So I had another post going from last week but I think I accidently deleted it when I got home from the bar over the weekend? Who knows. Anyways, most of the parts for the new build have come in and I am just waiting for the pickguard so we can wire this baby up.

Changes so far:
  • Replaced American Standard "stamped" bridge with 2006 Am. Deluxe bridge. Love the flat saddles!
  • Took out DMZ Super Distortion that I had in the bridge to take it back to GC.


For those of you who didn't see the last post, I am basically taking a 2011 American Standard Strat and turning it into a prog-rock/metal guitar. Just a Double-Fat with DMZ pickups.

Pictures so far:

Yes I was rude, and I was aggressive and I was offending a large group of people. But I was civlized about it.

Why is the chrunchlab F-spaced?

F spaced pickups have the poles a little farther apart to compensate a floating bridge, such as a Strat tremolo.

Also, it's done. https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1516244

If you need to kill a man with a 9v adapter? I say strangulate. Or swing the heavy end around and aim for the temple, all depends on your style.
