    It has only been 1 month since my last ngd post. But here I am with another guitar purchase. I ended up find this classic series 50s strat in daphne blue on clearance for $649 new. Being a member on here has definitely hit me with wanting to get more strats >___>. Maybe I have a problem. I have to do a setup, deck the trem on it and maybe change the tuners to locking ones since I prefer those. The pickguard isn't sitting flush to the body which I would assume is due to it being a 1 ply pickguard. I could be wrong though. Anyways, I hope you enjoy the pics :D :D :D :D :D

    Thanks. It definitely feels a lot different than my other guitars since it has smaller frets and a more round neck

    I think you’re right about the 1 ply pickguard - I had one that didn’t quite sit flush everywhere. Changed it to a 3 ply mint green. Problem solved and it also looked better than white. Congrats on your new guitar!

    Beautiful! Love that color and especially love the neck. Looks like some sexy grain.

    I’ve never had a single ply PG that didn’t get wavy in at least one spot.

    Ok I won't blame anyone but myself lol. I'll definitely take the blame when you buy another guitar. Hell, I will send you a card saying that I bought it for you or that you won it through a sweepstake that I was hosting lol

    I had no intentions on buying a guitar today lol. I was just returning a purchase and SamAsh was nearby. I have been wanting a blue guitar recently though. Daphne blue and sonic blue are my fav colors that they put on guitars. I figured that I would buy one in one of those colors down the line. But the guitar was cheaper than the regular price of a new player series strat. So I just hopped on it lol

    Is it the guitar in your profile pic? If so, that finish is sick.

    Hi - no, the one I was referring to was an EJ 2TB Strat that came with a parchment white single ply pick guard that I changed to 3 ply mint green. The one in my profile pic came to me like that from Wildwood - it’s a beaut!! And thank you!

    The Classic series are great and Daphne blue a stand out colour.

    @Lewbypls I got the Daphne/Sonic Blue case for $150. And I got the Surf green one for my Surf Pearl Strat for 62 bucks on sale. It’s cool that it matches the guitar. Got em from Guitar Center and Musician’s Friend.
