Didn't you already own a pink strat?


I used to have this Shell Pink Strat but I traded it.



That was around 7 years ago and i have regretted it ever since.That is why I have been looking for a Shell Pink Strat on Ebay off and on for the past 6 years.

Here is a real 1963 Shell Pink Stratocaster

That's affectionate, WTR, not a dig. I admire your capricious nature and your seemingly endless capacity to give it a whirl...

I wish Fender offered more guitars with 7.25 fretboards.

That looks lovely.

Haha,ok,I will give you 1st dibs. My telecaster would be happy if I sold the strat because I let her have his case and told him he could sleep in the gigbag.

if you don't care about gigging it, most chain guitar stores have cases like my strat/tele/mustang case from some random brand, but they're not the best quality. i think they're like $75.

here is one with brostang:



it's super nice. i loves it

edited for speeeling mistake.

I wish they made one that looks like that for strats. The one that MF/Music123/Guitar Center sells looks like this:

The case hotrod posted will also fit a strat. I had one just like it (pretty sure it's a roadrunner case). I used it for my strats and teles and later sold it to a bandmate who used it for his Mustang RI

Thanks Nick,it looks like a nice case.Looks more like a Fender case than the "Musician's Gear" case.

Oh Nooooooooooo



There's a Ghost in the Shell(Pink).

Hidden: 








Should I have it refinished or just get full body cover like this (Link)



I sent this email to the seller:

"Hi,as I posted it my feedback the guitar looked brand new,however my luthier pointed out that there is an autograph on this guitar.Most of it was removed but there are still remnants that are visible and cannot be removed see the photos below

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v228/fuzztone65/Stratocasters/2003%20Fender%20Shell%20Pink%2060s%20Classic%20Stratocaster/ghost3.jpg

In this blacklight photo you can see that the autograph is dated 2004

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v228/fuzztone65/Stratocasters/2003%20Fender%20Shell%20Pink%2060s%20Classic%20Stratocaster/autograph2-1.jpg

This is a problem because this autograph cannot be removed completely from the polyester finish. I would like to know if we can come to some agreement on a partial or complete refund.Let me know. Also,whose autograph is it? Thanks"

Seller says he has no idea who autographed the guitar.He said that he didn't even notice it. I believe him because I didn't notice it myself at first. He said I can send it back for a full refund. Not sure if I will send it back or keep it. How hard is it to remove autographs from polyester?
