Pretty. Wonder if there's any chance of them coming out over here.

What are they Rob? US, MIM, vintage spec?

The lilac one is a really nice colour. I can see that being quite popular.

Canary Diamond is the worst name for anything I've ever heard. Closely followed by Rangoon Red.

Just found a pic of the rear that looks as though it confirms MIM. Bax uses the FSR tag.
Quote:
This summer, Fender goes all out with a series of Special Edition Stratocaster guitars. They're releasing no fewer than six Factory Special Run (FSR) models, based on their Classic '50s and '60s series. Each model features its own unique colour, derived from the distinctive, original Cadillac hues of the fifties and sixties. With these new Strats, Fender has added a nice bit of colour to their assortment. How about expanding your own collection..?

Put em on a Tele and I'd be pretty torn between blues.

I think they all have something going for them, but with all of them sitting together they look a bit twee. Like the lilac one best i think

Ditto.
Jetstream is pretty nice too, and, aside from the name, Rangoon looks nice enough Razz I'm with Nick; these on a Tele would be fantastic; on a Strat they're just ok for some reason.

if they'd come with matching purses they'd sell like hotcakes to a lot of couples.
