Hey guys I'm really wanting a solid orange stratocaster, but I can't find one anywhere! I want it with a white pick-guard and made in the u.s.a, why is this so hard to find? If you know where I can find one for around $700 (u.s money) please tell me, because an orange strat is my dream guitar and I seem can't find one, and DEFINITELY can't afford a custom shop, thanks.

Yeah, man, I'd say the best idea would to just get a MiM Strat of any color and spray it orange(with clearcoat after of course). You can order a body and neck from Warmoth too, and you can get any body/neck/fretboard woods you like, but then you gotta buy the hardware too, so that's probably out of your budget. I personally think orange guitars with black pickguards look pretty 80stastic, shame nobody makes orange guitars...xD

Nah, I prefer to tune lower. My tunings usually go into weird Hebrew symbols.

funny enough, the other guitarist in my band has one like that. Its an American Deluxe, not too old, but I don't recall the year. worth about what you're looking to spend if I remember right. they do exist, just not easy to find.

I saw someone do a custom warmoth strat over at Harmony-central or somewhere in orange.
It was divine.

If he's looking to sell I'd most likely buy it (not 100% sure though) but I'd especially buy it if he put it on ebay as a buy it now. Is it american standard?

Be sure to check various retailers' FSRs. I know either Musicians Friend, Guitar Center or Sam Ash had an Orange FSR Stratocaster a few months ago.
Actually, I go by Dave, but there are already too many Daves on this forum.
