Got this in trade from h8mtv along with a cool phaser pedal he built. Right now it is custom and cool, but I think I will drop a PAF and Superdistortion in it. Also might pop it back to tort. I like that pickup combo a lot. Smile

I'm probably in a tiny minority, but I've never been a fan of tort on burst, so I'd keep the white (and the lipstick pup). Whatever you do, though, keep that F plate.

I worked on changing the pots to 1meg's and putting everything on the tort guard. It is looking good! I shaved down one of the blocks a little so that the toggle could fit in the original place. I left the blocks in case I wanted to change it back. (I am reserving the F plate for one of my Jaguars. Wink)

By the way, I like the single mixed with a humbucker, but I have three Jag-Stangs with that setup, so I wanted to do an H H since I don't really have one of those. Smile (Trying to have variety for sound options.)

is that an actual vista tort guard? it looks shitty, but it may be just the picture.

PAF + SD is win

The SD came. Smile Looks good. I am glad I didn't have to do any sanding to get the F-Spaced pickup to fit. Just waiting on the neck pickup now. Smile

Neck pickup came and I got straight to work. I really like the sound. It is just like I hoped. Action is super low without buzz which I really like. The black pickups on it look great to me. It is a really resonant body too. The strat tremolo has nice sustain. The heavy duty toggle is nice. Hard to bump it in to a different position by accident. Wink
