    Partscaster body w/reverse bridge route?

    Does anybody out there know where I can find a light weight ash, right hand strat body with a reverse bridge pickup route. Thx in advance. I don't know why this isn't a regular option, I know I'm not the only one who thinks the bridge pickup is slanted the wrong way.

    Looking for a lighter weight Marshall (type) amp with some headroomto take on stage for jams and guest appearances. So far its DSL20cr , DSL15c , Studio 15 and JTM 30.

    PSA For those struggling with HR Deville drive sound.

    I had three Mullard short plates I bought of Ebay years ago kicking around and tried them out in my Hot Rod Deville 410. Big difference, the drive sound is now totally useable all the way up the dial. V2 was the most noticable for the drive channel. A Mullard reissue worked there as well, but...
