    That's my stereo project. The center pup is split so the top three strings have one output jack; the bottom three another. It's my answer to Neil Young's Stereo White Falcon. Very interesting to record with.

    I got the neck and body from a friend 4 or 5 years ago and had to scrape 3 coats of paint off it, replaced the frets ,custom S.S. neck plate original tuners, cut a new nut from a soup bone , Challaham bridge, pick guard and misc., Fralin vintage hot pickups, paint from Reranch.
    Got more money into this than any other build and I got the neck and body for free.
    But this is the only Strat I will ever need .
    She plays like a dream and I could not be happier :cool:

    That's cool. Record a solo using the two middle strings and pan it left and right. Then play it backwards with a sitar and fuzz bass:twisted:. :D

    This is my Cort Effector. It has built in effects like phase, delay, vibrato, distortion, chorus- all wonderfully terrible in their own way. Its the only guitar model I've seen with a "speed" knob to control the vibrato like waves in a sustained note.

    Funny... All of these features and it doesn't even allow you to select which pickup you are using. They are both on the whole time.

    I built the pickguard, had the tele control plate laser-cut, and put fender chickenhead amp knobs on there.

    Trashy garage guitar goodness.

    I have a '90's Peavey USA Predator too. Picked it up for $100 used, to replace my MIM Fender with similar specs (and one less fret, the Peavey has 22):

    Oops, forgot I had this one too. It's a GFS build with a blem body and neck. Never even did a decent set up on it, a new Gretsch showed up the day after I strung it up and this one got shoved into the closet...

    That SX pup arrangement is very unique. How does it sound?

    It reminds me of the M*A*S*H episode where (I think it was) Trapper ordered a new suit from a local tailor & he put the pinstripes horizontally rather than vertically.
