2001 USA made Fender Standard Stratocaster Sunburst colour, Got it cheap complete with hardcase.

 

Flog it on later making a profit. Great sounding instrument.

Nice Axe Andrew but I prefer the Maple fret board over the rose wood. (purely for looks)

 

Mine is a Sunburst Hand crafted in Japan Strat' (Maple board) & Texas Special Pickups. 

 

(Some say the Japanese sounds & plays better than the USA??)

Each to their own Martin, mine is the 2001 version, some say the newer models are " tinny ".

 

Just sold my CiJ Aerodyne Telecaster, again that to me was a tinny sounding guitar, very thin body, but a great player

I prefer my Fender Blacktop Mex, alnico humbuckers candy apple red.

Great soft tones out of it.

Have to admit, haven't had Strat' out of it's case for about 3 yr. 

I prefer my Fender Blacktop Mex, alnico humbuckers candy apple red.

Great soft tones out of it.

 

I also have a very nice "Norman" (Canadian) Electro Acoustic cut away. Onboard tuner, I think?? + tone, Bass controls etc - again not used for about same. (Likened by some to the Martins - No not me lol)

 

Another one you won't get chesters!!.
