Love the narrow saddle spacing. I built 3 strats with 2 1/16" spacing this summer. Playing the high E string is a bit easier when the string isn't on the fret ends.

Your's looks super comfortable and just right! I remember enjoying these at the store.

Use it well, often, and LOUD...

Nice pick up, OP. Squier makes good guitars. I have played a standard Squier Tele for years and it is solid. The CV Squier series is real good stuff.

Texsunburst, you have too many Strats, and I am just the guy to help you overcome this ordeal. I'll take the '09 Daphne Blue. Thanks a bunch.

Nice! I just picked up a Daphne blue Squire Deluxe strat with the maple fretboard and a surf green Squire Surf strat with the maple fretboard. I bought the pair for under $500 and they are great playing/sounding guitars!
