Got one of these as a bag of bits that had been thrown together with a knackered, plywood body!?!?! (the original body had been mashed!). Threw the ply away, then bought an '89 MIJ body (Nice lump of Alder in red) and put it back together. Well, I hated it. After a lot of messing about, the action wouldn't go down, the "twang" from the singles didn't so anything for me, so I chucked it in a bag and left it rotting in the corner. Then, last week..............I dig it out (for my every-so-often play; I do it with all my axes), clean up the sound on my amp (I "gained it" previously) and......BANG.......loved it.....SRV/Floyd/Frusciante tones a plenty........Played it for hours, then went back to my '70 GT/'90 Standard thrashing. Didn't get the action too low, but it didn't seem to matter. I was amazed at the soul in her tone. I did replaced the pups some time ago with a new set of Fender Hendrix's, but ........Yeehaw. So I now have a metal guitar (my '90 ebony Standard), rock/blues machines (both my '70 Deluxes) and a blues/Floyd/Frusciante maker (my Strat)....As well as the remainder of my "collection". Anyway, to the point....Anyone else got an MIJ and what do you think? I'll post pics later.
