New USA Standard Stratocaster USA limited edition
« on: February 28, 2016, 05:45:32 AM »

Hi all!!

FYI's

I purchased a new USA Standard Stratocaster USA limited edition that has Fender Custom Shop 50 Fat pickups in it this month. Love it!! This was a "small part" of a"big deal" when I sold my Vintage 1965 Stratocaster with original Hard Shell case which I purchased new in 1965, as well as my Vintage 1973 Martin D18 with an installed DeArmond pickup in the sound hole. I still wanted to have a good Strat!  The new Strat color is Mystic Aztec Gold which I dig!  I figured it was time, turning 65 in March.  Hope everyone is doing great! 8)

Cool.  I am trying to wheel and deal for a 1960 closet classic fender custom shop strat.  Close but not there..  A good strat is a good thing
Does anyone ever read these things.  I have some guitars, some amps and some effects but none of them play the guitar for me.... Yet.

So... Tell me which one did you get...

After trying multiple things to do multiple things... This kind of fell onto me. 

Traded in the mesa mini rec and a cab for this..  Gave me 10% of in the oddest way I ever heard and gave me negative tax on my trade in... Who's complaining though.



Aztec gold limited USA standard strat USA with 50's.   Got it and loaded it up with 12's and tuned down a half step.  Worked well at practice tonight with the SRV stuff

Way Cool Ken!  Yep, I purchased the maple neck Aztec Gold Limited 60's Edition USA standard Strat with 50's pups in it.   I just saw your other post!  Love this guitar!

Glad I got this last week, this week MF is selling a Fender American Vintage '65 Stratocaster for $1000 regular price as a stupid deal...
