30 years is a long story, life, career, etc got in the way. I have liked what I have seen in posts so here I am. I am learning all over again but this time I am doing so on a strat, or at least what I hope is a strat. My acoustic 12 sits mournfully on the wall. I just brought it back to life. I have had it longer than my wife. Maybe I am retreading a tired question, but the more research I do the more indecisive I become about what I found yesterday. It is a strat style. Some things seem correct and other leave me scratching my head. The neck has been replaced so I believe. I question the decals on the head. I am trying to determine how much of this guitar is Fender if any. The first thing I thought was to run down the serial number. Whooops, the neck has been replaced. No serial number on the head. The replacement neck feels good, the fret ends are smoothed, the finger board and neck is birds-eye maple. Not exactly the wood of choice for fakes. The bridge pickup is a Seymor Duncan mini humbucker. The other two pickups are normal strat fair. The volume on tone knobs have been replace with chrome set screw knurled knobs. Again, more cost than I would expect on a fake. It has a two screw tremolo bridge with machined saddles. And the last upgrades is a roller nut at the head and locking tuners with the Fender 'F' on them. Oh and the strap posts are a quick release type. Honestly, I bought it for the neck and tuners if the rest of the guitar is junk. But the more I read here in this site, the more my theory that this is a strat that has been customized. So what forum would this post be best served?
