    Bought this last week of GC Used online but just got it yesterday. 50s Classic Strat SR in Rangoon Red. The pickguard has been swapped and the plastics were spray painted green. :confused: There's also a couple of big dings but I got a pretty good price and I really like it so I'm keeping it. Planning on getting new plastics and pickguard on the way home from work tonight as well as some aluminum tape for shielding. I had aonother one of these (avatar) a few months back and regretted selling it.

    Road worn at a discount,, congrats!..
    How does the paint look on the plastic.. looks good from the picture,, just wondering if it holds up under use.. never know when you might need to color match some plastic..

    I painted the plastics sparkle red yesterday just for fun but didn't take any pics. Here's a pic before. Headed to the Chiefs game Saturday!

    Love that model and that color! And good luck with the Chiefs! The Colts look as good as any team right now!

    What's the longest period of time you've stayed in possession of the same guitar?

    I'm keeping my eyes peeled for a deal on a Classic 50's or 60's as well. HNGD....and I'm a Jags fan, but I love Mahomes, dude is ridiculous.

    I can't believe you sold the one in your avatar, it sounded great, but hngd.
    Hopefully it sounds and plays the same.

    I've got my daughter's partscaster that has been hanging around 7-8 years and I've owned my acoustic about 12 years. As for the guard and plastics it depends what GC has on hand. Hoping for a mint guard and black plastics. If they don't have a decent guard I may just keep the black guard I have and use black plastics.

    Why are you a lefty in the pic with you holding it? And, just like my Player Series Strat, that color looks just like Fiesta Red. It looks darker in my avatar pic, but in person it's lighter. When I got it my local Fender dealer had a Classic Series 60's Nitro finish Strat in Fiesta Red hanging right next to it, and they looked like the identical color.

    I took the pic looking is a mirror. Rangoon Red is between Fiesta a Dakota as far as darkness goes. There's no orange tint to it like Fiesta. The two next to each other are quite different. I got silly yesterday and painted the green plastics sparkle red until I can get some new plastics, hopefully tonight.

    That looks great! And the strap matches nicely.

    I’ll be a Chiefs fan for the next three weeks. I’d love to see them win the Super Bowl. Then it will be back to agony of being a Redskins fan. :(
