    Welcome! I assume you must have a light touch. I wish I could play a board like that.

    Nice strat! Gotta give the big heads some love. They've had a bad rep for too long. Big heads are strats too!

    Very very nice.
    Interesting to see how the MiJ did the 3-bolt neck.
    CBS models used a machine screw for the 3rd neck bolt and a threaded plate on the neck that the grub screw rode on.

    It certainly does. I'll post a pic of the fretboard to give you an idea!

    You really should have asked the experts on here before you parted with your cash. Not sure what can be done for such a badly distorted board. Best bet is probably replace the neck. Others here will no doubt chip in. Anyways, welcome aboard

    I believe that is intentional, it is known as "scalloping".
