    Thanks! I'm with u on that, love those headstocks.

    Gunslinger is a recent term. This guitar is from the 80's. They had two lines in those days (like MIM vs MIA), the original ST III (mine) and the NJ series. If u shop for one, I'd try to get an ST III, it was their best at the time.

    Series 10 body/neck---MIM Fender loaded pickguard and bridge, chinese tuners and jackplate, neutrik jack. The guitar was free, and I had everything else on the shelf. I had to buy a nut (GraphTek), and some pickguard screws---total out of pocket including strings---$20! Total cost of everything under $50! Best playing (and cheapest) guitar in my collection!![​IMG]

    I will always prefer my partscaster builds because I can decide what body/neck woods, pickups and hardware that will go on my guitar and what tones it will produce.

    Sammick. Not really fair, since they made the MIJ strats for Fender at the time. Here's one with a Fender S series headstock neck on it.

    When I bought it, it had a pointy Sammick style headstock which I didn't care for. The pickups were potted, and sounded pretty darn good, but the white PG didn't really match with the black HS.

    It's news to me if they did.

    I'd never heard that either. I came looking for a thread like this because I also like the older, unusual Samick Strats. Came across this on the Cincinnati CL today. It's an ugly color but I kinda like it. If it was closer I'd grab it.

    I like that colour. Is it metallic?
