    This is my first new Stratocaster. 75th anniversary commemorative strat in bourbon burst. I didn't think I would buy one, but a seller offered me 15% off the pre order and I pulled the trigger.

    The only burst I ever liked was the Sienna strat, but this one caught my eye. Just dark enough to not make the gold hardware look out of place.

    I'm very happy with it. Not gonna keep in the case for a collector guitar. They're made to be played, and I'm going to put this one through the ringer. The ash body is lovely and I much prefer a satin finish on the neck.

    Very nice, congrats!

    For whatever reason I was immediately wondering what a black pickguard would look like on that, even tuxedo style. It looks great the way it is, but I'm curious.

    Bourbon Burst. Hmm.

    That’s a real liquor; I mean looker. Something to savor.

    Seriously, it is beautiful. Hope it plays and sounds as good as it looks and gives you years of inspiration and enjoyment.
