STRATOCASTER - MIM (1999/2000) - Luthier Upgraded
This beautiful sunburst Stratocaster, in excellent condition, has been expertly upgraded and enhanced.
    Pickups are Tonerider Surfari set TRS5 with alnico III magnets, scatter-wound coils and rwrp middle pickup. The standard five position switch is complemented with two pull on / push off pot switches.  Pull out the middle knob for "neck on", enabling any single, pair or all three pickups to be on in parallel. Pull out the volume knob for "bridge and middle together in series, giving a powerful humbucker type sound. Pull out both knobs for combined series/parallel options. This combination of pickup and switching works together really well, giving all the usual strat sounds plus a whole lot more, making this guitar very versatile.
    The rwrp middle pickup makes positions 2 and 4 hum cancelling, plus the electronics are completely and properly screened, making this guitar very low on noise.
    The tone controls are upgraded too. The lower knob is a master treble cut control with Fender no-load, serving all three pickups.  Fully clockwise, the control is completely removed from the circuit.  The middle knob is a master middle cut serving all three pickups, scooping out the mid-range.
    The tremolo block and bridge saddles have been upgraded to steel for improved tone and sustain.
    The body/neck joint has been snugly fitted for improved resonance.
    The fingerboard has been re-contoured to a 12" radius, and re-fretted with Fender medium jumbo frets. The action is really fast and comfortable.
    The nut has been expertly adjusted (to match the Fender 09 to 42 pure nickel wound strings fitted) and a Graph Tech string guide fitted.
    The back-plate has been upgraded to a better looking fender USA version.
    This special instrument is being sold complete with a good quality plush lined hard case, strap and lead. All for £600 ono.
