I got a good deal on this one and figured it would be more of a collector than a player, but I really dig it! It's almost all original. The previous owner changed the pickups, pots, etc. but he used a complete, wired up pick guard, so only a couple solders disturbed. There's a LITTLE slop in the neck pocket that would allow a little misalignment if the screws are loose, but nothing like some I've seen where the high E could run right off the fingerboard. Pickups are killer. Sounds like Little Wing on the neck PU and Anson Funderburgh on the middle...as a Strat should. Even the bridge pickup has a bit of girth to it...not too thin. Neck is 60s/70's thin, but not a toothpick. Feels good. My digital scale disappeared (communal living!), but I'm guessing right about 8#. Pretty good for its vintage. Hardly a scratch or a ding on this one. Swirl marks in the paint. Former owner was clearly a polisher and not a player.
