    The photos don't really show the level of detail very well, the checking is awesome as is the UV fading, yellowing and wear of the plastic..it's just ridiculous.
    In terms of options we've got an Alder body, 300 year old river recovered maple neck, medium stainless frets, 10-14" radius, Fl, FL, Aldrich pickups. Vol, Tone, Blend for neck pickup. Klussons, Gotoh Floyd, Sonic Blue Nitro, Heavy Aging.

    Aldrich bridge pickups are awesome.

    I am not one to drool over relics, but that thing is way too cool.

    Sonic Blue, but it is faded like crazy, really depends on the light, sometimes it looks really light blue, other times almost a dingy olympic white.

    Wow a repro of a vintage strat that lost most of its value due to some guy in the 80's hacking up with a floyd rose and a humbucker. Does the route look like it was done with a chisel? I'm not saying its not cool, it is, just kind of funny. kind of makes me wish I snagged up some of those old hackocasters for cheap money that no one else wanted. Now that their being repro'd, the values going to skyrocket!! especially when Fenders Custom Shop starts doing them

    Fender Custom shop is already doing them, that's what gave me the idea, but I wanted a guitar that actually played well, so I asked Suhr to make on for me.
