Nice fiddles guys, here's my 1964 Stratocaster with an early 1965 Vibro Champ.
My Mexican '98 Jimmie Vaughan. RS kit and mint pickguard. The rest is stock. Taken some beating since this pic, but I love the pickups and the neck profile. Besides my Gibsons, this is the guitar that needs to be in my live setup. Also I don't need my Strat to be a CS, as it's a workhorse. The Gibsons are more refined, so that's were I go "higher" eace2
I have only one Strat, and besides a nearly identical '59 I've played, it's the best one I've ever played. Oddly enough, it's a Mexican Road Worn 50s Strat that's all stock except for a steel tremolo block. Something about the way it's finished, the neck shape, and the sound is just exactly what I look for in a Strat. I've owned a Custom Shop Strat and a Scott Walker Strat style and this is by far my favorite. I looked all around Nashville to find a Strat in any price range that I liked as much and couldn't find one. She's a keeper, that's for sure!
