I remember seeing these back in the day and kinda always wanted one. <br /> <br /> Back in '07 Musician's Friend blew em out for $400 and they normally went for $700. <br /> <br /> They made a special run of 350 in Oly white and 350 in Black.<br /> <br /> This guitar is in killer shape and still had the plastic on the pickguard and back plate.<br /> <br /> I like the reverse headstock and the reverse bridge pickup a lot.<br /> <br /> The lows are a little brighter and the highs are smoother and not so bright. <br /> <br /> The stock pickups aren't bad at all and I'll most likely keep them.<br /> <br /> The tones here are very different from all my other strats, so it's a good addition.<br /> <br /> Got a REALLY good price on this one. The store thought it was just and average MIM Strat. <br /> <br /> Here's a pic.

Your fence needs some maintenance.

Always dig the way the bridge pickup looks on that particular guitar. <br /> <br /> Very classy look. Congrats on the new guitar.

Sandbagger, it's a relic'd fence.<br /> <br /> That's the trend down here in South Texas.<br /> <br /> I guess you live under a rock in your parts.<br /> <br /> Can't tell if you're serious or not.<br /> <br /> If that was a serious dig on me. Oh well.<br /> <br /> I thought ALL us Texans had manners.<br /> <br /> I guess not.<br /> <br />

Congrats!<br /> <br /> I prefer the older 60's Reverse Special to the recent Hendrix Strat Fender put out. All of the Hendrix Strats I played had very stiff action.

Thanks Peego and 5Strats.<br /> <br /> I agree with you on the 60's Reverse.<br /> <br /> I did play one of the newer Hendrix strats and it didn't feel as good as this one.<br /> <br /> The neck on this one is just perfect.<br /> <br /> Not too skinny and not a baseball bat necks.<br /> <br /> I feel lucky running into this one.
