    I'm getting up there in the years now and my health isn't the greatest. I'm 56 so 30 more might be more than I can ask for. The way I see it we might as well do what makes us happy. Not much makes me happier. I figure what better to make the day memorable than a new Strat.

    The fit and finish seem really nice. Fat 50's, thin skin nitro, sonic blue, 9.5" fingerboard radius, medium jumbos. It sounds awesome.

    The fat 50's sound better than I thought they would. The guitar has a really awesome Strat quality. I think I'll need to do a set up. The action is a tad high. Overall, I'm thinking it's a keeper.

    It's a Fender made for Dave's guitar. A 62 ri. Here's some pictures.

    That is beautiful. You don't see that dark RW fretboard much these days anymore, looks so good. Enjoy that thing!

    Happy birthday and lovely guitar.

    It is my birthday as well... I was thinking of picking up a Texas Tea Ultra or this:

    Seeing your new blue wonder has me leaning toward that colour as well now.

    I'm hoping you have another 30 more years of playing that beautiful Strat by the way.

    Congrats @Dewey! I share the same sentiment about the Fat 50s pickups. I received a new guitar a few months back with Fat 50s. To say that I was pleasantly surprised by them would be an understatement. I really like those pickups. Enjoy yours!
