    Hello from Chicagoland! Sick of fb groups and decided to give a forum a shot again for the first time in a decade. Have had the red American Standard since new in 92. Went to GC to check out an American Professional but ended up going home with the surf pearl Player. Pretty blown away by the current MIMs! So much that I found the deal on the LPB via a PSA post on here and decided to scoop one up to mod for the first time and learn to work on the damn thing myself. Anyway, glad to be here and hope everyone has a happy thanksgiving. DB27C033-4BB3-47B3-89F0-E8A07B254B26.jpeg

    Welcome!
    That surf pearl is more mouthwatering than a Thanksgiving turkey!

    Welcome to ST! Those are some great looking guitars, and you've certainly come to the right place if you're interested in working on or modding your strats.

    Welcome to Strat-Talk, Johnnyd1320!

    That's a nice looking trio of Strats, and I can understand why the Surf Pearl Strat went home with you. Back when it was easier to hang out at a GC, that Surf Pearl color would catch my eye every time I went in.

    Welcome to strat talk those guitars look really nice. You have good taste in colors I have a lake placid blue mim and a candy apple red standard squier. Lots of friendly helpful people here. I think you will enjoy it here.

    Welcome and nice guitars. Love all the colors.

    I bought a nice used Player’s Telecaster a couple of week ago and I’m pretty impressed with the guitar. Sounds good, stays in tune, and nice neck.

    Congratulations.

    Welcome from an ex Illini....Funny, I have 2 of your 3 strats....a '90 MIA in Frost Red and a Player in Tidepool....I do have a Surf Green strat, though it is an MIA and not the Surf Pearl....

    So, I guess what I'm saying is.....you have great taste....

    Nice looking group of guitars....
