    Wow, I probably would have just returned it but there was a time when I too would have took it on my own to get to the bottom of the problem no matter what or how long it took. I gotta respect your determination and recognize you are a step closer to being a master stratocaster technician. I'll bet your a pretty good mechanic too. Channel that determination into your practicing and your gonna be great. Congratulations on solving your problem.

    Yes. I have an '89 Strat Plus with the original Wilkinson roller nut. The tuning stability on this instrument is par none.

    That's better than being broke without a guitar ;)

    yeah, that's totally a thing. On my old strat I did that when I first discovered in the 70's stuff was adjustable (wow, who'd've thunk it!). A little knowledge is a dangerous thing. These days I use almost all blade pickups but I observe basically the same rules.

    I still have the silver tape over my 2004 Strat. I never use the whammy bar. It’s still in the case. I have an Axis with a Floyd Rose if I want to go crazy, but I very rarely use it.
