Hey Ya'll

I'm in Australia and in the market for a new strat. I'm after an American Standard, however am not a fan of any of the colours, except maybe the Olympic White that they offer. What I REALLY want is Sonic Blue or Surf Green, but they aren't offered on the new American Standards

So basically what I'm asking, is there an American production model offered in Sonic Blue or Surf Green??

Thanx in advance!

Oh, and re-finishing is NOT an option.
Chitarre:
Epiphone Les Paul Custom (Ebony)
1969 Fender Competition Mustang Bass (Competition Red)
Amplificatore:
Orange Thunderverb 50 head
Orange PPC412

Effetti:
Fulltone OCD V 1.4
EHX Big Muff PI
EHX Small Clone
Boss TU-3

Are you against purchasing a MIM?...sometimes they are even better than americans... it seems like the quality of product coming out of the u.s is going to crap nowadays anyway.

i have to disagree.

of the major manufacturers i would say fender is doing about the best at keeping great guitars at the $1000 mark. having compared many MIM strats/teles to MIA recently, i really have to disagree.

that said, the MIM 60's strat is a dayum nice guitar, but i'd rather have an american special for about the same cash.

also, a daphne blue strat will fade to sea foam green over time.
I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.

You obviously haven't looked at a Sienna Burst with a maple fretboard.
