Here are my Strat guitars... This one is a carvin bolt with maple neck and fretboard. Has a Wilkerson modern bridge. Has lollar black face pickups. locking tuners and Graphtech nut The fender is a mim with rosewood board. locking tuners, suhr pickups, Wilkerson bridge, graphtech nut and string tree, 500k volume pot and tone pot for the humbucker and a 250k pot for the neck and middle. I also put in pio caps. The carvin has a more mellow tone when unplugged. The fender is really snappy. They both resonant very well. Both a very clear when plugged in. The fender neck has a radius while the carvin is flat. I really like the carvin fretboard. I ended up with Schaller locking tuners in the fender. I really like them.
