    Default New Strat

    I did it again. I walked into a GC just to look around, particularly at LPs, and ended up playing with a FSR HSS Strat. The GAS was powerful and soon overtook my senses and I ended up walking out with it.

    I've never owned a red guitar before. I think I was drawn to this configuration because it reminds me of Brad Gillis' red strat.

    Don't know if it's the lighting, but that is a beautiful shade of red! Happy playing!

    Looks great! I had a red guitar once and unfortunately sold it.

    Stingx, what happened to the photo of this lovely guitar? I was trying to recall if it is the same red color as my red strat.
