Nothing crazy. I already had the black American Special HSS which comes with a rosewood fingerboard. I really wanted an American built (just because) Strat in Sunburst with SSS Texas Specials and a rosewood fingerboard. Since I didn't have anything with a maple fingerboard, I went the easy route: another American Special in sunburst SSS with the maple fingerboard, then just swap the necks. /shrug

Only one pic (and a crappy phone pic, at that) since everyone knows what a Strat looks like :P

Thanks. Yeah, I like the look of the black one MUCH better with the maple neck. And the sunburst with rosewood makes me think of SRV or Mayer (yeah, yeah...but he's a hell of a player IMO...love his bluesy stuff).

Sweet!

I'm not a huge fan of the 70's style headstock, but those two are sexy!

Those are the best stratocaster headstocks!

Oi nothing wrong with Mayer at all. Great player imo, love the sound :-)

I have a black body/pickguard Fender with maple neck too. Very sweet looking indeed, though my pickup covers and knobs are cream white. Kinda David Gilmour look-a-like :-)

Enjoy !

Me either, yet 2 of my 3 Fenders got it

Anyway, nice matches after the neck swap.

How 'bout some Fender/Schaller locking tuners when the bank account recovers?

Thanks guys. Kinda tempting to put black tuners, bridge, and jacks on the black HSS....hmmm....

Always nice to have some more Strat fans around! Congrats. Those Texas Specials are clean tone heaven.

Tempting. But then you'd need another guitar with an ebony fretboard and swap the necks again and have it all black. Might have to go with Warmoth to get a compatible 22 fret neck in ebony for a Strat?

I generally hate strats, but that black one is actually pretty bad ass....

I use to hate strats myself. I felt they looked very generic and boring. Now after 4 years I find myself loving strats and thinking RG's and RR flying v's are too generic looking.

nothing wrong with strats at all, most ergonomically correct guitar ive ever played or owned. oh yeah, they sound alright too

Thanks all. Yeah the black one does look sexy IMO. Either one plugged into the Deluxe sounds great. Same with the DT25 really, but something about a Strat and an HRD...and then adding a little dirt with the Fulldrive and/or BB....kinda yummy. Now if I can just get my fingers to help out a bit more in the tone production process...
