    Didn't start out trying to copy a Big Apple Strat - just when I was done I realized it had the same vibe.

    Originally the other parts were in a thin body - maybe a Bullet? - aged oly white, but I already had 3 other white strats, so jumped when I saw a full sized black strat body for sale.

    Had to do some routing to fit the 'buckers - sporting a Seth Lover in the neck and a Custom 5 in the bridge. The Seth is actually very straty sounding, and the Custom 5 is super powerful and crunchy.

    Full block MIM trem - neck is off my very first strat, an '89 American Standard - very thin neck and the frets are worn out, but it's got nostalgia going for it, and the high powered bridge pickup hides a multitude of sins...

    looks good to me. love tortoise/black or white. like your pedalboard... can't say I agree with everything there but the delux mem man is the most musical delay ever created. think I see a klon and some strymon there so... nice taste.
