I've just ordered a set of these for my parts Strat, because I'm hoping to build something nice and 50s/traditional sounding.



They seem be built with attention to detail (embossed flatwork is neat) using the same components everyone else uses. Best bit is, a full set was 38 inc postage!

I bought the flat set, because I like all my strings to be the same volume. Will report back when they arrive.

Very interested in this as I'm contemplating a new set for my Strat...

Sounds like a good deal, is your parts strat the sunburst / black one?

This one. I used to like a lipstick in a strat, but it's not as good as full-size lipsticks in a Danelectro (which I already have). I thought the black anodised aluminium scratchplate would be cool, but I'm sure it makes the guitar seem too bright and even rattley. So I'm putting a proper set of strat pickups in there with a white pickguard. Plus the black guard makes me think of Gilmour Shocked

I'm never happy with Strats. I bet I swap the neck for and Allparts vintage-style one (not a massive fan of med-jumbo frets and I'm undecided about maple fretboards) and swap the body for a hardtail... etc etc

The only two things I'm sure I like about it are the vintage Schaller M6 tuners and the Oak Grigsby 5-way switch.

Oh, I appreciate that the Burns next to it is a perfectly good Strat. However Stacey has commandeered it for use with alternate/strings missing tuning.

Yeah they're good pick-ups. Nothing to compare them to though! They're so cheap just go for it. Seem well-made, and I like the red fibreboard. They're potted in beeswax a bit roughly though. Think there was some bits of bee in the mix.

Black and white, which is a bit Bill Crogan, but all strat looks have been done really.

That strat combo always makes me think of the Barney Sumner True faith strat.
