'08 50's Roadworn, with a new 57 RI guard. TexMex pickups are nasty and neck one KILLS it..has that trademark Stratty flutey/hollow tone!! Has a sweet '57 vibe to it! This is a real '57: IRONICALLY, I have ANOTHER New Strat day to post, I will have it Tuesday, this one just sorta HAPPENED..traded some stuff I wasn't using, and the only out of pocket was for the trem bar! (and a can of Mt. Dew on the way out of the shop ) I got the 57 RI guard and a pure Vintage ashtray cover in the deal too!! SO Part II will come Tuesday!
