However, there's some things about it that might help me at least have some idea what it is. - cherry burst (afaik, somewhat uncommon for Strats) - two-post bridge - rectangular bridge saddles - microtilt hole (no...

    Guitar body? Warmoth, Guitar Mill, Allparts??

    Hi everyone, I'm thinking of building a partscaster and interested in an unfinished two piece alder body (vintage style). I am considering of finishing the body with acrylic lacquer (nitro spray paint are difficult to find in New Zealand). I am considering either Warmoth, Guitar Mill or...

    Have a strandberg Salen and kind of miss the strat tone as opposed to the tele tone I’m getting. Have a guy willing to trade his kiesel Zeus with three single coil setup for my strandberg salen deluxe. I know my guitar is worth more but I want the strat tone. What should I do?

    Modifying Custom Shop Strats? Is this a fake?

    I am in contact with a seller in my area that is selling a 2012 custom shop strat. Apparently it has all the paperwork, but there are 2 things about it that are questionable to me: first, the guy replaced the neck with a worn custom shop neck, and he had it repainted to be a burst (apparently to...

    NGD: The most gorgeous super strat I've ever seen in person

    I had been looking around for a unique guitar with strat sounds, a humbucker, and something to really let me explore the world of floating trems more. And after weeks of hunting I stumbled across this gem. 1980's (I think '86) Peavey Impact 1. Look at how pretty she is. Just bought her last...

    Anyone prefer SINGLE COIL bridge rock tones over Bridge Humbucker??

    I normally prefer playing a Humbucker guitar for overdriven Bridge pickup rock tones. I currently own an SSS Strat, an Epiphone Sheraton (335 style semi) with mini-hums and a Vintage Brand V100 LP clone. Of course the LP sounds massive on the bridge pickup with overdrive and the mini-humbucker...

    HSS Strat - volume drop in position 2 and 4 only at E string

    Hi everybody, I have a HSS Strat type guitar. Using position 2 ( and 4 with the hunbucker splitted) I am dealing with a significant output/volume drop. But not the general one, the volume drops only at the (bass) E string. Rest of the strings are fine. Also position 3 (middle pickup alone) is...

    Warmoth Build - Tips?

    I've just gone through the process of planning a warmoth build and I'm just wondering what I need to know for final assembly. Last year I built a partscaster and did all of the painting and finishing myself, but have decided to forego that process this time. I'm just wondering what I need to...

    JTM45, Fuzz Face, Strat and Band Mix

    Will the combination of a JTM45 (Mojotone e34l's) Fuzz Face (JHF1) Strat (HSS) VOX Wah a little spring reverb have any problems cutting through a band mix with 2 guitars? Provided I use no other pedals, od's, treble boosters and just ride the guitar volume and tone knobs? Have You Experienced?

    Help! Strat volume knob is basically useless below 8

    One thing I don't have much experience with is swapping guitar electronics. I've just never messed with it much. Usually the stock ones work just fine for me except I have one strat in particular that seems to kill most of the volume once the volume knob drops below 8. At 10 it's loud and clear...

    Ceramic single coil pickup builders

    Hey all, I recently played around with a friends cheapo Japanese strat and found that I really liked the pickups. They reminded me of some other 'lower end' strat types that I liked the pickups on in the past. With the volume rolled down they have attack but are round and bouncy. With the...

    help: my strat doesn't quack!!

    So basically I have a partscaster that doesn't quack. The bridge position sounds more like a shrill humbucker, though that's mostly because of the pickup and I'm pretty happy with that sound anyways. Positions 2 and 4 have barely any discernible quack and NONE of the pickup positions (1-5) have...
