    It’s an elite with DiMarzio pups. How could it not be a great guitar.

    I had a LP with a push-push switch and it was the easiest to me. I like S1 switch but still have to grope for it in live setting, push-push much easier in real time to me

    Yeah, I think a push-push would be better for a strat. But I manage just fine using my fingernail underneath the bottom of the knob.

    That sure is one sweet looking Stratocaster guitar with the Aztec gold and maple FB with 22 frets! The boost and mid-boost features are a nice touch.

    So last night I took off the 9s, and then took off the film from the pickguard and rear cover. I also installed 2 more springs. I took some pictures of what's under the hood.

    So the battery for the mid boost is in the back:

    At first, I thought it would have been under the pickguard. This does make it easier to change. I was hoping to leave the back cover off, but since the battery is right there, I'll leave it on.



    Here is how the body is routed:

    So you can easily put a number of combos in.

    Here is the wiring of the pickups and electonics:

    I put 10 gauge strings back on it. I really like how it plays with the 10s. Also, the bridge is decked to the body with the two additional springs. That's how I prefer strats.

    Hey - Great shots - I nabbed them for reference. I bought one too! Great guitar. But I messed around with the action and now have some buzz going on. Did you by chance take any measurements prior to changing yours? Looking for the factory setup on the bridge and action - and neck relief. Thanks!

    Thanks! Nope, didn't take any measurements. I usually just adjust by feel/eye...to what works for me.

    So I ended up returning this first guitar. There was an issue with the nut on two of the nut slots being too wide. Thought the 10's would have fixed it, but it didn't.
    Just received my second one yesterday, the nut is fine and the store I got it from (CME) already set it up with 10's. This second one has a slightly beefier neck, which I really like.
    No pictures because it looks the same. lol

    How much beefier a neck? I would have thought they would have been about the same, same model etc. Have you mic'd the neck for thickness? If I would ever buy a Fender guitar, this would be it, no question.

    Only by a hair..just enough to make it noticable. No two guitar necks are ever alike, even within the same models...doesn't matter the manufacturer either.
    I didnt take any measurements
