    Silverfox; you like to torture people huh ? lol ;)

    it's one of the nicest strats I've seen. Maybe the nicest one. Even the neck seems to have this little nice grain.

    That may be the coolest idea for a pick guard I have seen in a very long time. Did you make it or purchase it somewhere?

    Cool looking guitar, too!

    A question for anyone who would care to chime in (my intent is not to hijack this most excellent thread)

    I realized I rarely/never use the whammy bar on my Strat and am thinking about decking the floating bridge

    Any appreciable difference in playability or tone?

    A few opinions would be appreciated :thumb:

    Do it, I set all my strats like this. Decked. The thing is that I do not put a piece of wood between the block and the body, you cand do that too.

    Any difference? Tons. On my strat, I noticed that a decked bridge means more sustain (on my guitar), and pretty much a more powerful tone. Sounds less , let's say, woblier and vibrating than before, which I love.

    More sustain, better tuning stability

    Downside? You dont have whammy bar

    Choose wisely...I prefer having the bridges on my Strats float no matter if I use the whammy or not (usually not) but its set up just in cast for that rare song where I need to pull out the bar and go Ritchie Blackmore crazy
