Fender Splattercaster. In 2003, only 220 wheel-spun Stratocasters were painted in three color combinations. They have since steadily increased in value among collectors, and still offer huge bang for the bucks. No middle ground with these; one either loves or hates them. For me, this one is a keeper. I dare say it rivals some American Strats I have owned. Another Craigslist steal. It has sat in the hard case since bought, and is still in like-new condition.
