    Mike - do you have a collection of '50s custom color strat pictures? I'm always intrigued by the one-offs from the 50's. One day I'll buy The Galaxy of Strats....

    Hello Folks,

    I just jump right in this wreath-thread without regarding all of the previous 38 pages. Some beautiful guitars here! @mbowen: how many guitars do you own? Grazy!
    Just thought this might be interesting for anyone who ever dealt with Mr. Marovic.
    This guitar, (ups a Tele in a LP Forum) was owned by Andreja himself. A Masterbuilt Fender by Chris Fleming, special ordered by Marovic.
    A very special guitar, very light 2.73kg, without trussrod!
    Extremely good sounding and resonating for days. A very nice chunky V - to C neck, 7,25".
    This guitar was bought by a german musician/dealer some months ago. Unfortunately enough, he decided to let a trussrod being built in by a luthier. Now it's neck heavy.

    So up for the wreath:
