More guitar shopping this week at Cosmo Music in Richmond Hill, near Toronto Canada.  Here are several Custom Shop Stratocasters (and 1 Suhr…betcha can’t guess which one is the Suhr! ;)

Of note:

  • In the fist shot the guitar on the right is in a colour called “Candy Tangerine”.  Sounds delish!  :D
  • I love the “fiesta over sunburst” on the Relic in the last photo.  Apparently these actually happened when customers sent their Strats back for a factory refinish.  The new colour would be sprayed over the original, and then as the finish wore off, both finishes would be revealed!
  • The guitar in the penultimate and…er…pen-penultimate (??) shots are interesting in that the figured maple pick guard is NOT screwed on, but INLAID!  Ntice how it is flush with the guitar’s top?  So different.

Guitar shopping at Cosmo Music just north of Toronto, Canada:

  1. Custome Shop ES-355.  Note: no Varitone.  Obviously not trying to be a reissue!
  2. Suhr and Two Rock amps + Gretsch guitars
  3. Fabric-covered Ritter guitar.
  4. Another odd yet interesting Ritter instrument.
  5. The 355 again.  Not the priciest guitar in the room at $4k ($CAD) either!
