Thanks again for all the helpful info. I appreciate the wealth of knowledge here. I figured I'd link a little video below so you guys can hear how it sounds. As embarrassing as this is, I spent all my savings on the guitar and I can't afford an amp at the moment, so this is the only time I've played it plugged in at a local Guitar Center. Hopefully someday I will be able to find a fully original pre CBS strat. But this one isnt too bad.
