    Nice guitar. And the Aztec gold is killer if you ask me.

    Even the most righteous will surely be tempted by this golden idol.

    Having seen the video / specs I agree with OP it's a dream combination of a guitar.

    Nice looking guitar, but I'm afraid it would interfere with my ability to play :Devil music.

    Very cool guitar -useful stuff.

    My god that haircut though. Comes an age where you cannot get away with a fauxhawk, and this fella has reached it.

    The Lincoln Brewster Strat … it's a little bit holy-roller and little bit rock'n'roller.

    The more I look at this guitar, the more I want one, but why the hell couldn't there be at least one other color option. I would have bought one as soon as they were released in literally any other color Fender offers.

    If you're hesitant to swing for this specific sig Strat, there are plenty of 50's Classic Player Strats that cop this vintage vibe with modern specs for a fraction of the price. Flatter radius, medium jumbo frets, two point trem, etc. Even comes in gold.

    Give it 6 months and see if it takes off. I really think it's the future of the Clapton Strat, it's so damn versatile.

    Want one SO bad! And for those of you not into "signature" guitars... he purposefully only put his signature on the neck plate so it could easily be swapped out with something that doesn't have his signature on it for that very reason. Class act all the way!

    Dude seriously knows his stuff. I would buy that in a second if I needed another guitar.

    Been taking a serious look at this guitar. It ticks alot of boxes. The guys who are claiming their MIM or EC Strat are remotely like this are delusional.
    Also, a used Anderson doesn't have this feature-set.

    This guitar ticks a lot of boxes for me. It’s a classic Strat with some high-performance features, especially the locking tuners, the two boosts and the adjustable tension for the whammy bar.

    If it came in black, I would sell my EJ for this in a heartbeat. Hell, I might even do so - I like the gold too.
