Hello all! I just acquired this little beauty last night and I wanted to show her off!
It's a Fender Vintage '62 Hot Rod Reissue, with a custom Daphne blue paint job and tortoise shell pickguard. A good friend of mine did the paint job, and I must say it turned out really nice!

A shot of the guitar during the early painting stages:


Another:


The finished product:





She plays as good as she looks too! We put a nitrocellulose finish on it that is pretty thin, so the tone of the wood comes through and it will relic relatively quickly. I love the look of an aged strat, so in a few years it should look pretty neat.

As far as tone goes, it is one of the best sounding strats I've played. The pickups have a good bit of punch without being harsh, and it has quite a bit of quack when you are in positions 2 and 4, which i like.
(my guitar lingo kinda sucks...please excuse me for that )
Enjoy!

Well done.

Yeah my buddy did a great job with the painting and sanding. It's very smooth and doesn't have any runs. I bought the paint off of www.reranch.com . They have just about any fender color that you could want, and it's pretty good paint.

Kickass Strat. I really like nitro finishes when they wear down. Mine's polyester, pretty much bulletproof...

I bought the pickguard from a local store around where I live; the guard it came with was mint green.

Yeah it is a great guitar. I'd say it's one of the best that Fender makes besides the custom shop models
