62 reissue? Fiesta Red is an awesome color. The best stock Strat I ever owned was Fiesta Red. I still miss it.

What model?

It's a MIJ (or CIJ actually - it's a late 90's I think) '62 reissue with the USA custom shop texas special pickups.

Just waiting to get my strings so I can actually play it...might go out in an hour to get some actually. Only gave it a few strums so far.

I ended up getting strings for it, and it's all setup now and playing nice. Definitely a plays a bit better than the other one, but I guess it's just worn in. The other one looks practically new EXCEPT FOR THAT F@™¥ING CRACK IN THE NECK JOINT

Nah, it's pretty nice - sounds noticeably darker and less strat like, but that's probably because I had to lower the pickups for it to intonate properly

Also, the shop I bought strings from just started carrying rotosounds....I was going to get a few, but since when do rotos cost almost $9 a pack? I'm sure I can get the same ones online for about $4

Interesting, never knew those came in fiesta red.

Also, as I mentioned above, either it's just the pickups in these guitars (doubt it) or I've never noticed it with previous strats (probably), but do you find that you have to lower the pickups a good amount for them to intonate properly? (particularly the low E)

I've read about how the pickups can pull at the strings and throw off intonation, and lowering them definitely helped.

I know you're using EMGs and not the stock pickups though

Yeah they cost about £6ish here, I think that's equivalent to about $9.

About £4/$6 online though.

That is sexy as fuck. Won't it smudge/fade though? I tried to sharpie my fret dots black a while back but they were almost white again a few weeks later.

Yeah, it will fade but it'll take some time. I did some testing on the back of the bass and it took some serious rubbing to get the sharpie off.
And a tip for fret dots: use acrylic model paint, and coat with a couple layers of satin/gloss finish designed for models. I did that to my fender at the beginning of the summer and they havent faded/chipped yet

you could spray a clear lacquer over the body if you want to keep the sharpie on there.

Hmmm yeah, it might look good faded though actually, you never know.

And thanks for the tip! Thinking of just replacing the fret dots though, apparently it's not too difficult.
