    My first Custom Shop. It's a 1960 NOS CS strat. Bought it off of craigslist from a great seller for a very fair price. It's fun running into fellow gear hounds who appreciate the world of TGP.

    Here are some pics:

    Congrats, nice find. CL can be a great source..at least if it's local you can inspect and play it first which is huge to me.

    Thanks. It was a blast to play last night for the first time - incredibly resonant.
