Hey all, I've bitten the bullet and decided to post a thread on this. Would anybody like a Standard MIM strat? Good condition, only gigged with once/twice.


Open to anything, if you would like it, let me see what you got.

Pics below.

Photos dont work, but I have an explorer or possibly an S470 I'd trade. Got good pics?


Sure thing. I've been looking for that Ibanez for a while, is it one of the older ones or is it a current one?

I've got pictures, any idea how to make them small enough for here? and can I see pictures of the S470?

Thanks.

Upload them to photobucket and post the links here.
There's no current S470 model (I think it stopped production 2009), mines a 2004 model with the screw in trem arm.

Pics to follow when I locate the camera

Are the tone and volume controls existent?


Yeah it's all there, knobs and everything. The electrics have been upgraded and rewired, I was toying with the idea of independant push/pull coil splits but the body is too thin for PP pots.

Whammy bar? could I see some recent pics so I know what it looks like now.

I'm trying to find a way of making all my pictures smaller just for you. Any idea on how to do that?

Thanks, I'll convert the pictures into a smaller format. Where about's are you located by the way. Your profile says northeast and your a student so that suggests three places too me.

Newcastle, middles-borough or heaton and possibly Sunderland too .

Right, I'll get the pictures done.

That looks like one of the satin finished models, does it feeler smoothe rather than plasticy on the finish? Could you PM me the serial so I can date check it?

I've had a ponder, and I'm going to pass I'm afraid. First guitar sentimentality and all that.

Cheers,

Also has nickel Klusons instead of whatever epi had on originally. It's not currently wired up, but let me know and I'll go about with the soldering iron.

Do you have any bigger pictures of the strat you can email to me?
