Cruising Reverb last night, and saw one of these located at a shop about 75 miles from my house. I messaged them, and told them about my Yamaha Revstar 502T that I’d be trading. Depending on what he has to say about my guitar, I may go over and play the Strat. I know it’s a completely unconventional design, but it’s got me intrigued. It’s a limited edition FSR, so it has that rarity factor that I kind of like. I love the Fender modern C necks with the satin finish, and I love mahogany and HBs.
I usually despise gold hardware, but it kind of works with the all black guitar.

That is certainly an intriguing combination of materials. Also not a fan of gold plated pickups. I think it would be on my wall as a show piece if it was avail in UK. I do like the look of the thing.

Not crazy, been gassing for one myself!

Saw a new old stock one for around 850 I think. It was tempting. ..

I really like that color combo and the painted headstock .

I like it. The gold would work if you swapped the witch hats for gold tele knobs.

L&M has an HHH in Olympic White with 3 humbuckers and a black headstock, gold hardware, but not as pretty as that black one.

What am I saying? I hate Strats!

That would be perfect. Still trying to tell myself I don’t need it bad enough to do trade + $$$
