Thanks for all the mental support!

The big white truck delivered me some happiness from Sweetwater.

Classic Vibe 70s Stratocaster Natural finish.

Neck is great.
Frets are pretty good, they need a Polish, but I'll hold off for now. Might adjust the truss rod after it settle the next few days.

2 piece body
just a hair over 8lbs...

And pretty as can be..

I am starting to have a thing for Tortoise pickguards...

Thanks everyone! Y'all convinced me to take the leap and order it on line.
It resonates great, feels great, and looks killer.

Still will be on the lookout for the CV70s Strat Maple fretboard neck for it.

Also received the new tortoise pickguard, CTS pots, GFS 6k single coil size humbuckers in cream, and cream knobs. The Guitar Madness "Smooth Velvet Alnico II Middle pickup RWRP" in cream is arriving tomorrow. It is also spec'd at 6k.

I will build up the pickguard, but plan on playing it as is for now.
