Hahahahahahahaha! Made my Tuesday, KF !!
This Strat is seeing a lot of playing time since I replaced the Vintage Noiseless pickups with a loaded Ultra Luxe pickguard. I love the tones. It’s bright and twangy with a pick and harmonically rich played finger style.

Waves are what makes the world go 'round.
Ride it while you got it!
i dont like maple necks now, but this combo is a win for me!
oh i’m riding it sir!! Im riding it! Hehe
I have my old '84 '57 AVRI and it sounds great, been playing it more lately. Also screwed together a partscaster with a big fat neck, Bootstrap pickups, and a couple little unobtrusive mods; very versatile. I haven't been playing Strats for a while but they do a certain thing which is pretty cool.
Nice! For sure that avri is nicer than my am standard!
i’m interested on getting HSS from Bootstraps. What did you get?
Its absolutely beautiful! Congratulations!
I have a bunch of Toneriders, a couple sets of the original AVRI pickups rewound by Lindy, and some odd one-off pickups. The Bootstraps are flatpole A2 wound a little hotter. I was going for that more midrangey early 70s thing. Something different, and it worked.
That's pretty dang close to my Jeff Beck! There's nothing sexier than a white on white Fender with a 'rosewood' neck.
Personally I prefer the pick guard to be lighter colored than the body, but that's just more white on whites for you. What I actually wanted to ask was: Is that a SD Hot Rails in the Esquire?
It was a GFS Lil Puncher XL. I played it a good bit but really wanted a more traditional Tele sound and ended up un-Esquire-ing the guitar. I couldn't enjoy it without the twang.
This is it now, which I call Esquire-ish, purely because the front PU (Lace Sensor Charlie Christian) is white and kinda blends in with the pickguard. Not really - I know. I have a MIM Fender neck with maple fretboard I will put on it in the near future, but I may end up going back to a darker fretboard. It has a GFS Fatbody in the bridge.
With a neck pickup ON/OFF switch I can get Tele sounds galore on my '98 American Std.
And I sure do love me other Strats.
Thank you sir! yes it is!
I'm wanting a bit of 60's flavor on the Neck and middle, and then have a 50's low output PAF on the bridge..
While the stock fat50's sound good on the bridge, Im wanting a bit more meat on the bridge side, enough to do some mean things..
Im also thinking about putting a Broadcaster tele pickup in the bridge position!
Beautiful white guitars sir!
oh yes! if the 2-point trem is good enough for Jeff Beck, it's good enough for me! hehehe..
Beautiful strats sir..
the MIM Wine Red color was my favorite color during that run.. I wish Fender did not retire that color on their standard models. it's beautiful!
i go back and forth......
oooo im liking my strat...... oooo im liking my tele....... i dont like this about my strat...... i dont like this about my tele....... i like my strat cuz of this...... i like my tele cuz of this...... its like a merry go round.
They both have their things. i can usually play my tele better and faster. i am more comfortable with a strat. the tele has more beef and sustain. but somehow the strat neck is smoother and clearer and the bridge is angrier.
i do this same exact dance with my p and j basses.
its frustrating and fun all at the same time. lol. i could go on about it. lol.
Cranked marshall & Strat and neck pickup…. Mmmmmm.. hot blues heaven then you get all the funky rhythm stuff too.
