    That model/color combination is the EXACT one I'm referring to Gridlock :)

    I think that it looks pretty classy and it may have the best neck of any guitar that I’ve owned.

    I got really lucky with this guitar having the very dark Rosewood neck after buying it sight-unseen online.

    Damn Doug, now you're making me think just a little (just a little, mind you :) ) about a maple fretboard :)

    BTW guys, once I decide, does that mean I will then have to learn how to play better, or can I put that off until I decide what pickguard or pickups I like best? :) :) :)

    You OBVIOUSLY haven't figured ME out yet rafasounds :)


    I'm one who thinks a different pickguard or better pickups is all that's standing between me and greatness :)

    I don't
    think that "Hundrix" kid really liked the Oly white, because he was always trying to set it on fire.

    Is that why the fretboard on his various Olympic White guitars looks so much darker than light maple sometimes? :)

    Damn, if that's you circles, the various Guitar Manufacturers need to hire you as a Male Guitar Model :)


    You (and even the guitar) look GREAT, and I mean that sincerely (I'm jealous, btw :) )!

    I used to be rosewood exclusively, but now I love rosewood, maple, and ebony equally.

    CAR+RW.

    White is just white, all white strats are white strats. Dont get me wrong they are gorgeous some of them but only when u take a good look you can tell them apart from the other ones.

    Candy Apple Red on the other hand... looks more like a thing you wanna wear on stage to me. The metal in the color does nice things with stage lights too.

    Olympic White w/ maple FB, or
    CAR w/ rosewood.

    Actually, I'm partial to Arctic rather than Olympic white.

    I honestly despise both lol

    Red just reminds me of squiers, and white I find corny, they have that lame yngwie and hendrix vibe. bleh.

    be bold and go shell pink lol
