This very special limited-run model takes our acclaimed American Standard Stratocaster and decks it out with a suite of sweet design mods, including bright, jangly and highly distinctive Seymour Duncan® SLS-1™ Lipstick Tube single-coil neck and middle pickups and a Seymour Duncan® SLS-1B Lipstick Tube single-coil bridge pickup, a four-ply aged white pearloid pickguard and classic ’60s-era Lake Placid Blue, Torino Red and Shell Pink finishes.

I love this guitar. I have had many Strats in the past, American, Mexican, Squier, Deluxe, etc... This one out plays all of them. The sound can only be described as "MORE STRATTY" with the Seymore Duncan lipstick pickups. The finish is flawless, MOTO pearl pick gaurd is beautiful, and the frets are nicely rounded and level, allowing for very low action without buzz. My only complaint is that the nut seems like it was cut a smidge too low on the 6th string, where if plucked hard open, it will rattle sooner than a guitar with a more perfectly cut bone. Overall, great guitar. the nut could be fixed for very little cash, IF I decide to let it bother me.
