    Fender Squier Vintage Modified Surf Stratocaster - Surf Green

Distinctive finishes evoke the fun-and-sun of Fender's early days in Southern California, and Fender's legendary attention to tone and quality make the Fender Squier Vintage Modified Surf Stratocaster a no-brainer.

    I love surf green strats with rosewood boards...but not convinced about lipstick pickups.

    depends on what you use them for. I used El Borrachitos lipstick tube strat for a recording and it was great for funk and some other stuff but I wouldn 't have them in my main guitar.

    I've played one of these, in CAR (like finish color affects tone, whatever). I can assure you, they are most definitely hot. Very bright, yes, but they do exactly as they say on the tin. I also like them through the Excelsior (local shop has both) on the dark setting, it's a good sound, especially with the volume on the amp cranked.

  9. I have never played lipstick pups. I like what they say it will do, and I love the color. I would check it out.

    I like lipsticks, well the old Dano ones anyway is all Ive played.
    If they sound like that, then I'm all for these Strats.

    That is def hot. But would probably change the bridge pup to a hot rails type or little 59.

    Decent.....the pups are probably the weak point....

    Looks great. I would try the pickups first, and change 'em up if needed.

  32. Tiltsta Show me your frittatas

    I like that a lot. I've never played lipstick pickups before, so I would have to try it before I buy it, but it looks hot.
