I hand built this Strat guitar years back. It features custom Tone – Tone – Volume configuration. The first tone pot controls the neck and middle pickup and the middle tone pot controls the bridge pickup. I configured it this way so I wasn’t hitting the volume knob when playing hard. All wiring is CUSTOM and as follows:- One piece Alder body, Maple neck, Rosewood fretboard w/jumbo frets (frets are new, crowned, and polished)- Guitar entirely finished in Nitrocellulose – Body was done with Re-ranch black nitro years ago and was originally a “light” relic, but years of playing has slowly changed that, newer reliced neck was done with thin french polish under clear Nitrocellulose- Vintage Fender Stratocaster decals- Texas Special pickups- 250k CTS Neck tone pot (with vintage Silver Paper in Oil .047 capacitor)- 500k CTS Bridge tone pot (with vintage Green Paper in Oil .022 capacitor)- 250k CTS volume pot- Vintage 5 way spring selector switch (with custom Telecaster knob)- All vintage waxed cloth wiring- All GOLD hardware w/ vintage style tuners- Gotoh Left-handed tremolo bridge with vintage Steel block – I routed the guitar for a lefty bridge like SRV as I actually find a top tremolo arm more comfortable and easier to use.- Extremely thick and round neck profile – The neck is 1 inch thick from nut to body and has a very comfortable C shaped profile. Truss Rod adjustment is done from the heel near the neck pickup and the pickguard has been routed for easier access.- Right now, it’s strung with 13’s. The thicker neck allows any size strings so the neck will not warp with the extra tension. I prefer thicker strings, but if you don’t feel free to change it to whatever you want.- It also has a Zero fret added. I prefer zero frets, but if you don’t, it’s an easy switch back to a standard nut.This extremely custom strat sounds loud, chunky, and plays like an absolute beast. Naturally, with Texas Specials and the tone pot configuration (with separate capacitors), it allows for a greater variety of tones than most guitars. This is exactly why I built it this way…for versatility. It’s a one-of-a-kind guitar that your likely to never see again.
