Well, as I said previously, I passed on my Stratru-caster. Today is my grandsons 21st birthday, and this was his special present. He is delighted to get it. He has a new Orange Crush combo (RT35 I believe), and while I was talking to my daughter he was upstairs, noodling away, and the sound was so sweet I had to go up and see the set up he was using. He is a superb guitarist over such a wide genre.
