I'm customizing my Stratcaster in various ways.
This is a used Fender Mexico Strat that I bought used.
Originally, it was a normal Strat, except that the pickup arrangement is SSH, but I modified it in various ways for my personal taste.
I replaced the front pickup with a single size humbucker Dimarzio FastTrack2 (DP182) to get a thicker sound. (It seems to have more output than the rear... lol)
I also converted the middle tone knob to a rear coil tap switch. This gave it a more Strat-like sound.
I also replaced the bridge saddle with a GRAPHTECH string saver. The sustain has been extended by about two turns!
I think I'm getting away from the Strat... lol
The pickup arrangement is HSH, so it has a heavier sound than a regular Strat. However, it is lighter than Les Paul and SG.
(Used) about 35,000 yen
