    The madness continues. Originally I was looking for an american pro rw board, but this came up at a few hundred less. Seller sold me that easan 335 so I was confident it would be as described.

    - MJT light relic body (heavy checking)
    - unknown builder, highly flamed 22 fret neck 94-100 C (yet heel truss...)
    ​​​​​​- Suhr ML's
    - callaham bridge with brass block
    - kluson tuners

    Came with 11-48's and goes in for the deep clean, float the trem and 10-46's today. First impressions are good, though at 8lbs mostly due to neck I am considering an allparts 85-95 C for it.

      Ooooh that is great looking , looks great with the others, like it's meant to be.

      I want a good Strat and a LPC to complete my circle. Your group picture looks really fun.

            The idea is cool, just no idea how much I'd actually use the blend haha. I'm bad enough at using the tone pots...

            According to a member on the FAS forum, the body is likely a Hosco - the brand is new to me but solid Japanese parts it looks like.

            It's at the techs now, hopefully pick it up monday or tuesday. I told him "get it as close to a fender custom shop as you can" .

              Congrats! I've been itching for a decent strat for a while. That looks like a beauty!

                That's, uh, not the whole group (and that group is indeed a blast - mjt/allparts JM, prs S2 SC satin, PRS MC594, SC594 SH LTD)

                    Just got it back from my tech and holy shit this thing plays like butter. Whipped up a quick thing with the Fractal Plexi 50W 6CA7 in my strat preset:

                      Wow, that sounds great. Nice guitar!

                      Two separate tone controls is a useful feature on a Strat--I wouldn't switch out to a master tone. What you *should* do, however, is rewire it so the bottom tone pot is connected to the bridge pickup rather than the middle. It's useless for the middle pickup, but you can actually use a Strat bridge pickup by itself for a variety of things (including a surprising amount of chunk) if you have the ability to roll off some of the highs. Eric Johnson has his wired that way, and one of his tricks is to get a "humbucker-ish" sound in the 2 position by rolling off a bunch of the highs on the bridge pickup.

                        My tech had asked me about wiring tone for the bridge, and Im guessing I said to leave it haha. Im due to try some work on my jazzmaster with a friend, maybe I'll do it then.

                        I actually did get a really nice glassy tone on an ambient sound with the tone backed off on just the middle pickup as well.

                        Really excited to have a strat back in the stable. Gonna have to do an F type family shot when the last one arrives!
