I am unashamedly a huge Beatles fan. As such I have been craving a Sonic Blue Strat with a Rosewood fretboard for some time. I went into GuitarGuitar in Epsom (London) and this caught my eye. It's actually second hand, not that you'd know it. It's mint! This is a Special Edition 60th Anniversary FSR Fender American Standard with a channel bound neck from 2014. It has Custom Shop Fat 50s pickups. I still really dig the unbound fretboards so would have preferred a Custom Shop Postmodern, but this certainly stands out from the crowd and was a steal in comparison. It's one of only 500 in Sonic Blue.
