As the title says, don't know what took me so long! laugh.gif I love this thing! Traded a mint 2006 Epi Les Paul for this mint 2007 Mexi Fat Strat and quite pleased with the decision. This thing has some serious versatility.

I also have a set Stan Hinesley custom wound pickups (Zen and Kashmir) I'm thinking about dropping the Zen in the bridge.

Here's some pic's...

Very cool Steve, she looks nice! I am curious to know what you think about the Stan Hinesley pickups when you get them installed. biggrin.gif


--------------------
"Think of a guitar solo as a paragraph. You need a clear beginning, a middle, and an end. Look at musical phrases like sentences, and make sure you break them up using punctuation—or space. You pause naturally when conversing, right? If you don't, you'll bore the listener. The same thing will happen with your audience if your solo is one dimensional. You'll wear them out and lose their attention." —Tom Principato

Enjoy it. I miss my ex-strats some days. Never did have one with a maple neck. Always thought those looked the best.
