On a whim this past Saturday night I logged onto Craigslist and typed in my dream Strat. After 10 minutes of searching I saw a post that was too good to be true. I responded to it, and was promptly called back the next morning.

Mexi made, but I dont care. Its got all the parts and color that Ive dreamed of. I never thought I would have my dream Strat so soon. Ive been drooling over this model guitar for over a year now, and now its mine.

Perfect condition save a pea-sized ding on the underside and a minor chip under the back scratch plate that seems to have been caused by one of the screws. It has Fender Custom Shop Texas Special pups ($189 value), and I got the orginals as well.

$450 and I drove away a happy man.

Thanks for reading, now the pr0n:

sweet guitar! it looks a lot like my white strat, what model/year is it?

how's she play?

Like melted butter. The action is sick. Im astounded at how low it is, and not a fret buzz to be heard. The neck is so comfortable and the rolled edges are perfect. And the fret job? Stainless, medium frets dressed like it was a 2k or more costing guitar. Im astounded at the build of this thing. And its miiiine!!!
Same colors as mine, gotta love Arctic white W/ Maple fretboard., Great find.

Holy crap dude, it's just gorgeous. I'm jealous

Although the neckplate looks a little wonky. But hey
I've always wanted a 70s Strat in white with a maple neck. They are so cool. But for some reason, everyone hates the CBS headstock, I think it looks awesome.

Normally I'd say get a black pickguard, but I really like how the white pickguard works with your guitar.

Why the fuck would you replace perfectly good pickups (Texas Specials, no less!) with horrible ceramic compromise 'buckers made for pimping up Squiers and Yammys? D:

It's the 70s three bolt scenario. It's vintage correct.

I vote tortoise shell pickguard.

Arctic White is the best Strat colour alongside the Amber colour they do on the MIAs. Nice guitar.

Oh and Texas Specials taken into consideration it's an incredible find.
I'm not a fan of any other pickguard than white on a guitar like this =/
