You have excellent taste! I think the Coral is going to have to cover me for red for a while.

Shocked Drool Headbang Cheers Amazing, Kent! LOVE IT! An incredible collection! Believe me, I think both Dave and I fully sympathize with your affliction! Big Grin It's remarkable how each Strat has a different personality while still retaining that essential 'Strat-iness', and it's so fun to have the opportunity to experience and enjoy those different personalities! Any favorites among all those? (I'm guessing changing every day - that's ho it is for me, at least!)

Thanks Ivan! Yes, it's an affliction Big Grin . You nailed it with the different personalities, and yes, I like to take them all out and give them a spin. My favorites at the moment (LOL) are the EJ Rosewood, the AV 65, and the 2 Custom Shops. The 56 Thinline is so ballsy it's bordering on Tele territory! The Josephina hand wound Fat 50s in it are the BOMB!

I look at the affliction and compare owning a bunch of strats to buying a decent used car cost wise. Used cars come and go without much love but these....these incredible instruments are very special!!!

I actually sold a strat earlier this year because I didn't think it belonged in the "circle of trust". It had a chunky neck and would have never gotten the love! Cool

I almost bought another strat yesterday and it seems to have been sold. I should have not let it get away. Although it was a 2015 MIM, it had a Burgundy Mist alder body which would have been the foundation for another build. Very disappointed I didn't jump immediately!

Burgundy Mist is a great color! Here’s a closer shot of my MIM 60’s Classic Series. It’s got Fender pure vintage ‘65s and a Callaham block & arm. Day to day this is the one I probably play the most as it sits in a stand next to me in my home office.

A few years back I had this pic taken in a customers backyard. Whe the Rock Hall was opened in Cleveland, they lined the streets with Stratocaster sculptures and then auctioned them off. My customer set his in his backyard and even put landscape lighting on it. This thing is 8 foot tall at least!
