Yeah... I know... but I think this one may attract some strong opinions... so flame suit is on and I'm prepped. The strat is an Aged Copper Roadhouse body, 2005 American Standard pickups with the Delta-Tone no load pot, Parchment guard, and maple neck from a Lone Star. I love the aged copper finish, but I find this combo a bit... shall we say.. boring. The original blackguard doesn't work for me either... I respect the history of the Robbie Robertson "Last Waltz" strat but it's not my thing. So a month or so ago, after a few whiskies, I ended up on ebay buying up bits that looked interesting. Some stuff is fender. Some stuff is Chinese knockoff. Part of the influence was just "aged"... as the fresh guard against the dark copper I think felt out of place. Another part was Knopfler's famous Dream Machine Schecter... which this clearly isn't. Anyway... here's my collection of parts (original 3-ply blackguard not shown, but exists as an option). How would you put it together? Or perhaps something else?
