    I was finally able to purchase and American professional Fender Strat and I couldn't be happier with it! I went with the Olympic white and maple fretboard SSS config :) 53480605_1726963560739105_4206056924602433536_n.jpg

    Classic combo. Congratulations. I'm sure you won't be disappointed (even though I have yet to land an American Professional).

    LOL I definitely thought about it! I love the look of gold anodized guards on the white but i'm also loving the classic look with the white guard. I'll give it a while before I make some changes I think :)

    Tortoise shell looks cool on white too or some shade of mint green

    Thanks! Yeah I need a good fuzz lol I also picked up the Boss katana 100 watt combo with the guitar so i'm getting to know how this amp works now. Been playing around with the settings a lot and I hear they take pedals good too. Still have not got to mess around with the tone studio app much

    Congrats on the new guitar! It looks great just the way it is. Wait a few year before you mess with it.

    Thanks! I agree I should wait a long time before I start making changes lol I love how good the white looks with the maple fretboard and it's just such a classic look.

    I also got a $200 plek setup on the guitar so it is hands down the best guitar I have ever played! The neck profile is perfect for me and bending notes is a dream :D

    Ty, it was actually my wife's suggestion that I finally get the Fender strat that I have wanted lol She encourages starting a guitar collection which is amazing but I always feel bad spending too much on myself. Maybe I'll get a Tele next! lol
