    What to do with all these black strat squiers I bought on Ebay, CL, forums, or pawn shops?
    Well I had some masking tape and a few cans of spray paint left over, so have some fun I told myself....
    Built to be playable, improved, but not perfect, I am going to do several like this, equipped with Alnico singles, and some with HB's. Good pots and caps, tuners if need be.
    Here is the first in the series....More to come and demos too!

    Is that the same one you posted pictures of a few days ago, just the finished product now?

    It’s the Yeats Seizure Series:D. That’s pretty wild man, I wouldn’t hesitate to rock it, nice job, keep em coming!

    It sticks to the magnet in case I have to make a saddle adjustment while on stage.
