    Lovely Strat. I like the colour scheme, though I might be biased. ;) I've got a Classic 50s Tele and it's one of my best guitars in terms of finish and set up. All I've ever need to do to it was re-string it and tweak the set up to my taste. I hope yours is the same for you. :thumb:

    Beautiful. Gorgeous neck tint!
    So that is in fact a Classic 50's then? (not the Vintera?)
    I'm asking because I'm really interested in the Road Worn 50's Strat which I understand is a relic'd Vintera, and the Vintera has replaced the Classic series. Yours looks brand new!

    It is in fact a Classic series, with lacquer! 2018, I think the last year they made them.
