Relic (actually a survivor) Stratocaster with tapped vintage type humbucker. Loud and crunchy.

The body is over 20 years old, solid wood (medium weight) and has been abused over its life time. Finished in dark brown and black, this Stratocaster type body has been fully serviced, with very little surgery needed to make it healthy and completely functional again. It still has battle scars, dents, crackled paintwork (in places) and is not shiny and new. All I did was buff the paintwork with a mop. I love it!!!!!

The neck is a replacement and the headstock has been painted to match the imperfect look of the body. New machine heads have been fitted. The pickups are replacements and they sound very British (indie rock). The bridge pickup is tapped and can be switched via a micro switch near the 5 pole standard Stratocaster switch. The new scratchplate is a Fender type (screw hole positions are very nearly correct). A new complete tremolo bridge has been fitted.

As a nod to its past, the rear screws fixing the new tremolo cover are the original rusty ones.
