My long time friend/builder/tech guy who does all the set-up/tweaks on my guitars recently built me a Strat when I sold my one and only custom made Performance Guitar Strat that I had for about 25-30 years to a buddy who has wanted it forever.

Let me say I'm not much of a Strat guy but it's always nice to have one. This guitar is awesome. It's pretty much everything I would want from a Strat style guitar. Plays like butter and sounds great. Has very good single coils sound but can fatten up to be almost like a humbucker with the EMG David Gilmour set-up.

The paint work is what I would call the "kitchen sink". I stole the name from a buddy since the paint job has so much going on. Many layers of different custom paint and techniques.

Excuse the cell phone pics...

They look like older logo.
Could be? I'm no expert on EMG'S.

Very cool...Did you do the paint job? It looks like the color changes by viewing angle.
Thanks. Yes I painted it and yes it changes color depending on lighting and viewing angle.

Cool paint job. How was that done?
Thanks again. Readers Digest....Black, transparent flip flop/colorchange paint and a very limited special pearl flake and then clearcoat. Very expensive paint materials to say the least.
