    Hello, new to forum. I've played acoustic for 20+ years and have a nice Gibson and Martin and just got a (1991?) Strat Ultra as first electric. Being new to electrics, this model wasn't on my radar but actually got offered more than expected for a Yairi WY1 at GC. This GC didn't have any American Standards for ~$1k (had a LE for $1400 and a dented/badly buzzing Tele for $750, and lots of new Professionals for the same price as the Ultra).

    Really like this guitar so far, 'niche' sound is a plus for me as a non-purist and tastes including Jerry Garcia, Bill Frisell, Trey Anastasio, Gilmour, Trucks, Neil Young, some Zappa. Also like a wide variety of other music ranging from 'outlaw' country to classic rock, generally more melodic leaning tones than say AC/DC, but also like some 90s alternative/grunge. Only slight hesitation is the Ultra seems a tad heavier than most other (newer) Strats I tried but hasn't been uncomfortable yet.

    If anyone is still watching this thread, any feedback on purchase is appreciated, including telling me I'm crazy for considering a unique Strat for first electric. Or that it's fake (I'll have it checked out by a trusted tech before return period ends, but welcome any comments regardless or any specific things I should ask him about). Thanks!

    Just ran across this thread. I'm the proud owner of a '91 Antique Sunburst Strat Ultra, and I LOVE it.

    I did not see your pics...we need to re-establish the Ultra as one of the best guitars made by Fender, with input from the Custom Shop.
