    Squier Strat - 2021 Bullet Build with Nighthawk p'up (CII ICS Serial)

    This is a partscaster I built from a 2021 Bullet Strat neck. This became the second guitar I owned (which infected me with GAS). I built this as a standard SSS Strat late 2021, but as time went on I started getting crazy ideas. I tried combining two different selector switch setups (the...

    Can anyone explain this to me?

    Seems to fit the category of "other". Specific questions are WHY would someone do this to a guitar? And what exactly would make anyone think this is worth that kind of money?
