    Well I know everyone gets tired of seeing plain old 3 tone bursts, but here's another one. Ordered this Am Pro up Monday and she just came in today. My old guitar was getting to the point of needing new frets and that would cost more than it was worth. What was jacked up was that it arrived about 2:45 and I had to leave for work at 5:30. Oh well, I know what I'll be doing tomorrow morning. First impression is that this thing is an absolute dream to play. I'll get better shots when I have time.[​IMG][​IMG]

    Nice. I have one in olive. I wish I could afford another. I don't go for the compound radius stuff like the elites. Enjoy it. You've got something fun to do this weekend now.

    BEAUTIFUL!

    If my 3TSB looked like that, it wouldn't be getting refinished!

    BEST WISHES with that gorgeous thang!

    Ridiculous. I’ll never get tired of looking at a sunburst Stratocaster.

    Very nice. :thumb:

    It actually looks more like a brown sunburst rather than three tone but I guess it is just the picture.

    Happy New Guitar Day!

    I like it :D

    I think I’m just drawn to a sunburst finish on a guitar. My first electric was a really bad Les Paul copy with a really bad sunburst finish. My first really good guitar has a 2 colour sunburst. My Jazz Bass has a 2 colour sunburst. One day I went looking for a sunburst Strat and came back with a black Strat :eek: In its defence, its a very nice black Strat.

    I went looking for a Sonic blue Strat and came back with a 3 colour sunburst on Alder with rosewood neck very close in looks to yours. I got one in 2 colour sunburst with a maple neck just for good measure. I just spent the last hour and a half playing both of them. So much more rewarding than television.
