    Got it all back together just now. Bought a brand new MIM Fender term unit for it at Sam Ash because I'm pretty sure the one that came on it wasn't original. I used the 2017 American Professional V Mod loaded guard and I couldn't be happier. I knew with the amount of fret wear on this that it had been a player for someone in it's past, and it went right back together with zero problems. Got the action lower than I usually do just because it would go there. This may quench my thirst (for now anyway) for the MJT purple Strat I've been lusting after.

    I'm actually going to go with a cream pearl guard to soften up the look a bit, but I have to get one off ebay and I was impatient yesterday so went with what I had.

    I love that color! From time to time Fender has has some pretty cool colors on their MIM instruments, which often don't get talked about.
