And then there
All these guitar have been modified for playing
live. The only possible regret will be the mahogany Strat which
500 were made, but saddle the difference in pickups power between
the original Shawbucker and gen 3 pickups were so great I decided
to do a two humbucker Srat.
American Strat "Spot"
Bought this guitar and it looked
like someone played it for a month and tucked it under a bed
for several years. The color is Inca silver which yellowed over
the years. The name spot came about because of a chip in the
finished that I gave a luthier the impossible task of trying
to color match a paint color. Though you can't see it unless
you are up very close, there is a spot where the color match
is slightly off! The two changes are Fender locking tuners and
Duncan classic stacks.
This is a 2015 limited run of
of 500 Guitars. Two piece body, made of Mahogany - coming in
at 7.5 pounds. Since I have 3-Stratocasters, I wanted to do
a change up the Electronics. This guitar kind of pays homage
to Jimmy Herring, sporting 2-humbckers. (Two Duncan Pearly Gates
Pickups).THis guitar is warm and spanky! Just love it. I could
not find a color name other than "Mahogany Burst",
which I have to find out from fender if that is really what
it is called!
2004 American Strat
In mint condition that I purchased
used. There were a few changes made to the guitar. A cream pearl
pickguard. Fender Generation 4 pickups (I hate 60-cycle hum)
and Fender Locking tuners which gives it more stability using
the trem. Great sounding guitar with Classic Looks!
