    Hey everybody.
    Definite Strat fan since I got my first Squier in '84 (used alder body model... Wish I still had it)... I have an '86 MIJ '70s model (my avatar pic and yes that's Rick Derringer's sig there) that is an ongoing project... It's on it's 3rd set of pickups (It's had Seymour Vintage with a Custom in the bridge, Lace Sensors... Blue/gold/gold, and now '57/'62s) Vintage style bridge (saddles replaced with Graphtech String Savers), Graphtech nut, an early '80s 5 way switch, cap on the volume, .22 cap on the neck tone and a .15 on the middle/bridge tone (I rigged the bridge pickup to it). More mods coming but I'll do a separate post on that. I also have a '96 Candy Apple red Lone Star Strat. Stock with the exception of the middle pickup which died (under warranty at least) which got replaced by another neck pickup (oy!). I do have plans for that as well though. I run them straight into an '84 Marshall JCM 800 split channel 100 watt combo. I'm having a '73 Deluxe Reverb chassis resurrected. It's going to be put into a Mojotone head cab (purple levant with ox blood grill) and it will be pushing a matching 2x12... Anyhoo...
    Cheers!

    Welcome from about 20 miles down the road. And just across the Milford-Old Town bridge when I'm at work!

    Hmmmm... Drinkwater's Auto or Off the Wagon?... I'd say the "Stagger" Inn but that's long gone
