I actually got this a month ago at our local GC. Absolutely love everything about it!

I'm usually quick to change out pups to Lindy Fralin Vintage Hots in my Strats. But I LOVE the pickups in this one and they're going nowhere!

Had a 3-Way switch installed and the bottom TONE knob rewired to the Bridge pup. Out-the-door for $799 with a gig bag. I had an extra hsc on hand, and that's where it now lives between playing sessions.

Sweet, congrats.

Can't find any info on it--must be some kind of limited run for GC.

Do you know what kind of pups are in it?

"I had an extra hsc on hand, and that's where it now lives between playing sessions."

Yeah see, *that's* my problem...
I have an empty case and I *have* to fill it!

I'm ashamed to say that's happened to me more than once!

Nice guitar btw!
What are the specs? I couldn't find any info either.

Sorry, but I don't have any specs. Just a nice basic Strat that plays/sounds great!

A buddy of mine bought one and showed up at Open Mic with it. It sounded great and I loved the neck and color (Daphne Blue with a light mint green pickguard). So I hauled butt to our local GC and bought the only one left in stock. HAPPY camper!
