New Guitar Day!

New Guitar Day!!

Courtesy of Harry P

1993/4 Fender Foto Flame MIJ Strat with Bare Knuckle Irish Tour pickups (Rory Gallagher voiced).

At the time, these were considered to be better than the USA made Strats, and I can see why. Superb neck and build quality. And those pickups!

Everybody needs a good Strat, and now I have one!

Cheers Roj

The flame on the front and back is actually a very clever, almost 3D, image of highly figured flame maple, bonded to the body.

Very nice! When my youngest lad was in a band about ten years ago, the guitarist had a SRV signature strat, was brilliant, but actually think that one looks nicer.

Yeah, the SRV signature looks a bit naff IMO. A relic'd one from the custom shop would be better, but about 6k

Replacement Wilkinson WV6 trem and steel block. New scratchplate mounting screws and a can of WD40 contact cleaner for the scratchy pots and switch.

Don't! This is contact cleaner, not the normal blue can stuff. That'll kill them.

Cheers mate. Might replace the pots anyway at some point for good quality ones.

Excuse the cold spacker fingers, I couldn't be arsed with a second take. Doesn't matter what I plug it into, it sounds lovely with those pickups.

Sounding great! If I can find another strat with a neck I like I'd put another set of those pups on.

The '57 reissue Foto Flame has a soft v profile.
