The Fender HM Strat is a SHRED guitar far too often over-looked. Once I learned about 'em I knew I had to have one... unfortunatly that was several years after they stopped producing them... But I got lucky and scored one on another awesome forum.
Check it out, and if ya have any questions let me know!

I have owned a few...in my time :thumbs: They are nice Axes and sometimes underated....24 fret 25.5 scale...Made in USA with stock Dimarzio bridge and Fender singles....the only drawback was the Kahler Spyder...nice in it's own right...but once you play a Floyd...it's hard to settle for less...JMHO :icon_lol:

You're goddamn right they are! :D



BTW, I had this sweet VH shirt from the show with Gary Cherone... black shirt, and in huge white letters read:
WHO THE FUCK IS EDDIE VAN HALEN?

:D

Cool! It's a proven fact that racing stripes make you play faster! :)

Very cool looking, and I normally don't like white guitars.

Well I'm glad you like this one! The Zebra is facing the other way now as I swapped out the EVH for a JB (standard zebra now as the EVH was reverse)
