So its a customized American Fender Strat for $600. I dont know how much it would fetch for, but you CAN go used for the 5150, or even buy the 1x12 version this october for MSRP of 700 instead of saving $1200 for a new 6505 (if that was the plan).

Well i would get a used 5150 head and well...i already have a cab so...maybe ill take this strat since i really want at least one guitar with EMGs and a tremolo. Plus, its a white with maple neck strat just like i wanted. Guess ill save up a couple of months more for my 5150 and thats all.

Nice looking guitar, except the black EMGs are really bothering me. I would almost buy it, then sell the black EMGs in favor of some white ones...

But a guitar like that for ~$500 sounds like a good deal to me.

Glad you think so. I just think it would look so much cleaner and classier. The black is out of place..

Or get black control knobs.
Or a black pickguard.

There's a lot of ways you could make that awesome...

Get it you won't really find a great Fender American Strat at that price especially with an original floyd rose. You can always save up for the new amp head later. What I would do if I had that is switch the pickups to white super distortion and two texas specials but that's just me. Also if it comes with the case that's good if it doesn't buy a Fender Molded case really worth it.

Trust me I just bought a Fender American Standard Strat for $1500 and I'm happy even playing through a crappy amp. The reason I bought the guitar first was because the amp stuff I was going to find used of what I want and playing my strat I can play better easier to gallop, palm mute.

On my Washburn I had hard time cause the bridge was so close by the pickups and felt awkward. Also your getting a deal and original floyd enjoy dive bombs lol. Also if you don't know how to change strings on a floyd learn and same with tuning as well because it's not the same as an ordinary bridge.
