Here she is. I don't have a camera so you gotta deal with a crappy cell phone pic but it's pretty well identical to this one. Initial feelings. Plays great, sounds great, is incredibly lightweight. I don't have a scale but my Hamer is 7.85 lbs (gotta love that good wood) and this is lighter. It plinked a little with bar use but a little chap stick cured that problem. It's very resonant and I like the pickups. The bridge can be a bit harsh since it is a strat bridge pickup but it sounds really nice with the tone rolled back just a hair. The neck's very comfortable for me although I'm still getting used to the gloss on the fretboard thing. I was going to go with rosewood but since they're finishing the rosewood boards now I decided to go with maple just because I only have one maple boarded guitar. I only have one rosewood board guitar too but if I'm going rosewood I want it dark and not dyed or finished. All of the rest of my guitars have ebony boards. The charcoal gray metallic finish is really nice as well. It's a little more blue than I had anticipated but I like blue. I have wanted an SSS strat for a long time and I really like this one a lot. The best part is it came with a free stool. Nice case too! Sorry for the crappy picture but here it is Aside from grain variations in the neck it's identical to this. http://elderly.com/fmic/items/FNASS-CFM-MPL.htm I just paid $280 less than Fender wants for 'em now. Had to get in while the getting was good.
