    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!

    A lovely Strat indeed.. it reminds me very much of my old AVRI 57 in Surf Green.

    Well done to you, and HNGD.. may it bring you many years of musical pleasure.. :thumb:

    I’m huge fan of surf green, and that beautiful grain on the neck puts it over the top. Two thumbs up!

    Whoa, I knew they had that FSR of MIMs in that color but I had no idea the pro's were available in it. This even looks better than the MIM and I thought THAT was an awesome finish.
