Always wanted to own a beat to heck well made relic, this one is causing me sleepless nights.

It's alot of scratch, wonder of they are form on the price ?

You know when you feel that amount of money can get you a whole bunch, but it doesn't matter. I know relics are not for everyone, enjoy and feel free to chime in.

I love relics. I don't care for Floyd's unless you really plan to be a Gain-iac. If you're gonna shred it should be great, but for cleaner things, that Floyd's gonna be a problem.

Why would the Floyd be a problem clean?

I'm not a relic fan, but the White Lightning looks awesome and sounds good even on my piddly laptop speaker.

Floyd's sound thin and brittle unless you play with lots of gain, then they're fine.

Wouldn't that be a generalised statement? I've played Floyd equipped guitars that sound as good as any other guitar clean. There's a lot more to it than just the locking trem.

I’m not trying to argue, but interested with the logic you may be using (I may learn something).

I have never heard a strat w/a floyd that sounded knee-bucklingly great clean. I've played a buncha floyd guitars too. The blocks are kind of anemic. I'm told in recent years they now make a thicker block, but again, I've not heard one I like.

And it depends on what you want in a clean tone. I like the more throaty tone as opposed to the bright and sparkly clean, but that can be cool sometimes too.

Not a fan/user of a Flyod, but I love the look of the guitar.

That is IMHO the uglllliest cs strat I have ever seen. In fact instead of alder they used ugly wood for the whole damn thing. The price is how much they would have to pay me just to take it and burn it in a hole in the ground, send the ashes to 4 corners of the earth, just to make sure it did not resurect itself. It must come in an ugly case as well. Just saying.
