    HNGD!

    Based on what I can see in the background of those headstock shots it looks like you're adding your new Strat to a substantial collection.

    Congrats!

    Damn..looking at the comments maybe I should have listed it here. Just didn't want to deal with shippers.

    Great find with the case.

    GC/MF are the only places with sane used gear prices. Online, at least.

    Sometimes sane prices..... sometimes.

    I grabbed a Candy apple burst FSR 2015 w fender tolex case a week or so ago for decent around $425 shipped mint HSH.

    Not sure i love the Hum in the bridge but slapping in a 920d harness (makes the hum see 500k, and singles 250k) i put classic vibe neck and middle alincos in and will put in a new SD Pearly gates soon.

    Sweet! I really like that color, especially with the rosewood board. You got a great deal on that one. I thought I did well on mine, but I think you got me beat. Enjoy!

    Wow, that's beautiful! I hadn't previously noticed that color, but I'm aware of it now!

    Played it a bit maybe a hour or so. Love these pickups! Still need to adjust mid and bridge down a bit. Just great strat pups. No other way to say it. They are staying for sure.

    I have a set of 57/62s coming tomorrow for my 60s classic vibe 3tsb. And the CVs are going into my Squier SE.

    Is that the GC FSR with the metallic CAR burst? We apparently have the same taste in colors. I picked one of those up not long ago, but it was HSS. The pickups were just okay. (I didn't notice any particular hum in the bridge).

    But I fell into a loaded p/d with Fralin split rails and I love that color so much I chose to install it on that one and it brought it to life! I think Alnicos with a PG are a great setup for an HSS.

    Sweet! HNGD! I like my Player and was really surprised at the tones/sound.
