    Ok, this is painful, but I just don't need all of these guitars around, so I'll put this out there.

    Neck: quartersawn maple with an ebony board. Masterbuilt by Jason Davis in the Fender Custom Shop
    Body: two-piece alder from Musikraft
    Bridge: Fender Custom Shop (like the locking American Deluxe trem)
    Electronics: Lollar Dirty Blonde set with CTS pots

    The neck is straight, plenty of room to adjust the rod, and the action can be slammed down low. When I first got the neck, it was back bowed. Brian Howard (@BHoward) pulled the frets, leveled the board, put in a compound 10-16" radius, and refretted. Simply amazing.

    The bridge is set as dive only. To float it, you'll need to route in front of the block to allow it to pitch forward during a pull up.

    The guitar rips and sustains amazingly well. Truly an amazing guitar.

    Fender never has built a true 7-string Strat. They've made some guitars in connection with Alex Gregory, but those have 24 frets and folks want $10k for them. Squier made some, but they are nothing like this.

    I'm happy to answer any questions.
