Hello everyone, I've just purchased a Vintera Road Worn 50's Strat HSS SBL in new condition (with stickers) from a second-hand store (with good return policy) for a steal price (750$). The guitar is stunning, very lightweight, and has a neck profile that I love. The only problem is that the...
Hey guys and gals, help me pick out a strap for my new Mod Shop Strat. Choices at the Qualtrics link below.
[EDIT] Be sure to hit the arrow at the bottom of the poll to record your results!
See this video:
What is this clicking sound coming from? Is it from the bridge plate hitting the body? Or maybe the bridge plate slipping on one of the screws? It doesn't seem like the tremolo block in the back cavity is touching anything, so I don't think it's from that.
How can I fix my...
Any Buddy Holly fans out there? I’ve been hunting for an early 50’s ash body, maple neck strat for a while and well, finally… “Great success!” - Borat.
Serial #: 8571 (adding up to 21, hence why I call it “BlackJack”)
Body date: 12-54
Neck date: TG-1-55
Picked this tweed case up recently and did a lot of research on the old strat cases and the reissues. Couldn’t find much that looked like this one. No markings on it anywhere. I saw somewhere that it might be an older vintage TKL but not quite sure. Any help in identifying is greatly...
Hi, all. I have a 77 Stratocaster that I bought new. I know folks like to bag on 70s strats, and while mine is not without faults, it plays and sounds great (non-original pickups).
Within the first year of ownership, the trem arm hole threads became stripped out. Whenever someone asked to try...
This is going to be my first ever mod and I ordered the Ultra Vintage Noiseless Pickups
Given that these are taller, will these fit? I plan to only change neck and middle. I can solder wires but I don't won't to do any sawing / cutting.
Hey guys - interested in getting an old 70s hardtail. Are any years between '75 and '80 any better?
Also - does a maple vs rosewood neck make as much of a difference on a hardtail? Wondering what board I should go for. I like how rosewood looks but I like how maple sounds...
This is a partscaster I built from a 2005 Affinity Strat neck. I found the neck at a music store, then went away with getting my own "Noventa" Strat going.

I'm trying to identify this Fender MIJ, and see what wood it's made from, etc. I'm not too familiar with the different Japanese models from this time so help would be appreciated. I have attached a picture of the headstock and body.
It has a vintage style truss rod, 11 hole pickguard...
Hello, this is my first post, I will be grateful for your answers.
I had doubts about the specs of my ST62 Japanese guitar Serial number R008849.
I only know that from the Serial it should be a ST 62 from 2004-2005.
I don't know what body material, pickups, etc.
If someone can help me I will...
I have a 2010 Fender American Special MIA Stratocaster (floating tremolo) that needs it's truss rod adjusted once a year. The neck gets bowed (concave). Why? Could it be that there is too much tension on the tremolo strings? I wouldn't really bother me to deck it, but I am wondering what is...
This is a partscaster I built from a 2021 Bullet Strat neck. This became the second guitar I owned (which infected me with GAS). I built this as a standard SSS Strat late 2021, but as time went on I started getting crazy ideas. I tried combining two different selector switch setups (the...
I’m itching to get an American strat in daphne blue with a rosewood board. It’s looking like this is a difficult find. Anybody know if the upcoming offerings will include daphne blue? I can’t do MOD shop either because they don’t ship to Canada.
Hi everybody, I just bought a 93-94 62 CIJ Strat and it's amazing! The dealer told me that this model has an alder body and American pickups. Is there anyway to know the spec level (low, premium etc.) from the letters that are under the neck? It reads H ST-62 Y. I'm attaching a pic.
I've never really liked rosewood fretboards on Strats. It felt like the dark color clashed with the body's paint instead of complementing it. That's why I chose a maple fretboard on my newer American Pro II Strat in Miami Blue. But I've been watching a particular YouTuber that does weekly...
I just bought a second hand American Vintage strat. I think I know what it is, and the serial number lookup from fender confirms it: a 57/62 thin skin limited edition stratocaster from 2010. It is, however, difficult to find any information online and the guy that I bought it from...
I recently picked up a MINT Fender Mod Shop Hardtail Stratocaster in sonic blue, and it is configured with in HH with Shawbuckers. I gave these a chance but they are nahbuckers for me.
I love the Beatles, Rolling Stones, (Hardtail shout out to Ronnie) and have whittled my choices down to the...
I’ve recently bought this beautiful American Original 60’s Strat. I must say I’m both impressed and confused at the same time.
Firstly it’s an amazing sounding and playing instrument but there are two things I’ve noticed they don’t bother me but it shouldn’t be like this for an...

I got a 3 way switch ( I need, neck / neck + bridge + Bridge )
Is this possible ¿any diagram around?
I gotta a Tele diagram, but that only has...
So... I'm out cruising on the eeeeb (ebay)... and I stumble across a listing for a Squier (by Fender) Hello Kitty fiddle... a pink one.. and they're asking just under 1K for it... ya know.. almost a grand... \then...
I searched the term Hello Kitty guitar and find there's a bunch of them both...
