    Bought my first real Fender. It's one of those FSR Gilmour-style strats. The neck is amazing! Fits in well with my daphne blue Squier deluxe, also pictured. Love it.

    The neck is a lot darker than the picture shows, more amber than the Squier. It's also very glossy. Also, one thing I noticed is that "Made In Mexico" and the serial are on the back. Maybe because it's a FSR? All other MIM strats I have seen that info right on the front. But I'm not going to talk anymore, I'm off to play! :twisted:

    Once again...shortly after I bought my plain MIM they came out with this awesome model with my preferred darker tinted neck.

    Love it, enjoy it!

    I think they are Jumbo. I'm not 100% sure but they appear to be larger than my Squier Deluxe, which is Medium Jumbo according to Squier. Either way, I like the frets. No complaints here. ;)

    And thanks everyone for the congrats. I love Fender. And while I have no complaints about my Squier Deluxe, it's nice to finally have a guitar with the Fender name on the headstock.
