Okay, technically it was yesterday, but still.

This weekend Guitar Center was having a $50 of sale, so I stopped by and got myself a new
09 Fender MIM Standard Stratocaster in Brown Sunburst and with a rosewood neck.

It's one of the new ones, so it has the new logo with the Serial Number and "Made in Mexico" on the back of the headstock, which looks way better than the old MIM's, the neck is tinted, which looks sweet, and the Parchment plastic parts look better, especially with the Sunburst finish, than bright white.

Some people say MIM's are hit or miss, this one was definately a hit, plays and sounds great.

Pics to come soon

EDIT: Pics are here! Sorry it took awhile.

****in' beautiful man.
Can't wait for mine.
How much did you get it for?

$425, GC was having a $50 off sale, but it was just this weekend.

Yes the thing is a beauty, the pics you find on the internet don't do it justice, they look much better in person.

Yeah, the Headstock on the old ones were way to cluttered, that's partly why I went for one of the new ones.

Bleh, the rosewood fretboard kills the tinted look, you wasted a good $25 on the sunburst, and the new logo looks like something you'd see on a Fender copy.

Otherwise seems nice though, if it's like mine I assume it sounds and feels good.

Nice buy dude!

Only thing I would do is replace the pickguard with a tortoiseshell guard.

White pickguards on sunbursts do that sometimes.

TS, I would do as stated and, when you have the cash and time, get a new pickguard to complement the finish.

I'd replace it with a mint green one.

Well, the pickguard isn't white, it's Parchment, which complements the 3-tone much better than a bright White one. It's a little tough to tell in the pics, but it's noticable in person.

Meh. Not a fan of the mint green pickguards.

I'd go tortoiseshell or black. But to each his own, you know?
