Lo my guitar shopping was put on brakes due to circumstances beyond my control (see how calm that was?), but that might be a good thing, as I've been investigating more options. I was frustrated with Fender's offerings, and started looking at other guitars (gasp!). Once I turned down the Dark Side I was led to the PRS Custom 24 with piezo. But my searched 'circle'd me back to Fender when I found out about the EOB Strat. What it is: From what I can tell it's a EC inspired Mexi-Strat, that has some serious electrical modifications, most notably with a sustainer system, and very cool slim humbucker in the bridge. While it's not exactly what I was looking for, it's got possibilities. What I wanna do: I'd be happy with it overall, but I'm very interested in installing (I really mean having a qualified luthier installing) a trem with piezo. Some routing would be required for wiring, and a new jack put in as well, but even with mods, I don't seeing costing as much as the PRS I was considering. Why I wanna do it: That would give me two signals from the same guitar to play with, one of them piezo. The PRS's system is much more sophisticated, being able to blend the signals and so on, but I think that's more of a luxury than a necessity. Damage: I do suppose I'd have to put in small knobs for piezo tone/volume, but the aesthetics of the design have already been violated by the two little switches, so whatever. I also plan to rip off Tom Anderson, remove the one strap point, and have two installed. Pure Strat Tone? I'm not looking to replicate any Strat tone from the past, but to expand my musical palette, especially since I'm getting into pedals, weird ambient tracks, and exploring musical psychedelia. Bonus: it's white/maple, my favorite. So, those of you in the know - is that nuts?
