That strat looks great, Pf! The picture makes it look like it has a late 59 style burst. My favourite.

My self-assembled Ritchie Blackmore style strat - based loosely on the ones he was using with Deep Purple in 74 and 75 (although the bridge saddles and staggered pole pickups are not period correct).

MJT body, Musikraft neck - scallops by DC guitars. Love it!

Local shop has one of the roasted ash with roasted maple neck limited strats marked down. Very zingy and resonant. Nice full neck profile and light weight. One strat is enough for me, but if I was in the market this is a pretty great one.

The two I have left and will keep. Offsets come and go but these have just the BEST necks!!!

'83 MIJ Squier SQ-serial (all stock) and 70s MIJ no-brand "get funky" plexi Strat with 80s "Select by EMG" pickups. This one is HEAVY!

OMG, it's just like the Strat on the back of Lou Reed's The Blue Mask! :-*
