    I’ve got a few small changes for it tomorrow. So nice to see it in person.

    Congrats! One of the best colours, in my opinion. Really subtle but stunning! Is that a roasted maple neck? Looks yummy too!

    Nice guitar!

    My bathroom was that color until I revised it. (This house is 60 years old)

    Wow, for some reason that combination says ‘NOS’ to me, looks kinda 60’s, love it.

    Very nice, love the pink/maple fret board combo. The brown pickguard works as well.

    The only feature I wouldn't go for is the HSS configuration, I'm a traditional guy and like SSS, but that's just me :thumb:

    Very nice! I'm really digging the roasted maple myself lately. Looks great with the Shell Pink and the tort guard!

    Nice guitar and a tasteful combination of color, pickguard, and fretboard. It's my favorite Fender color I haven't owned yet.

    FSR for a Canadian dealer. Roasted neck, yes.
    I'm going with a mint green guard and changing out the bridge pickup to a single coil.
    I'll see how that is, always have the option to go back or change to something else.
    I'll post pics later.
    Cheers!

    Not going to get a chance to do any changes today. Might just play it as is for a while and see how the bridge pickup is, I'm not an HSS guy usually.
