So I decided to forgo some of the fancier options even though adding them would not have changed the price. So I skipped roasted woods, quartersawn neck, compound radius, stainless steel frets, ect…
I can’t find my spec sheet for the build, but here’s the highlights:
-Fender 64 Strat neck measurements
-Relic. Canary Diamond over 3TSB
-Jescar Vintage Modern wire
-Nashville wiring with a pull/push bottom tone knob to turn on the middle PuP. 3-way blade
-Swamp Ash body
-Hand wound 61’ pickups
-Graphtech ratioed vintage style tuners
-Wildwood saddles to avoid pokey grub screws.
This one comes in at 7lbs 7oz. So a little under 7.5 pounds. I ordered it in February.
This has been a long time coming. All for less money than a high end MIA Fender.
Came with a nice strap and a battle tested high end soft case too. Hand built from scratch by one man.
