I can honestly say I have never owned one but would love to.

Three weeks ago I became the proud keeper of Sandy, a Shoreline Gold custom shop designed 50's MIM. There are pics on the Introductions thread, but I cannot seem to get them to upload here. Anyway, I would like to join the group please...
This is mine. TBH, this guitar change a lot for me when it comes to Mexican made guitars. The only thing I can say that I mind are the pickups. Very thin sounding.
There was nothing wrong with it and I'm always on a look out for these models.
But, that is some that can be changed and so I put from a American Standard strat and now is killer.
Also I had to refin the neck, so now it's smooth unfinished and has that honey vintage color to it.
Bought this MIM Black Strat to flip a number of years ago. It came as a HSS, but I had to try it out with other loaded guards. The one that seemed to stick and make this guitar desirable to me is a Gilmour EMG guard with SA pickups. The trem is set up to float, and stays in tune.
This is the other guitar that stays out of a case, ready to play.
Fairly new here and thought I'd join the club, I picked up these 3 beauties in the last 6 weeks.
2014 Faded Cherry Standard Plustop
2017 Arctic Whte
2009 Sapphire Blue Deluxe
Here's an action shot (also my avatar pic) of my 2000 Standard, which has long been one of my very favorite guitars. I didn't really want a black one, but I tried several Strats at the store and this one really stood out. I have never had another guitar that so immediately felt like and extension of my hands. It now has a Callaham bridge and a Lace Sensor Red-Silver-Blue pickup set in it. So it doesn't sound like a classic Strat, but it's very versatile for use in a cover band that does a lot of disparate music.
Here's my MIM 2008/09 Standard in Olympic White with RW fretboard:
This one said "Special" but I think it's Standard dressed differently...
It's a Candy Red Burst. I have one from 2013.
Mine looks like this now...
I put Tex Mex pickups in it and white appointments.
My Number One. She lives by my bedside when not in use
Happy to be a member of the Club

I have a 2004 Fender Standard Satin Strat in midnight blue. I call her my Midnight Mistress. I had the neck professionally scalloped (DC Custom Guitars) in 2011. I installed a set of Seymour Duncan YJM-Fury STK-S10 noiseless pickups. Then I modded the guitar body to accept a GuitarHeads Wilkinson WVCCR Vintage 6 Hole Tremolo replacing the worn out Fender bridge. I mistakenly had my wife order one that fit an American Strat (different hole spacing) for Christmas 2014 but I decided to keep it since it was a gift. I also installed a Graph Tech Sleek TuSQ String Tree and TUSQ XL Nut. I play her wearing a Fender tweed guitar strap with rubber washers as strap locks. Next I'm thinking about replacing the stock tuners with Fender locking tuners for easier string changing. I'm reading they should just drop in this model I hope!
I always loved the satin finished Strats, especially this color.
