    Ok, everyone who's ever had a Guitar Fetish Xaviere Stratocaster and looked under the hood. I'm interested in knowing about bodies produced within the last couple of years.

    How are the bodies routed for pickups? Please describe.

    Go to one of the links above by @pierce and find the pull-down menu "CATAGORIES" upper left. Choose "NECKS AND BODIES" and see what they offer. I saw S bodies in mostly S-S-S configurations, with a bunch of H-H as well. There are H-S-H and swimming pools on their lower price offerings. I have a fairly recent swamp ash H-S-H from them, and a much older Paulownia body with an H-S-S route, but I haven't seen one of those in awhile.

    The XGP and other Strat bodies on GuitarFetish's site aren't alder, and the shape is different on the Xaviere products compared to a Strat.....so it's not any of those....that's why the OP isn't sure.

    Thanks everybody. I'm not counting on Xaviere bodies being from the same manufacturer as the other GFS bodies. I'm also not counting on the routing of the new "Pro" Xavieres being the same as the one's last year.

    Sending GFS an e-mail today.
