Finally decided on the guitar I will keep for the rest of my life!

This beautiful MIM Standard Strat, Sierra Sunburst finish. GC Online price- $449
In-store label- $499

I paid- $409 brand new






I absolutely love the bite of the single coil PUPs, my first experience with them. Great great sound from this guitar. I figured the HSS config would be pretty versatile.

The neck has a very fast and silky smooth satin finish, very easy to play and play well.

The setup from the factory was a little off, but that could've been because it was out on the floor for a day. It looked like it was strung by a blind man, but once I restrung it with some Ernie Balls it was like new.

Action was perfect from the factory, this is my first guitar without a FR. I guess that's a good thing

I just LOOOOVE the Sierra Sunburst, I don't think anything else would quite do it justice.

You'll be back. Pretty soon you will end up buying a new guitar.

Anyway, Happy NGD. That is a really nice strat (I am not a huge fan of strats in the first place, but that one is really nice.)

GAS is a tricky business...once it lets you in, it won't let you go so easily. I think there will be more guitars. HNGD

It will be far from my last NGD, but it is however my last time going back to GC to exchange 3 guitars to finally settle on this beaut.

Squier Tele-Returned to buy- Ibby S570(kept her) Schecter Damien-Returned to buy an ESP LTD KH202- Returned to buy the Strat. " That salesmen probably hates me by now.

Since when did Fender ever make a MIM Standard Strat in Sienna Sunburst? They've only been using that on MIA Standards as far as I know, at least for the last few years.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.

I forgot to mention that it's a "Special Edition" as designated by the seal on the headstock. Guitardater says it was MIM in 2008-9.

What else is so special about it as compared to the $449 one? This one was labeled $499, with another Sunburst @ $449.

Everyone notices the holder, it is evil looking. I reallllly wish they had the neon orange or green one in though.

I think you can probably get them from samash.com I bought it at the local store.

Nice Fat Strat. Happy NGD. Don't try to kid yourself. It won't be your last.

What does the oval decal on the headstock scroll say? The picture is unclear.
