I got my first strat (2017 American Professional SSS) about 1 year ago. Bought it new. I have absolutely fallen in LOVE with strats! I’ve been a Floyd Rose style user since about 1984. Since getting my strat, I don’t even want to touch my Floyd. I’ve got a pre-wired set of pickups and guard coming from Bare Knuckle Pickups and can’t wait to hear them in my new found love. That being said, I want another one to add to the arsenal and I want to get some advice on what to get next. I have been seriously considering an MJT kit build to my specs. However, I’ll have almost $1600 into that build and I know the potential downsides IF I ever did want to sell it. That’s not my main concern though. Honestly, I’d like to get into it for less than $1600. I really want a Sonic Blue lightly aged strat. What strats should I consider looking at (used or new) that come in Sonic Blue that would be worth swapping pickups and sending it to MJT for light aging (assuming it’s not already)? If it’s used and a good price, I would even consider a new bridge, pups and refret if needed if I can still get in at a lower price. Quality and tone are key – not price. But if I can get the guitar I want for cheaper, why not! A little undecided if I want a rosewood or maple board. Love maple boards but that sonic blue seems to pair real well with rosewood.
