    So I'm 31, and have been playing since I was 12. I have always had some kind of Strat. My favorite being a 2004 Aztec gold 50th anniversary Strat I regret selling to this day. Right now I have a mid-80s Lotus Strat in Lake Placid Blue with white pearl pickguard. I just rediscovered the Stratocaster after playing mostly Les Paul guitars for the last 9 years. I got the Lotus as a Christmas gift in 2011, but never did anything with it. It just sat in the Fender gigbag it came with. I pulled it out last week and started playing it. The neck is slightly twisted, the tuners dont hold tune, and the electronics are horrible. Needless to say it is in the process of being overhauled. I have a replacement maple neck with Fender decals (not an official Fender neck) I bought off of eBay. I have aged Kluson vintage style tuners on the way. I am also thinking of buying a loaded 920D pickguard off of eBay with either Tex Mex or 57/62 pickups. Will post the build of it progresses in another thread.
