Just acquired my second strat. This one is an 02 "Factory Special Run" ...only 250 made. It has a flame maple top, gold hardware, maple neck and has been upgraded with point to point shielded wiring and Bill Lawrence noiseless pickups. Also it has been wired so that the highs are not cut when you roll off the volume. I have heard of this mod but never played a strat that had it done........the mod is awesome! Anyhow, here she is. This is an awesome piece of work. It looks, sounds and plays like a dream.
