Only one I've got and the only one I need. Owned it from new sinec 1982, one of the first Japanese Squier Strats, essentially a '57 reissue. I'm so used to the 7.25" radius and low/thin vintage frets that other Strats just feel odd to me, even the more expensive models. Had it refretted a couple of years ago and had it refinished in Nitro.

These are my three. Some of you may have seen them before...

The Strat was my first love and was, beyond doubt, my teenage dream. All of them are over thirty years old and between them they do absolutely everything I need from a Strat. Not one of them is ever leaving my collection -- I absolutely adore these guitars!

This is a Les Paul site and I do love my Lesters too -- but the Strat tone (clean, quack, driven, mid-boost, whatever...) is still the first thing I hear in my head when I think electric guitar.

The middle one was once Sonic Blue but has yellowed quite significantly over the years. It's the only one would consider getting re-finished (and gently aged) as I really do like proper sonic blue.
