Thanks Diggey. I'm quite happy with it! It was a long road to getting it right for ME though. I originally had a Warmoth Boatneck on it that I got off a guy on the TDPRI. It was a Vintage Modern with 22 frets and they were huge to boot. I got it at a great price so I jumped. Lesson learned? I MUST have a Total Vintage neck with the small Fender wire (6230)!
I also had my typically favorite Strat pickups in it, the Fender 57/62. I've been dedicated to them for years. For some reason they just didn't do it for me in this guitar. When I piut the DiMarzios in...BINGO. They just make the Strat BIGGER and it responds beautifully, it really "jumps".
Anywho its always "to each his own" but it's a formula that turned this guitar into a favorite!
Thanks for looking, and your comments.
