don't support you could blow it up? I have 20/20 but I'm struggling to read it...

Thanks!

you can blow it up in your browser, still a little blurry but you can read it.

I know I've been critical of Joe in the past, but I think he deserves everything life has rewarded him for his hard work. Awesome story. Congrats on the twins Joe.

On a side note, I think he might have recently gotten my favorite color star (fiesta red). At least there is one on the couch behind him in his new video.

Great article, and two gorgeous Strats!

At the risk of being one of those "anoraks" that Joe refers to in the article, it was Carl -not Dennis- who played a Jaguar. As a Beach Boys fanatic, I always admired Al Jardine's Strat, but assumed that it was Olympic White, rather than Blonde. I've seen countless photos of it, but none of them were closeup, and clear enough, to see any hint of woodgrain.
For that matter, I would've assumed that the pair in GP were yellowed Olympic White, rather than Blonde, were I not told otherwise. I know that Fender's Blonde finish got progressively more opaque, as the years went on, but I can't perceive any grain.
My failing eyesight aside, that's a pair of dream Strats, for sure, and it's an entertaining tale, well told.

Great article and I didn't know about the Mahogany and Korina. A light weight Korina Strat sounds interesting!
