New here...been lurking for a while. This is my first Strat. I've been playing Les Pauls and Teles for years. Never really saw one that convinced me.....until now! I've wanted a Surf green strat since I about 2001 when I saw Tom Delonge playing his in Blink. The pearl treatment takes it to another level 17 years later and my musical tastes have changed, but my brain never got over a pretty green guitar. Looking forward to finally getting in on the sweet single coil Strat tones!
