What are you playing?
06/05/16 at 06:45:43
 
This is my Strat.
I've modified it a bit.
I love the sound of Strats but they have always been difficult for me to master.  Gibsons are easier for me but I feel Gibson style guitars tend to hide flaws.

Nice looking Strat, I love Fender sunburst finishes. I'm the opposite, I naturally feel Strats, struggle with Gibson scale guitars. But the struggling makes for slightly different playing, which has its plusses.

I have a Custom Shop Classic Stratocaster that looks a lot like this one of yours, but has a maple fingerboard and a beautiful birdseye maple neck and fingerboard at that. Probably the best playing Strat I have, though I prefer the tone I get from the tone wood and pickups I have in my black limba bodied and wedge neck and fingerboard Warmoth Strat with Seymour Duncan Cool Rails and a Hot Rail stacked hum buckers.

This is my first attempt to fix my problems with the Strat; my Warmoth creation.
This is to Gibson scale.
12" radius.  This makes bends alot smoother for me.
Hardtail.
It feels like a Gibson but sounds like a Strat.
I've got one more creation that I am working on.

I modified the guitar; removed the P90 and installed a Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates humbucker.  It sounds so much better.
