I just bought a Standard Strat, FSR about a week ago. It's my first Strat and I'm very excited about it. I'd played a variety of different Strats and this one spoke to me. And it was $100 off the regular price - that spoke to me too! So far I'm really enjoying it. The pickups are hotter than I'd expected (which is good). I'm considering replacing them with Tex-Mex someday, but I intend to play it as is for a couple of months before deciding anything. I've ordered a pickguard and pickup covers/knobs, however, to make it match my main Tele (see below). Should be a fun addition. This is my first Strat.
