i did a trade a few hours ago, and i ended up with this: a Fender MIM FSR.







i don't know much about it. it is 100% stock. it is similar to the regular MIMs, execpt for the colors, headstock logo, and that it has 50's voiced pickups.

i have to restring it and set it up, 9's are like spaghetti. the fretwork is great for a MIM guitar, its somewhat rolled like they do with the USA series, but not quite. it is still a very good for being a budget guitar. it has a really big trem block that i haven't seen on a MIM. the sustain is great, especially for a cheap guitar. the pickups don't have a ton of output, but are well balanced. and it sounds good with the zendrive going into the dual terror (really good combination FWIW).

i have about a total or $180 invested in it, after profiting on the trade and getting cash. couldn't be happier.

Ohhhhh. That is one cute guitar my friend. I'm loving that color combo. I like the trem block as well. I'm not big on using the standard trem on a Strat myself so it makes sense to me. Happy NGD!

Thanks! I never use trems on strats. I deck them. I think that the bigger block could help with sustain.

I am going to pick up graphtech saddles tomorrow. I have them on my other strat and I don't chew strings up with them. I don't remember what spacing I need though.

Really?

Well, one of these days, let me help you find a decent hardtail Strat or Stratclone. That way, you won't be paying for stuff you don't need and disable anyway!

i only use the trems on my ibanez prestiges. they hold tune through abuse, strat trems just suck. blocking them isn't a big deal. after a while, i am still liking my '96 (maybe '97 i forget), better, but that could be blood sweat and tears. my '96 (lets call it that), is developing a very nice patina, the white is aging into a cream, its looking really nice.

the FSR is really nice too though.

i don't live in a mansion. haha. i haven't been spending as much money as usual, the rockerverb was my big purchase, and other that that this year i only picked p two guitars, one clearance for $300 and one for around

i am not a professional musician. i do teach lessons and regularly do open mics. i have had been in several diffrerent gigging bands. i do some home recording. i am seeking a band at the moment. i am also the guitar and instrument tech at my church, i don't play there because i don't enjoy playing that music a whole lot.

Usually not a fan of black strats but the black pickguard and cream electronics look awesome. Congrats


i am not a fan of black strats in general either. i do also think it works because it has a maple fretboard and the cream electronics, i don't think it would work with rosewood.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.
