I bought the guitar when I was in Calgary last week and ordered an EMG DG20 prewired pickguard set. The pickups came in yesterday and i love the tones i can get from it. The guitar is an American Deluxe V neck and plays awesome.
As you would expect from a high end strat the fit and finish is perfect and the guitar stays in tune perfectly even with David Gilmour style bending. Came with the new SKB Deluxe case, strap, cable, strap locks ect. good value for the money, i paid $1,475 plus tax for it.

Nice my pa has the David pickguard on his MIM and it sounds boss. I can't imagine what it would be like on a really nice strat...It would probably sound like Gilmour

Piano dick had some good parts, but should have said "As the business man slowly gets boned", would have accented the whole dick feeling of the album
