I saw this Fender Strat stripped-down, take-off body on Stratosphere and it really caught my eye. I didn't need another Strat (I have 3 others), but the price was right and I love the finish, so I ordered it. Then, of course, one needs a neck, so I ordered one of those... I had plenty of pickups, pick guards, and electronics to work with already (due to having done many mods in the past). I turned it into a "Triple Tele", which was cool, but ultimately, I just wasn't playing it. So I guess I didn't "bond" with that configuration. Then, last week, a lightly used set of T-Armonds showed up in the marketplace for a good price. Having one set of them in my D'Angelico, and really loving them, I decided to buy the pickups and then decide where I would put them to use. I installed them in a Sea Foam Pearl Tele of mine and they sounded great there, but I didn't think the bond was going to take hold there. Having seen Wes' (@BorderRadio) blue Strat, I thought what the heck... try the T-Armonds in the Strat. It happened last night, and this is the result: 2019 Fender Player Stratocaster Plus Top, 2018 Fender Classic Player '60s neck, T-Armond pickups (8k and 12k), 1M Volume pot, 1M tone pots (made No-Load), .015uf K40Y-9 caps. I like this set-up and can't seem to put the guitar down. Time will tell if the "bond" takes place, but I think it will. And if not, there's always my G6119T Tennessee Rose (which has Filter'trons in it now) which would be a great host for these pickups. Further adventures in mad mods... round and round we go... where it stops, nobody knows!
