Be still, my beating heart...I think these are the first Shell Pink (American Standard)Stratocasters Fender has made since 1963. People have told me that Fender made one in the 90's but I have never been able to find any proof of that. This is the guitar I have been searching for since 2004(after I foolishly trade away my Shell Pink Custom Shop strat).











Now I am finished buying guitars.

awesome. how long til it's gone and you have some other random guitar? Wink

Just kidding. I love how you have guitar ADD. You've owned some seriously interesting instruments in the 4 years I've been on this forum.

Thanks! I just do it to entertain y'all. Laughing

This is the one I had in 2004(right side) I bought it for $999 at Music Go Round in Minneapolis.It was the 4th guitar I had bought during my splurg(2004-2013).I was in a Rickenbacker phase then(my 3rd guitar was Rickenbacker 325c58JG) so I traded it to Willies American Guitars for a $1399 Rickenbacker 340. I thought I had made a great deal at the time but soon after regretted my decision. Haven't be able to find another Shell Pink strat that I could (afford) until today.

There are something like more than 250 colours and 450 guitar photos on my colour chart site and comfortably in my top five for either is a stock photo of your guitar (well, an MIJ one that's similar).

There are only a very few guitars that work with gold hardware. I could forgive an actual 50s Mary Kaye Strat. Nice pank ones, though. My very first finish was that color, on a MIM SSH strat.
