    I was def not happy it took so long. The day after I ordered it I got an email telling me they wouldn't even start building it until January 11, cause of their "holiday break". Then it took them 9 weeks or so from that date. It is pretty damn awesome though. I think if I ever wanted another one I would call ahead first, LOL.

    I got the American Performer cause I wanted the big headstock. I prefer Medium Jumbo frets to Jumbos but it feels pretty good so far, getting used to it.

    I've long been a hardtail advocate.

    That's fantastic! A few years ago the Autumn Blaze Metallic almost tempted me into buying en elite series strat, it looks amazing!

    I love it. Hope it plays and sounds as good as it looks. In the picture the color reminds me of my Candy Tangerine deluxe. Enjoy it!

    The first Strat (my avatar) I purchased this month is a hardtail. I just stumbled into it and am grateful I did...it’s amazing. Kind of kicking myself that I didn’t try a Strat earlier although no use dwelling on the past...just move forward.

    Very cool new guitar...enjoy!!!

    Candy Tangerine was my second choice. It was between that and the Autumn Blaze for a good week or so!
