Hey guys !

I decided not to buy the expensive PRS, but purchased a beautiful Fender American Standard Stratocaster Arctic/Olympic White* for around $500 ! It's an amazingly comfortable guitar to play, and the sound is outstanding ! With the special Fender Bullet strings, you can slide from the first to twentieth fret without even feeling the string !

* http://www.fender.com/products//search.php?partno=0110402705

If you have checked the link, you'll most likely think I'm a complete idiot buying a plain white guitar like that, which is why I changed the white pickguard with a Standard Stratocaster White Pearl Pickguard S/S/S* where the three S's represent the three singel coil pickups on the guitar.

* http://www.fender.com/products//search.php?partno=0992140000

The result is a divine white-bodied Strat' with a marvellous pearl pickguard, and I will most probably post some pictures when I get back to Norway ! biggrin.gif Don't judge me too much for giving my guitar a 50-buck makeover, I mean the price was already quite low ! biggrin.gif

Any comments are welcome ! biggrin.gif

Thanks, Bogdan ! biggrin.gif I'll be taking pictures in a few weeks time when I come back to Norway ! We're going to London after two days at home, though smile.gif

Gratz mate, glad you have come into the light that is fender guitars laugh.gif!

I tried to keep out of the Fender mentality, but I now realise there is a reason so many people choose Fender ! One of my favourite guitarists, Dave Murray (Iron Maiden) also uses Fender, and I tried to make mine look like his by putting the awesome pickguard on... biggrin.gif

QUOTE (Jesse @ Jun 28 2009, 12:42 PM) *

I don't disagree, I actually bought the guitar before thinking of changing the pickguard, but I just thought the guitar would look far too simple with the body in exactly the same white as the pickguard... I didn't want another body, as that guitar was the best one I played (even better than some for $2000), so I guess the pickguard was the easiest and best way out ! biggrin.gif

Thanks, Emir ! biggrin.gif We're staying at hotels, so the amplifier is out of the question, but I spend endless moments just drooling over the guitar because of its beauty ! Needless to say, I play it constantly, even with no amplifier ! biggrin.gif

Thanks, Pedja ! I will get serious with the REC programme as soon as I'm installed back in Norway ! I just need the recording equipment I discussed in my other gear topic, and maybe a new amplifier ! smile.gif

Thanks ! I think Yngwie's one might be a bit more cream white, but I did think of him when buying it smile.gif I think it looks a lot like on of the Fenders Dave Murray uses. biggrin.gif

Thanks, Fran ! I'm at the hotel PC right now... I got home a bit sooner than my parents, and my dad locked the guitar case to prevent it from being stolen, so I can't play it just now ! biggrin.gif I love it ! biggrin.gif

Awesome guitar bro...I have the exact same one! Yngwie's is in fact Olympic white...just very aged so it has "yellowed". Your new guitar is the same color combo and neck as Jimi Hendrix's main guitar...the one he used at Woodstock!

Yeah, I thought it was pretty cheap too ! That's why I allowed myself to change the pickguard for some extra cash smile.gif In fact, Fenders are sold for minimum around $1500 ! biggrin.gif
