TRADED FOR 2011 FENDER EMPRESS TELE IN HONEY BURST - Fender Tropical Turquoise Strat body from the Limited Edition 2012 AVRI '62 Strat (lightweight), finished in nitrocellulose lacquer - B. Hefner lic by Fender replacement Strat neck: SRV Profile (Large Asymmetrical profile) Maple w/RW board & imitation clay dots 9.5" Radius 6105 Medium frets Single adjust truss at heel Bone Nut Neck finished in shellac, nitro lacquer on headstock face - Hardware: Wilkinson/Gotoh Vintage style vibrato with push-in arm Wilkinson/Gotoh Vintage Style locking tuners Genuine Fender Amer. Std String Tree Genuine Fender '62 Strat Mint Green Pickgaurd w/aluminum shield Genuine Fender "F" stamp neck plate (not period correct I know!) - Pickups: Dawgtown Custom '62 Alnico Strat set, aged w/hand beveled poles - Case: Hard-shell Brown Poodle case (very well built) - Weight: 7#5oz. I built this as my personal gigging guitar and did all the work on it (besides the Fender body of course). Frets were filed and crowned; bone nut blank carved, slotted and polished; finished the neck (shellac is not rubbed out, headstock is polished out with decal buried in nitro lacquer). Loved the body so much I parted out the original guitar and kept it to build this one. Very lightweight and vibrant. I love Dawgtown pickups personally and I replace all of my guitars pups with his stuff. Neck and middle pickups currently wired backwards to get the NECK/BRIDGE combo in position two (I'll re-wire it standard if requested). Body has plenty of dings, marks and scratches (this was a gigging guitar), but nothing structurally wrong with it. Nitro lacquer on headstock cracked (probably because the shallac sealer shrunk underneath it), looks kinda cool to me. I love this vibrato system. IMO: it is super-stable...like Floyd Rose stable...you have to aggressively crank the bar a ton before it goes out of tune. Besides the string tree it keeps the vintage-vibe. Asking $1000 PP and shipped in CONUS. I will consider parting it out and possible trade offers. FEEL FREE TO ASK ANY QUESTIONS and THANKS FOR LOOKING!!!
