    Partscaster Build - Tokai MIJ Neck

    I have enjoyed the modular-style and versatility of the Strat design. I noticed how much I wanted to have a purple ST-type with that superstrat vibe.

    Posted a while back about this, I'm zoning in on what I want to do and am tossing it out again to see if I can get more specific detailed input. (I'm fully aware I'm not going to know until I do it, and that it's easy to swap pickups back if I don't like it, but I always try to avoid PITA...

    Hi, I am planning to upgrade to STK-S4, so can anyone tell me what are the main differences between Fender Texas Special and Seymour Duncan Classic Stack Plus Strat STK-S4? Since, there is no comparison on YouTube, I can only guess by single videos... loudness? mid's? other characteristics...

    Seymour Duncan Cool Rails vs. DiMarzio Pro Track (Bridge)

    Just wondering if anyone has tried these out in the bridge of their Strat. I'm looking for a moderate output humbucker unit to compliment the stock neck and middle single-coil's output levels and tone without routing the pickguard.

    NGD - Jackson SL3 Soloist

    I just won this beauty in an auction and I'm really pleased with it. I already own a 2018 SL3X, but this thing is a Japanese model from 2010, in great condition for the age too. It's a little heavier than my Indonesian SL3X, being Alder rather than Basswood and has much higher specc'd pickups...
