    This is my 14th Stratocaster I've owned, 8 of which have been hardtails.

    Congrats!! I’m still on the fence about ordering one this route. How would you rate its overall quality as compared to MIM, MIA, ....etc?

    This is actually the second one I've had and they were both excellent. It's great cause you basically get to pick out a guitar with just about every thing you want on it, the way you want it (within reason). A ton of different colors, hardtail, a bunch of different pickup combos, etc. For $1750 I got a brand new guitar that probably no one else in the world has directly from the factory to my door. It still smells like fresh paint, LOL.

    Cool guitar! I ordered my Mod Shop Strat last spring (May 8th), just as they re-opened. I got the thing 9 days later.

    It's also a monster guitar with dual Shawbuckers and a solid rosewood neck (at the time, a no cost upgrade). 10% off for getting a friend a Fender Play gift card, and I paid $1530 + tax. Talk about luck.

    Enjoy!

    First of all, I hate you, LOL! Secondly, I got the 10% off for the Fender Play also and still paid $1750. Huh, maybe the prices went up or something. The only real "upgrade" I got was the $50 locking tuners. Of course that $1750 includes $100 in Illinois sales tax.
