    Have you had an opportunity to do
    Playability and Sound comparison?
    Just curious how similar or different they are, in your opinion.

    Yup.
    Me too.
    But without the drinkin

    My Bride gave me " That Look " when I told her I wanted to get the Eerie Dess.
    She put up with it, but I an at my limit.
    For now.

    Today I saw a Fender Black Paisley over at Strat Talk
    Man, that was gorgeous!

    ETA
    I didn't know Richie Sambora has 1 as a
    Signature Model.

    peace of mind of owning a new HM vs feeling cool owning an old one. It's a struggle lol

    It is my 1st HSS and I jumped at the
    Limited Edition ad.

    This was also my intro into there being different
    FRTs. I thought " Special " also meant Limited Edition.

    Now I know there are separate Editions with varying levels of quality.
    I'm glad you like it! I've been GASing over the blue one since they were announced, even more since I just realized I've got a few OFRs laying around and a strat case with no strat
    I still don't know if I can justify it without the TBX pots though

    I totally agree with this. Fender seams to give less for more. Should be the opposite. For that kind of money it should have an OFR and a nice case.

    Yes. That was an unfortunate oversight on my part.
    And it doesn't come with a case.
    If I keep mine, I will do a swap.
    I bought into the Hype too eagerly.

    I do like it overall.

    I just got my first look at a pic of a new color for the
    Hm Strat.
    It is Black with Rosewood fretboard.

    She is just Beautiful!!

    I am always a day late and a Dollar short, so you guys might have seen it.

    That is what I am noticing.
    Ever since I got the Reissue, I have noticed the
    Original 80s HM Strats were being bought pretty quickly.

    Thank You for your input!

    Best friend bought one new back in the day and he still has it. Killer guitar for the money. You don't come across them as often as you used to. Same thing with the Model series Charvels. The reasonably priced one's get snatched up pretty quick.
