TRADE MIJ 50s Strat & PRS SE Singlecut
I have a lot of guitars and some are quite similar. So I figured I could trade a couple for something different.
First up is a 1986 Fender Japanese 50s reissue in Black & White, loaded with a matched set of Lindy Fralin Vintage Hot pickups, CTS cryo pots, vintage cap and a Callaham steel block and matching arm. It has a TBX custom wired so you can blend the bridge and neck pickups together and an aluminium full screening plate under the scratchplate.
This guitar sounds amazing and plays really well. But its been sat under my bed for three years mainly as I have a 7 other Strats.
Its a Made in Japan and not a Crafted in Japan, so its early and about to hit 25 years old!
I'm the kid that bought it in 1987 and it was made in 1986 according to the heel stamp. It has some buckle rash and two paint chips on the bottom edge from me gigging it and playing it in the studio.
Add a black scratchplate and you've got a Gilmour guitar! Or leave it as is and you have a Clapton.
