    Hey everyone. Just re-joined the Fender family and through some searching for info before taking the plunge I found the forums here so wanted to join in. I've been playing for about 20 years now and my first real guitar way back then was an American Lonestar Strat. Within the next few years i added a couple more with a used 93 American Standard and a new Eric Clapton. Unfortunately I ended up having to sell them before much longer and never got back into the Strats until now.

    I decided recently to get a Strat again and started looking around at what to get. I was looking around and stumbled onto a MIM Powerhouse Strat. It wasn;t listed as such which is what led me here through a search trying to find out what it was. Thanks to some great info here I knew it was a Powerhouse and has the 12db boost and dummy coil under the pickguard making the pickups noiseless and it reminded me of the Clapton I had back in the day with a smaller boost. It's even the same pewter color as well.

    Got it the other day and it's a great guitar and it's nice having a Strat in the collection again too.
