    Really nice looking guitar! I was going to give you a hard time for blocking that nice Wilkinson 2 point bridge but I can’t argue with the idea of that convertible Trem that locks when the arm is dropped. That sounds perfect.

    This is my 54 replica that I built a few years back. It’s accurate and has Custom Shop Abby wound 54 pickups. D0C98ECC-E9A9-4C1D-9656-9567AD95CBB2.jpeg 2B6AD567-F1D0-4856-821B-E46EEAACEE44.jpeg

    My one and only Strat, as I gave my old Kramer Focus copy to my son (he makes it sing!)
    MIM Standard with maple top, it had been hanging at my local mom and pop for a bit so they made me a nice deal a couple years back. Pickups are now Rose Robustas (had Keystones in when this pic was taken), trem parts from Callaham and KGC, locking Fender tuners, and upgraded wiring harness with bridge tone control.
    I like to set it up to float, took me awhile to get it to stay in tune but it does very nicely now with 9s. I still can't get over how good the Rose pickups sound, especially for the price. The Keystones were nice, but the Rose, wow, they sound like the Strat sound in my head.

    It's a fun guitar that I pick up when I want trem.

    My partscaster won a new rosewood neck!

    It turns from that:

    How are you going to change the neck on the mini version?

    My 2017 Corona, California limited edition Sandblasted Sunburst Stratocaster.

    The most weird and wonderful guitar in my collection.
    So vividly textured, and so deep and dark in colour and tones.

    I love love love this guitar.

    There’s my 1989 MIK Squier Stratocaster hanging out with my Tele and P-bass.

    Finish is Olympic White, nicely yellowed now. I changed the original white scratchplate, knobs etc to a real cheap Chinese set from eBay (black looks so much better, but I can’t help thinking I could have gone tortoiseshell...) and replaced the ceramic pickups with a set of vintage-style pickups from Alexander Priborya (very good value for money). There’s a thread over on Strat-talk where you can read all about it...

    If I'm in this thread, it was a long time ago, links probably dead. Here are some new shots. A pair of 2012 CS. '57 Candy Apple Red, and '63 Ice Blue Metallic.

    2016 Eric Johnson Rosewood, with Fishman Fluence pups. I need the noiseless, and the Fishmans sound amazing, IMHO. IMG_0964.JPG IMG_0141.JPG

    "Agave Blue", found on some MIMs (only?) seems to be nearly identical, too, FYI.

    I love the color, but not the vintage or aged ones. The yellowed clear coat makes it turn metallic sewage green. Or something.
