    He doesn't play, but was walking through a pawn shop in Memphis and found this white MIM Strat for $179!!! He bought it since the price seemed so good.

    So I'll either buy it from him for his money plus $50 or I'll flip it and we'll split the profit.

    Yeah. Not bad for a Lone Star Strat, eh? Just ran the serial number... it's an '07 :cool:

    I'd keep it.

    that's pretty cool that he'd do something like that too.
    I don't know anyone who would.

    Man, thats a great deal!

    Seems most pawn shops in Cali that i have visited don't have any deals at all.

    Just trying to decide between selling it and pocketing some cash or keeping it. But I've already got 2 Strats.

    Thought about that a couple times. USA fat strats with a Floyd are pretty damn rare. Just kind of a tough market to find though.

    I dont see a problem with 3 strats. :D

    Phil has a point, too.

    however, if you go with what I suggested, you'll need to replace the pickguard on the new one for one in solid black.
    to better contrast the other Strat you already own.
    bookends, as it were.

    now, if none of that works for you, you could always send it to me, free of chrage. ;)

    Yeah! Looking at your other two, you need a white one. I like the turtle shell pickguard.

    But after seeing that thread with photos of Mexican Fender manufacture, I've gotta say,
    hey Jose, your momma made your guitar!

    I get what you're saying, but I think it'd be cool putting a white or pearloid guard on it so it'd match our vocalist / other guitarist's guitar

    Starting to think so as well :)

    I like the white one too. For that price why not keep it?

    The lady's folks want our Wii that we don't play much, so it'll really just cost me $100 :love:

    Keep it and put one of the Warmoth baritone maple necks on it. Complete win!

    Hmmmmm... have been thinking about getting a baritone. Why not just morph one of these into one? Good thinkin', Andy.

    And if you don't like it, sell it to me. :D
