    I just did 2 absolutely perfect purchases.

    The fender classic 60s strat I got used for 400Eur, and it's just exactly what I wanted from a strat, sounds and play perfectly, the neck is wide and the fretboard flat. Perfect.

    Not to mention this Vibe... god, what was I loosing by using a digital pedal for my vibe sounds, which is my favorite modulation. Its SO superior sounding. Wasnt cheap this one, but sooooo worth it. I'm really happy!

    Glad to see you finally got your Strat! One good thing about a good Sonic Blue is that it can look blue or white depending on the lighting :thumb:

    Is your new Fender Strat white? or blue? Cuz all I see is white.

    What kind of "Vibe" pedal is that?

    I see a white Strat body with mint green guard.
    Looks like a DryBell Vibe Machine.

    Thanks. Never heard of DryBell. Just got thru researching this pedal. Very nice with lots of useable features crammed into a regular sized stompbox. Smallest analog vibe pedal I've ever seen.

    Yeah, love the pedal, fully reccommend for someone who needs all those modulations to play with. After staying in my board for 3years+ I know that what I really like is vibe and chorus, no need for all the functionalities that the nebulus offers. I must say that although the digital modulation from it is pretty good, and it did its job in many many gigs, never failing me. Still, it is not the same thing as the analog stuff. It really feels very very different and sounds noticeably more natural.

    its sonic blue guys, it really can look white, green or blue, depending on the light and souroundings of it. This was actually what dragged me to that color.

    It is a drybell - Vibe Machine, I tested it agains the Mojovibe, the Retro vibe and the Deja vibe from a guy here in bucharest that plays a hendrix cover gig and he has all the vibes ever haha. All of the mentioned pedals are just stupidly cool, the Vibe machine won the contest due to its size. I wouldnt say it sounds better than the others, they all sounded glorious.

    I see exactly what you're saying and I don't think it's going to be a permanent fixture on my board either. I use it as a pseudo compressor, and chorus, pretty much in that order. I hadn't had a pedal board in a fair few years and over estimated what effects I'd actually put to use.

    Nice!
    Funny how the Strat still looks white.
    I can now see the blue reflection on the edge from the strap.
    No worries, my cat thinks my TV Yellow SG is white.

    Yeah... same here. Still looks white.

    I wonder how Logan photographed his, where it shows the Sonic Blue's real color?

    It was on Fender's website. My friend Colton has this exact strat and 99% of the time it looks white on stage. :thumb:

    And depending on what you inhale, it can also look purple, lime green or poker dot ! Crazy Strat I tell you.

    Must be your display guys, I see it blue.
