    Hi ppl,

    I have just brought in a Butterscotch Blonde US strat with a Rosewood fretboard. Its feel is just to se6y to describe in words. The sustain, volume and balance when played unplugged is unbelievable. I must have tried some 50-60 strats before buying this one. Will be posting some pics tomorrow. I had been lusting after this since almost 9 years man!! I finally have it in my arms..mmmmmmmmm

    The best part is that the guitar costed 650 pounds including VAT and I got 110 pounds reimbursed becoz I was leaving UK so effectively I got it for 540 which is Rs 40,500 including a fender hard case. Will post some pics tomorrow.

    Will be playing "Red House" all night long

    Beautiful guitar man. Love the Colour. Itreminds me of the kind of guitar people used get Floyds on and start sherdding (Eddie Van Halen, Jason Becker). I cant even imagine how good the fretboard must feel.
    Congrats man:rock: :beer:

    I think volume knob close to strings might allow him to vary the volume more easily.
    Yngwie Malmsteen has old Fender, and he uses the volume knob while picking marvellously.
    You can do that thing only if you can rotate the volume knob using your pinky, while picking notes.

    the guitar looks great...the colour is of my fav in fenders especially with a black pickgaurd, never really liked white pickgaurds in fenders....congrats
