I want a strat with a pickguard, and a floyd rose, now the floyd rose in that is probably crap, but i have a nice gotoh floyd rose for it when i get it. Would this be a good guitar o upgrade? Im looking to completely personalize a guitar, basically im going to refinish it and do some other stuff, just need a solid-body with a maple neck and a floyd rose root, all the electronics and tuners and stuff and locking nut will be replaced.
I would stay away from that one, the body is paulowina (apparently some Asian wood that I haven't seen on anything but low end guitars). A few weeks ago Rondo had their SX SST strats with Floyds in stock. They at least have good bodies and decent necks according to people and are great for modding.
