A couple of days ago someone gave me a strat copy. It had messed wiring and 3 defective pickups (all metered as open). The 2nd tone control was wired as the volume and who knows what for the other two controls. I would have rewired it if the pickups were good. I had an extra MIM pickguard loaded stock so I rewired it so it would fit the routing which was open along the side opposite of the MIM. The original had 12 screws and the bridge saddles were messed up. I had some spare saddles from some squiers I worked on before and they were the same size as the ones on this guitar. I also replaced a rusty jack plate. The name on the guitar says "Cimac" and the neck plate says MIJ. It has a CBS style headstock and a sticker on the back from a music store in Belgium. It has a very nice neck and doesn't look bad for what it's been through. It has the usual signs, back plate screws not off set in the center and the dot space on the 12th fret is not right, and a bullet with no 3 bolt neck. The MIM pickguard lines up at the neck pocket but the bridge looks offset. The end result sounds pretty good and I am going to keep it since I made it lefty. Anyone ever hear of this brand or how old it is? The tuners are banged up so I need to see what I can replace them with.
