what do you want to know? it was a limited run MIM guitar
I got the black like yours, figured everyone else would go for the white for the Hendrix vibe

(I posted this reply in your other thread.
I couldn't resist showing off my dream creation again!
Feast!)

I have one in White. I wish I would have gotten your color!
Regardless....I LOVE mine!
I've totally re-done her though.
Gone is the cheesy single ply pickguard....in went a 3 ply VooDoo pickguard!
She now has:
DiMarzio Injector (n)
DiMarzio Area 67 (m)
DiMarzio Virtual Solo (br.)

Graph Tech String saver saddles
AND....I didn't like the Maple neck and 7.5" radius....so.....
I put on a 2011 American Special Lefty Rosewood neck with a 9.5" radius.
(consequently....I just sold the old neck on E-Bay for a damned nice price!! She now will be living in New Mexico!)
Cosmetically...I like the reversed logo a lot more!
You gotta hear the sound on this baby now!!
This truly is my DREAM guitar !!

I have a white one and a black one still in the box. Long time ago they had a them on sale for $399.00. I think its a nice a guitar for a Mexican strat. I think they were a poor mans Hendrix strat.

Did you plan having a similar guitar with a lefty 2011 American Special maple neck to faithfully replicate the legendary 1968 Strat played by Jimi at Woodstock in 1969?

The axe you posted resembles much to an olympic white rosewood-neck 1966 Jimi used two years before the switch to the maple-neck models in 1968.
