SHOGON Stratocaster #1『KUROKO』(黒子)
Formerly FenderUSA American Deluxe Stratocaster N3 V-Neck.
Purchased at Ishibashi Gakki Ochanomizu store on October 14, 2011.
All guitars I had at the time were from the 90's, and this guitar was the youngest one, made in 2011, and I named it "Kuroko" because of its black body color.
It was the first Strat with a maple fretboard in my life.
In January 2013, I changed the pickguard from mint green to gold anodized, and the pickup covers and knobs from white to black.
Noise is not an issue compared to normal single coils, and when played clean and crunch, the N3 noiseless sound is as clear and transparent as a mirror, just like its catchphrase "N3 Noiseless".
