My latest project was to assemble some Strat parts I had laying around. I wanted a ‘jazzy’ Strat: darker, fat clean to, suitable for more jazzy stuff byt also still funkin’ it up when it needs to.... I had a sunburst body laying around (could be a Squier body as well) and stumbled upon a Squier neck with the big headstock. So the idea of a 70s-vibes Strat capable of doing some jazz was born. A challenge since I don’t like Strats for jazz at all! I play a 1950 ES-125 or a Gibson ES-333 for that... but I think I managed! For me the trick was using a .1uF tone cap (like Fender did from ‘54-‘62 as well) and stringing it with heavier flatwounds (.011). The rosewood fingerboards helps too I guesss! Neck and bridge pickups are Custom Shop 54s, bridge is an 80ies Fernandes ‘grey bottom’. Here’s the result: And this is what she sounds like: You like?
