    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.

    Very nice. I really like the FSR runs of most everything including amps.

    Didn't you sell a bound neck beauty a while back?

    Was it this series?

    I remember that one! I wished I had the money, that was right up my alley for style. Never saw a bound inlayed fretboard before.

    And really nice wood IIRC, I'm a big fan of wood. That's why I remember it!

    GREAT looking Strat!!!! :)

    I have a 2013 FSR American Standard that is like yours, except it has the regular unbound rosewood fretboard. I don't know if there was a specific number made like yours or not. They were made in Sonic Blue, Surf Green and Shell Pink, though.
