    Who has both a daphne blue and surf green strat? Can somebody please post a picture of them side by side? I need the comparison from a real life shot - I can't determine what I need to from the samples on Fender's web site.

    Thanks in advance.

    Not 'side by side', but in the same shot...

    This one is GORGEOUS. Please explain this one- built from parts? Who did the finish? What kind of pickup/wiring?

    Thanks!!! It was built/finished by a ex-Fender masterbuilder for a good friend of mine. It is wired like the original esquire and also has NO truss rod. The neck is on the larger side (not huge) and stable for 6 years I've owned it. It also has one of his custom wound pups.

    WOW! I bet I can guess who that ex-Masterbuilder is, and I wish he were my friend. I've never heard of a non-truss rod Fender. Is that for added sustain so the truss doesn't absorb string vibration? I'm a fan of fat necks (grew up playing a les paul), so what you've described is right up my alley. I'm actually on the fence right now about buying a custom shop Esquire or commissioning one through a builder- basically exactly the one you have!

    The pic is not mine. I lifted it from (TGP member) csapo. I did (at one time) have all of those guitars. I recently sold the LPB, CAR and SG ones... :(

    P.S. But, I still have a Shell Pink, Daphne Blue and Whit w/a white headstock thinline... :D
