A while ago I posted already on the topic, but I have been looking for a brand new guitar as the birth year guitar for my son, who was born in 2019. Today, finally I found the guitar that could fit the criteria and it was a American Professional Sunburst Strat with rosewood neck. I narrowed down to the "classic" colors and was a bit difficult to find an appropriate one. The guitar was a new delivery to the store and I went to pick it up in person instead of waiting for the delivery company. They never even opened the box and it was standing in their warehouse, which I love because the guitar simply smells new. I tried playing on it for 20 minutes after I brought it home (because I actually wanted the guitar to remain unplayed for the next 20 years, but I had to test it) and I timed myself. I like the guitar very much although the frets did seem a bit strangely high (despite me being used to my '62 Thin Skin Tele which has 6105 frets) and the pickups were a bit different from what I am used to. I found them to be quite far from my CS '69 set, but still weirdly I thought the bridge pickup was usable (and I generally avoid it). It weighs 7.7lbs, a bit heavier than my main axe these days, AO '50s Tele which is 6.9. Now I have packed the guitar and as I will transport it for storage overseas within the next month or two and I hope it won't see light for the next 20 years. Below pictures of the guitar and pictures of a part of the family.
