2015 Fender Dave Murray Stratocaster

Alder Body, Maple Neck, Rosewood Fretboard
2-Tone Burst
Flat Mounted Original Floyd Rose
2 Seymour Duncan Hot Rails sandwiched around a JB Jr. Middle pickup
Vintage Tuners

Picked this up the other day, and now anxiously awaiting the weekend to have time to really break it in properly with a marathon jam session! I was very surprised how heavy it is, actually heavier than most Les Pauls I've played. The 3 Duncan pickups scream, get great harmonics, and retain fantastic note definition and clarity even with high gain. The Floyd Rose on it has the best tuning stability of any of the guitars I've ever played with one, have tried dive bombing to the point the strings go totally slack and stop ringing, and it still is perfectly in tune after returning. My only complaints are that the initial setup from the factory definitely left a lot to be desired, and added in the 2 allen wrenches that came with it do not fit anything at all on the bridge or the locking nut. I'm also not looking forward to my first string change with the slotted vintage tuners-have heard the high E and B strings can be tough to get in there.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

I'm a moron tho apparently and everyone should listen to you oh wise pretentious one

My brother just got the same guitar a few weeks ago. Very nice guitar. Much nicer specs than the old signature model - I can't stand the V-shape 50's neck on that one, for once.

How you know you have too many guitars...
