    Actually I haven't got it yet but paid for and waiting shipping on Monday.

    It's a Classic 70's model in Olympic white, something I have fancied for a while and very Hendrix-y so when a mint one came up I had to have it.

    Sellers pic. Looking forward to receipt.

    Robin Trower says the larger headstock makes for better sounds. Who am I to argue! Actually, I do have a Strat Performer in penny finish and it does sound good. HNG when you have it in your hands!

    Great looking guitar! Is that the MIM or AVRI version? Either way, congrats.

    My first electric was an Ibanez Strat copy in white with a maple fretboard and a large 70s style headstock. I've often thought about getting a similar Fender.
