    You know what to do. Hopefully it's a guitar you own ;).

    It's the height of sakura here (pic from an hour ago):

    So I thought it's relevant that my strats are the two guitars that remind me of this time:

    But, it seems like whenever I pull out guitars I'm treated to some sort of rude awakening these days. Now the bottom of my Scott Dixon triple row case had some sort of reaction with the blue on the Navigator strat and turned it green-ish. I've kept it in there for forever with no problems -- this must have happened in the last couple of months, and the manufacturer said specifically it doesn't react with nitro finishes.

    Man, it's always something.

    WOAH! If the Silver hum bucker from the pink, was in that blue instead, that's like my perfect Strat!

    Absolutely perfect. Blank ebony fretboard and everything. Stunner

    I often think of making it P90/S/S or triple P90, so the bridge pup will probably come out at some point.

    20" radius too. Actually brazilian board IIRC, just a very dark one.

    Reminds me of that Sugizo Navigator model:

    That config would look killer in your blue strat.

    My 2002 20th anniversary Squier Standard Strat with a painted pickguard. Oil paints were used and the colours include yellow ochre, burnt sienna, raw umber & titanium white.
