    I have a 70's reissue that I bought with a few mods, pickguard/ IMG_1563.JPG IMG_1562.JPG knobs. I planned on changing back to original, but the changes grew on me and in my opinion looked nice. So I left it alone. Has this happened to others? Pictures are greatly appreciated. Especially if you have a non modified version of this guitar. Happy early St. Patrick's to all those that partake in the fiesta!

    Very nice. I think the pickguard throws it off a bit. My opinion only mind you......

    I was thinking the same thing. I think it would look better with a tortoiseshell or pearloid pickguard. Just my opinion.

    The p/g I could take or leave but that piece of wood with those knobs are a real turn on

    Looks decent, better than stock which would have been all white. My favorite PG on natural is black though.

    I’ve been gasing for a tremolo equipped Stratocaster to be the sister to my hardtail, but at the prices for originals in the condition I want I’m going to have to buy a reissue. Change the plastics and possibly add the bullet TR.

    Looks good to me. Kind of Funk like.
    Here's a pic of my natural Strat. I find the tort guard gives it a sober/unexciting look. But that suits me best. The rosewood fretboard might possibly be a factor here too.

    Love it. Where did you get those knobs and selector tip?

    that looks great to me!!! I'm in the process of building a natural ash bodied 3 P90 strat partscaster that is going to have a Rosewood fretboard. At first I wanted to do a maple board on it but the more I looked at it mocked up with the neck I already had the more I liked it. Hopefully it won't be long before I get the last couple parts needed.

    @6stringnate I just realized the PG and back plate are abalone. First glance I thought it was mother of toilet seat.

    Me Sneaky, I don't know where the knobs or selector tip came from. I bought this guitar as you see it. I do like the look of Yves guitar, cause I'm a rosewood guy, this is my only maple board Strat (out of 7). This guitar has really grown on me and I almost always want my guitars stock. I think I'll keep her in the stable.

    I like it. It is unique - and that is a plus for me. Some feel that a guitar should be "original". Maintaining value as a collectible would be my only pressing reason to keep a guitar absolutely original.

    That said, I don't do much modding myself - I just get stuff that is already unusual in some way. Like a 1983 hardtail Strat:
