Post pics of your Fender Strats here:
Here's mine. A new '05 Fender American Stratocaster Chrome Blue with a maple fretboard, plays like butter, most amazing guitar I have ever played. (I just ordered a white perloid pickguard for this as well so that will be the only change in the near future. Then after that I may go for some Kinman pickups)

That's a really...bright...blue. I'm not so sure I like it. Is it really that sparkly or is it the camera flash?
If that thing was white I'd steal it.

the flash really brightened it up, its a more deep blue than that, jsut depends what kind of lighting you have, its like a blue that is a deeper blue than royal blue and has a little sparkle in it (its not as sky blue as it looks in the pic)

EDIT: I just put a pic with no flash in my original post

This is a good thread, i'm wanting to buy a new standard strat very soon, but i can't figure out what i want the colours to be... i want it to look kinda hard rockin so i'm definately thinking sunburst but then i had the idea of getting some sorta crazy colour scratch plate to blend with an outta this world colour... i like morello's new one for audioslave... but i can't bring myself to copy it.

Try finding a picture of a sunburst with one of those tortise shell (dark black/red mix thing, not sure what its called) pickguards. Looks interesting.

I love you! Can I have one? Any reason why you have 5 of them? Seems like you should have spent some of that money on an amp!

It's a really awesome color. Seriously, best..blue..ever

It's sort of like Lake Placid Blue but blue-er

Not very sparkly

it changes colors in different lights (well stays blue but different shades..changes shades)

This is my 2001 American Standard Stratocaster with the following mods: custom pearloid pickguard with H-S-H configuration, Paul Reed Smith Vintage Bass pickup in the neck, DiMarzio Chopper in the mid, and Paul Reed Smith HFS in the bridge. Custom black knobs, custom 5 way switch with coil splitting in the 2 and 4 positions. Master volume and tone, 2nd tone is inactive. You can hear sound clips of it in my dmusic link below.

I think it's faux multiple exposure. Set your camera in a fixed position, then take several pictures of the room with the Strat in different locations. Then go into photoshop and combine the shots into one image by carefully cutting and pasting.

That's the only explanation I can give for anyone having 5 identical Strats! lol All sunburst and all rosewood.

American Stratocaster + Blues Junior

they are definitely a hot pickup, but they are great for that dirty sound. I did a little lead clip over a backing track a while ago if you want to hear them. It's not great quality unfortunately, it's just the strat straight into a Podxt with a clean patch + screamer effect. They are definiltey a lot of fun for the grittier blues stuff.

thanks man I think you will enjoy them.

If you're looking to save loot, I've been told me the Tex Mex are very close to the Texas Specials for a lot less money. I've never tried them personally however, I can only vouge for the Texas Specials. It might be worth checking out though.
