Re: I'll show you mine if you show me yours (Strats)
I wanted a sunburst, but they don't make them. So I settled for the vintage white. The blue and red are nice too but I just like the color with the rosewood fretboard.
The scallops don't really affect my playing one way or the other. When I first tried it I found it a little weird and was going sharp on chords, but after a day or so it was pretty normal. When people play my guitar they are always sounding out of tune. They try to push the strings down to the fretboard. It's not what I would call a shredding guitar though, but has an amazing sound even when unplugged. It just has more "something" than my Jem and RGA. And it's weird going back to an Ibanez after playing the Fender. Not better or worse just different.
The best part of it is that it was a gift from my girlfriend. Wow!
