    I've had various strats over the past 26 years that I've been playing. A few years ago I got robbed: they took a strat and a tele. My 1995 Am std was the only electric they didn't take. I guess the colour threw them off. Little did they know...

    Since covid I've been into mods and improving my tech skills etc...getting back into practicing and enjoying playing guitar

    Is that one a gold or silver paint job?
    Sorry, I can’t tell.
    Very pretty either way.

    It's blue and black, like the dress. YESSSS! I win the five-year-old meme reference for tonight!

    It looks like Inca Silver?

    About 30 years ago my apartment was burglarized. They took my collection of bicentennial quarters and half dollars, worth maybe $75-$100, a really nice pipe made out of a deer antler, a cool roach clip that looked like a key, a watch, a ring, and a few other little things of modest value. Whoever did it opened and went through my old beat up guitar case, but left the 1961 Strat alone! I guess they thought it was too big to hassle with as the burglar, in the infamous words of the Beatles, came in through the bathroom window and, apparently, left the same way. Hooray for dumb burglars!

    Bill, tgo

    I'm actually not quite sure about the colour. I'm not the original owner. I was under the impression that it's Inca Silver or some kind of metallic green. Can't see it on the picture but it has a bit of a "sparkle" to it.
    Anyone else wanna chime in?

    That sucks about the theft...A friend of mine once had his gear stolen from the trunk of his car on Capitol Hill in Seattle. Yeah, THAT Capitol Hill.

    Anyways, he always said he would have rather they stole the car instead of the gear...

    Nice guitar!.

    Judging by the 2 string trees and the spaghetti logo....I'm figuring yours to be a late 90's AmStandard.....

    Could the color possibly be Pewter???

    Here is a pic of my '90 Pewter....

    EDIT: I just noticed the "Inca Silver" was available in the late 90's....soooooooo....shoulder shrug....
