eddie Cletro '57.
