    I love those old Tokais... They were bang on, and I love the cheeky Tokai logo made to look like a Fender logo.

    I bought this 1989 62' AVRI last year. I never cared much for the color combination. I bought this guitar from another local guitarist because of the tone and the deal I was getting. Black definitely grew on me though. 0.jpg

    I've always had my Black Strat; been fashioning it into a Gilmour inspired beast for a long time, though it's uniquely mine.

    My Blackie started out as a stock Affinity

    Then the magic happened:
    Fender TexMex pickups
    GPR bridge and big steel block
    CRL 5 way switch
    CTS 250k pots
    Switchcraft jack
    Orange Drop cap
    Black/White/Black pickguard
    Black knobs, rear cover, switch tip and jiggle bar tip
    Black Tusq XL nut
    Roller string trees
    Fret level, crown and polish
    Dressed fret ends and rolled fingerboard
    D'Addario 10's
    Plays and sounds real nice now!

    That's it next to my wife's Torino Red Mini Strat on the workbench

    MIM that I got in 2000. Just recently got back into playing and decided to upgrade it a little. Doesn't look too bad to have been case kept for 17 years.

    Fender pickguard loaded with CS Texas Specials (added a few years back)
    Bladerunner bridge
    Fender F style vintage split post tuners

    I'm slated to join the club tomorrow. Picking up a MIM Fender Squier Series locally. It has a serial number starting with MN4, if I'm making out the picture correctly. Let's hope she has the neck I've been dreaming of!
