    I wouldn't be so sure. This rotten cat has an affection for all things sinister.

    Yeah, thanx!
    I’m excited to have a strat to play with. It’s been a long time.

    I’m guessing 1.650”. I haven’t measured yet. It appears to be one of the few things that’s in ok shape.

    Thanx man! It’s not playable in the least as it is. It’s basically a garbage guitar right now. BUT NOT FOR LONG!

    The Squier Strat that I once bought untested was a big disappointment. Sold it very fast.
    I whish you luck with yours.
    Maybe I just was not patient enough.

    I've never seen a picture of Jeffrey Lee Pierce with an electric guitar that's not a strat.
    Congratulations!
    And longing to see the results of your planned mods too.

    Yes, he loved his white strat. I’ve seen pictures and videos with the occasional tele too. :)

    This is destined to become the perfect Strat to go with your cat. Paint the room black, and you'll never know where either one is located. ;):D

    You can even use black electrical tape over the pole pieces and under the pickup covers if you want to hide the silver color. Do they have black guitar strings? There are also ebony tuner buttons out there.

    Pickups installed and tested. Hum canceling in the second and forth position, so that’s cool.
    Black jack plate coming later this week. I also ordered some $16 locking tuners. Let’s see how bad they suck.
    I woulda splurged on better componants, but i decided to keep it cheap and see if I can’t make it an adequate player for under $100.

    I thought about making it a complete black out, and still might. For now I’m gonna live with the bit of chrome from the pups and the tuners. If this things worms it’s way into my heart, i may invest more cash into it.

    All set up, and sounds real good. She looks great from 10+ feet away.

    Right? It’s like there’s none more blacker!
    I could get a black bridge/whammy and black tuners.
    Maaaaybe down the line.
