    Tropical turquoise AVRI 62 from 2012.She sat unsold in Los Angeles in a store called California Vintage guitars.I first saw her there in 2016 and was always tempted to buy but it is an expensive purchase.I'd go back twice a year and she was still there everytime I came back.Finally in 2018 I decided to rescue her and bring her back to Texas.I am amazed she stayed there since 2012 unsold...probably because the action was too high so many people were turned off by the playability.But I knew better and a tweak of the trussrod suddenly rendered her a great player with nice action.

    FSR of what model? Looks like an AVRI 62, but that couldn’t be in 2015.

    People we need more than just pics! Please say what the color is and what model/year Strat it is.

    Some great guitars in this thread.

    As I mentioned in the thread ;) it's a Fender special run from 2015. Cerulean blue Classic '60's.

    I agree with you though, it would be nice to know the exact model/year of some of these beautiful pastels.

    Fortunately many posters have already obliged.
