Bought this a few days ago, I always wanted a half decent Strat, but there's a few songs we do in my new band that really, I need a strat for.
I didn't want to post a review until I used it in the studio, we had a rehersal last night, so I think I can write something realistic about this guitar now.
It's a '70's re-issue MIM strat in a Natural finish.

Sorry about the dodgy pictures, had to use the camera on my phone.






I bought this guitar new at my local music store for £477, unusual for me I usualy buy used but it's not really a high end guitar and I wanted to try a few before deciding to buy a strat, I've never really played that many that I liked. I got to the store and selected a few to try in the booth. The assistant asked if I would like him to get some other Strats that he thought I might be interested in and came back with an American strat, but after playing this one I found the neck horrible and shallow, so I decided on this.
The only thing I found while playing this at the store, was when using the trem, it went straight out of tune. But this one wasn't half as bad as the others. When I got it home I put some graphite in the nut grooves and by the time I had played it for a few days it stayed in tune fine, especially after giving it a bashing at rehersals last night. The pickups sound just as good as the american one I played and it's just as well put together.
I definately think it was well worth the money.

I really like the grain, but I hate that white plastic cover on the back (it really clashes), which is weird, because the white on the front looks fine.

(Actually, if you really want the truth, I think everybody should take that back plate off their Strat, but that's just me.)

That's really cheap. They're £455 online new, are you sure it's not used.

Thanks for the comments.

That's like my dream Strat, just because Ritchie Blackmore played a Strat like that at the Cal Jam.

It's an amazing guitar man, congrats
