Check out my new Strat!



Just picked this awesome Strat up. Not sure what it began life as, i`m assuming a Fender MIM or something like that. One of the best necks i`ve ever played,large CBS era headstock that the logo and everything was completly sanded off. All the plastics and hardware came from the Axl guitar company that sells these relic or aged kits. Not sure what the middle pup is,looks like a MIM standard but the neck pup is an 80`s Fender and the bridge is a Seymour Duncan Hotrail. Overall just an excellent playing and sounding strat that was too nice and cheap to pass by. I will get better/more pics up later,right now just this one i took with my cellphone camera.

Re: Check out my new Strat!

Actually looks pretty cool. I was in a little corner guitar store once and found a scalloped yngwie style strat wtih dimarzios, similar in look to that guitar youve got for 75 bucks. Thing played and sounded insane, i didnt talk to the store owner and went to the bank to get the cash to buy the thing............it was gone 20 minutes later .

i've never had to for a hotrail. for a full size hum, i just buy new pickguards. guitarfetish.com has them cheap enough to almost be disposable.
