    A brief period of GAS lead me to this purchase.

    I flirted with the idea of getting a CS Strat but then I saw this guitar for sale, at less than the price of a Pro ii, and pulled the trigger. It's an American Original In Olympic White with the minty guard.

    I have a modded Player Strat' set up floating so have hard-tailed this. Sacrilegious maybe but It plays and sounds fantastic. I couldn't be happier and it also fits in nicely with my AO Jazzmaster and CS Tele'.

    That's fantastic. The best color combo, too (along with buttercream w/ rosewood). Hngd.

    That's quite the trio you got in front of your couch there. You should buy some of those mini sombreros and put them on the headstocks and then you could start calling them "The Three Amigos"

    Awesome! I agree, that's a classic color scheme. Glad you found your perfect Strat!
