here is my strat


Fender_01.jpg


early '90's SRV neck, 62 RI body, Fralin vintage hots, all Callaham hardware. Gotoh locking tuners.

I got 1 of each length trem arm from Callaham, it's cool to mix & match. I think I like the medium the best though

My Mexican '98 Jimmie Vaughan. RS kit and mint pickguard. The rest is stock. Taken some beating since this pic, but I love the pickups and the neck profile. Besides my Gibsons, this is the guitar that needs to be in my live setup. Also I don't need my Strat to be a CS, as it's a workhorse. The Gibsons are more refined, so that's were I go "higher" :peace2

Black Road Worn 50's body with 90's CIJ neck and 57/62 pickups
Inca Silver Road Worn body with 80's MIJ neck and CS 69 pickups
The Edge signature Strat

The CIJ/MIJ necks are both labeled STB-67 on the heel. They are super-narrow at the nut (40mm) and have tiny vintage frets.

Since the pic was taken, the temporary black graphtec nut on the silver strat has been replaced with a white bone nut.

For the first time in recent memory I'm down to one Strat - gasp!! Haha. But it's a good one. This is the one guitar that I'd run back into a burning building to save though (knock on wood). Complete mutt - '99 American Standard that I had to get a new neck for eventually because the original one developed a nasty warp. Custom Shop '69 pickups. It was my first "real" guitar though. I remember the day I bought it - I was walking through GC and they had about 20 of these sitting on stands at the front of the store - they were on sale because (if I remember correctly) the new "American SERIES" was about to come out. I guess this one just called to me like a rescue dog.... :)

My Jeff Beck inspired strat, with some nice specs. This was always a dream of mine to do. I wanted a big, fat, clear tone, and i got it. Musikraft Fender licensed O/W alder body and quartersawn maple neck 10-12 compound radius. Clay markers, jumbo frets. Jeff Beck heel. LSR nut. Bare Knuckles EVHII pu's. '50's wiring, PIO cap and calibrated pots. Gotoh vintage style locking + staggered tuners. Killswitch. A braz fingerboard and a modded Bladerunner trem (correct steel block, s/steel arm and KTS titanium saddles)!

I have only one Strat, and besides a nearly identical '59 I've played, it's the best one I've ever played. Oddly enough, it's a Mexican Road Worn 50s Strat that's all stock except for a steel tremolo block. Something about the way it's finished, the neck shape, and the sound is just exactly what I look for in a Strat. I've owned a Custom Shop Strat and a Scott Walker Strat style and this is by far my favorite. I looked all around Nashville to find a Strat in any price range that I liked as much and couldn't find one. She's a keeper, that's for sure!

Yep, they rock.:yah
