    I sold my amazing FSR HH Strat last week because it had Dimarzio humbuckers and I had just bought an Agile Al3000, also with Dimarzio humbuckers. Didn't need both and the Strat was worth far more so out the door it went. I paid $430 for it and got $500 so I came out alright. I've been scouting around looking for another Strat and found a guy selling a USA Fender HSS in Sienna Burst with and SD humbucker and Texas Special pickups for $500. I had planned on going to see it today when he said he had another blue Fender Strat that he was selling. Long story short I ended up driving over an hour each way and came home with a 2005 FSR Deluxe Vintage Player 62 Stratocaster. Ice Blue Metallic with matching headstock, The base model is the American Vintage 62 Stratocaster. All nitro, SCN pickups, S1 switching that works on all 5 positions. Original G&G hard case and all case candy except the strap. Found an identical one selling for $1500. Only 372 were made. I've gotten some deals before but this may be the topper. I've never even seen one of these AVRI models much less owned one.

    He hadn't even listed this one. I would have bought both if I had the $$.

    Sweet guitar, I think I would have to keep that one, but then again I have a hard time letting any of them go.

  20. I've passed on many colored headstock Strats. I don't know what it is, but I just can't get past that matching headstock thing.
    I have seen a rare few black ones that interest me but not enough to pull the trigger.

    HNGD Lonn.
    Cheers, Barrie.
