So yea, like I said, its been a long time since I've been active here, but it's good to be back around. Anyways, I picked up my first American Strat today! It's a 2019 American Professional Limited with the Rosewood neck. I have to say the figuring on the neck is stunning in person. I hadn't played an American Strat since the American Standards went out of production, and this thing just rocks. It's brighter than I expected with that neck. And I keep mentioning that neck, but the rosewood just feels so great. Again, it's something I've never felt before, but it just feels so slick. I've gotten some interesting guitars over the last few years, an old 60s Japanese Import, a EVH Wolfgang, and a beautiful Les Paul, but I have to say, it feels great to be jamming out on a Strat again!
