    Here she is. To me its the ultimate Strat! Its got an American Deluxe Strat neck, American Body, Boogie rail bridge with Graph-tec saddles, Lace Sensors, Vitamin Q cap, CTS pots, on/on switch for the bridge pickup, Sperzel locking tuners. Everything on it is black! I dyed the fretboard to an ebony look. She sounds amazing!! Might be my new #1!!!!

    I love them! There very balanced! The bridge screams Les Paul, while the neck and middle are Strat all the way!

    It's not really my style but I have to admit it looks pretty slick.

    That thing reminds of the Batmobile from the TV series (a good thing). Have fun with it!

    I've used these boggie rails before. I LOVE them! They always return to pitch. I deck all mine so theres no way it can be wrong! :) The best part of them is they have zero movement from side to side. Thats where traditional terms seem to fail. They have just a little movement that can mess up tuning stability.
