    Hi!!

    Just returned from my US trip with the most gorgeous looking strat ever! And it sounds amazing too, with a very fat, yet clear, tone!

    It´s a CS strat, a white blonde Mary Kaye with roasted AAA maple fingerboard. The neck has a soft v profile, thick but yet confortable to play.

    Whoo boy, am I happy or what!!

    Oh my god that thing is gorgeous! Just curious, why are the headstock logos visibly stickers? And how do you adjust the truss rod?

    Don’t ever let anyone tell you that you didn’t need that. That’s beautiful.

    The headstock logos are waterslide decals.

    The truss rod adjusts at the heel of the neck, which is traditional.

    Tell us about the neck. Is that roasted or torrified maple, or some kind of crazywood I don't recognize?

    Yes, and the darker wood on the headstock (helped by the light angle on the picture) highlight the decal border.

    The neck and fingerboard are roasted birds-eye maple .

    Careful, you are nearing the definition of a perfect strat. Not much you could possibly improve. ;) HNGD, absolutely stunning!

    Also, nice dog! Looks less enthusiastic though ;)

    Awesome, man. Nice buy! Any details about the pickups or wiring configuration?
