So this arrived today. It's nice, like properly nice. I'm a bit in love with it. The finish is amazing, it plays brilliantly, and it sounds like a strat, properly stratty, and it makes me feel stupid for not having a strat before. Really enjoying getting all those John Frusciante/Rory Gallagher/SRV/Everyone Else tones. Now I need to decide what colour strap for it. I normally use cheap black straps, but I might get something a bit fantastic, because it's a fucking purple sparkly guitar.

A word on Andertons: Their customer service has been brilliant. They let me put a deposit down on this a month ago to pay it off Wednesday. I'd a missed call from them on Thursday, and when I called back, the guy remembered taking the order off me a month ago and said they'd just been calling to let me know that some of these have slightly tarnished neck plates and if I'd want to go ahead with it. They then phoned to tell me that the box they were shipping it in wasn't the original Squier box and whether or not this would be a problem. I think this is customer service that's bordering on the absurd. I will definitely order from them again.

Looks Ace. There is nothing quite like a Strat. You either love them or hate them.

If you'd told me, "I just bought a pinky purple Strat," without seeing a pic of it I'd look at you like but that looks gorgeous. Maybe a dark purple strap would suit?

Thinking mint green, pink, or purple.

Love my 60s CV, ridiculous amount of guitar for the money. Jealous of that colour though. Top notch service from Andertons too by the sounds of things. Happy days.

I'd take a nod from Prince and go leopard, a Fender white leather vintage style with shoulder pad bit, or maybe zebra.

Haet leather straps. Too grippy. Also, I feel you can only have a white strap if you eventually want a yellow strap.

Split between a couch strap for far too much, or a one of these:

Andertons have been amazing whenever I've dealt with them before, seriously doing it right in the internet age

Kind of the anti GAK?

Had to remain strong and resist buying one of these when Andertons were selling these off... your pic makes me regret that uncharacteristic show of strength.

Loved the cv stray I'd got from Tim and it was nearly as good as my American one I got after it. Some small tweaks will make it magnificent. Miss it and might sell the bass & old duo sonic to fund it

Burgundy Mist. Rarely looks the same in person as it does in photographs.

Looking so hot.

If built anything like my jamon Jarman sig (probably same factory & finish) there's likely not much you'll need to do to it. And for certain the Burgundy Mist under a thick coat of clear gooped plastic makes it an odd sight under certain lighting, but is nonetheless a sexy color at any angle.

It's the Ryan Jarman (from The Cribs) signature. His brother has a sick bass signature too.
