    Hello world, I'm the proud owner of a new Candy Apple Red G5420T. I've been playing Stratocasters for well over a decade, but I felt the need for something extra in my arsenal. I was trying guitars at the local shop and that one just worked for me. I will say it feels very different from my old Strat, but in a really good way. I'm looking forward to seeing what I can get out of this new guitar.

    Welcome Alabx

    The red 5420t is a thing of beauty, so congrats on picking it up. Just be warned, you now have a case of Gretschitis and there is no known cure. It manifests itself in getting more of these wonderful guitars and nothing else quite cutting it anymore.;)

    Candy Apple Red, according to the tag. The lighting wasn't great on that picture.
