    I picked up this hot beauty from a longtime musician living in the city of Toronto. I installed a Seymour Duncan SSL-3 Alnico V pick up in the bridge position for maximum Strat force. It even has a brass nut. It sure has character.:)

    Looks like a fun project but what is the hex key holder on the back of the headstock for?

    Character, yes! I'm curious not only about the hex key holder, but pretty much everything else. Any idea what kind of guitar this is? I'm nowhere near as sharp as many folks on ST about this, but nothing about that guitar looks at all Fender to me. Doesn't mean it can't be a great guitar. I'm just curious what it is. Any ideas?

    The hex key holder is there on the back of the headstock because there used to be a locking system on the neck. You can see from the 4 holes on the headstock close to the nut where the locking nut was.

    You have quite literally posted my favorite non-standard finish. I love "Flamed" finishes :sneaky:

    I sort of dig the flamed finishes like on one of my other Squier Strats. I see a common theme happening.;)

    I think I remember that guitar being on Kijiji about a year ago, in the Toronto area. It was advertised as a home built guitar, by the owner, or his father, and the asking price was around $800 CDN. The flamed portion of the body is new since then. It has also been put through more of a relic process since then. I remember the neck and headstock details. It was an interesting looking guitar in the ad, and not being sold as an original Fender. It had the same graphics on the headstock, tuners, missing hardware, Allen wrench stuff, etc.
