one of my fave custom shop strats along with the gilmour black strat. NICE
Thanks brother, they sound killer too, the pups they use in the vibes are the real deal, nice bright alnico 3's on the 50's and slightly warmer midrangy alnico 5's on the 60's, the only bad components on those are the switch and pots, swap them out and you've got a winner for cheap!
Those come with Alnico 3's and Alnico 5's? Damn! If you look at my first post in this thread, that white Strat has an Alnico 3 in the bridge and an Alnico 5 in the neck, and they are some of the best single coils I have ever heard. I almost like them more than my Texas Specials which cost five times the price.
The blue one is a recent MIM Standard with stock Tex-Mex pickups, a Wilkinson three-saddle compensated bridge, and a GFS pearloid pickguard. I had to do considerable 'fitting' to make the pickguard work, but the bridge was WONDERFUL!!!
The sunburst one is a 1998 Nashville model with all the original pickups removed. I installed a set of Noiseless stacked humbuckers with a genuine Fender three-way switch, and a Genuine Fender aged pearloid pickguard.
The Esquire is a new Classic MIM model that I bought from Brett at Eddie's. I replaced the pickup with a Rumplestiltskin 7K model, and a Callaham black Bakelite example which is vintage correct, down to the 'paint can' on the back side.

Damn Frails, I wanna play those! Do you live in Arizona by chance?
Seriously? Damn, I live up in Anthem. Lemme play your guitars!
The Super V is like a floyd that doesn't need to destroy your guitar's neck ??
yup the super v is a no "chopping" required drop in locking trem!
1974 Musicmaster neck on an unknown origin Mustang body. Kinman woodstock pickups wired with a 3-way switch for neck / both in series / both in parallel.
