Hello folks,

Ok, I just couldn't get along with the position of the volume knob on my Strat so I've had it re-positioned. I also wasn't keen on the feel of the bent steel saddles so have had some Graphtech ones fitted while the vol knob was being sorted. I don't know about tonal changes yet as I can't get to my luthier until Friday.

£20 for doing the jobs including a full setup. I'll give him more though, I supplied the scratch plate and saddles. Top bloke, top work. Check him HERE out if you're ever in this neck of the woods wink.gif

Pics smile.gif

Looks killer, I love the white with black pickguard, one of my favorite combos. I had the same issue with the saddles. I also found my hand was getting roughed up resting on the saddle screws. I got shorter ones that sit lower so I don't feel them anymore and cut some maple blocks to hardtail mine with the bridge flush.

Thanks Brian,

The pick guard is three ply black white black like the original. It does look sweet smile.gif

Cheers

Nice looking guitar! Yes, the volume knob position can be a nuisance at times. I like the look of the chrome/black combo with the humbucker. What brand strat is this?
