    Beautiful guitar! Just curious, what is the color? Web browsers always make colors look a little different but that looks like it could be anything from Candy Apple Red to a metalic orange. I ask because I'm starting to decide on the specs for my next guitar which will be a Tele and your guitar is the coolest red I've seen.

    looks like a copper metallic over here. What a stunning instrument. If it sounds even half as good as it looks, you have a winner :)

    The very best Strat I ever played was one of Bill's back in the early 90's.. That thing was awesome. Your guitar looks cool, but Bill still needs a good logo for those headstocks. For all the time he puts into making these great guitars that hobby shop lettering makes it look cheaper than it should look.
