So a while back I got this Squier SE Strat for $30 just for the sole reason to have a mod base. Plus it was 30 bucks! I decided that I need to clear out some stuff so I am doing this mod/build to give to a very good friend whose been GASing for a hard tail Strat for a while as a gift. To start since he likes fatter necks with heavier strings I took the neck off of another SE that I had from another build and put it on after putting a set of 2 pin Squier tuners from my Showmaster Scorpion on it since I used the original tuners to repair another guitar. I didn't use the current tuners because I already filled, drilled and installed these earlier. I made the neck swap because the one that on on it in the pics is really thin and the one I'm putting on it is fatter. Then I pulled the bridge and related hardware so I could fill the hole. I got this block from Hipshot which they make for doing just this mod. Cost me $18 Turns out it's a pretty decent fit but will require some slight alterations and filling to be perfect. But it will work. The plan will be to make the guitar still look like a normal Strat with a trem by using the original bridge plate and screwing it down to the body and the filler block. Then I will drill the holes through the block and install a set of flush mount ferruls in the back tho make it a string-thru-body and cover it with a back trem cover when complete making a true sleeper. I will dig through and find a set of alnico P'ups that I have buried in a drawer to give it a sweeter voice. I'll post more pics as I progress. This is the first time I taken a trem out of a guitar. I normally am changing or upgrading them.
