Well I've been working in music stores for years, and have had my hands on literally thousands of strats. Some great, some not so great. But none of them ever really spoke to me or inspired me till I found this one. I played it for about two minutes before looking at my roommate and saying I think I'm in trouble dude, he played it, and said, yeah, you're in trouble. So needless to say I couldn't get my card out fast enough. It's a Fender American Vintage Hot Rod 62 in Sherwood. Coincidentally green is my favorite color too. So I couldn't be more happy. I might drop some Lollar Blackface pickups in, but other than that this thing is a beast.
