    That's a BARGAIN! Some of the greatest guitar work of all time recorded came out of that guitar.

    Wow. I wonder what Clapton's most famous guitars would sell for if auctioned today.

    I had my eye on one but it got so far beyond my allowance, I shut it down. Congrats David. Heckofan auction.

    Would have bought it but never got a response when I asked for neck profile measurements.

    That's ridiculous...for that price, he should have thrown in one of his cheaper Ferraris...

    It's nice, but the volume pot is scratchy. This wasn't disclosed in the ad. I might return it.

    Generally, I don't like Strats, I don't even own one :eek:.
    Generally, I don't like black guitars, I don't own any :eek:.
    Generally, I don't like Maple necks on Black bodies :eek:.
    Generally, I don't use regular single coil pickups all that much :eek:.
    I've never in my entire life owned a genuine Fender guitar, ever :eek:.

    So, where does that leave me here :D?
    Cold, uncaring, and not that exited :rolleyes:.
