parts to replicate the visual appearance and
sonic characteristics of our desired Strat. The
body and neck were purchased from private
parties/individuals. This is NOT an original
complete guitar as sold by Fender®.

3.8 Henries. The middle pickup has a DC

Selection Modification: The
middle pickup tone
control is a push/push DPDT switch/potentiometer
which activates the neck pickup when in the
up position. This modification offers a
total of 7 unique pickup selections. The new
pickup selections are Bridge and Neck
pickups activated and all three pickups
selected at once.
routed on rear of the body for installation of
the quick change "trap door" battery box.
Installed for usage of active pickups which
require a 9VDC power source. This allows ease of battery
change, does away with having to remove
pickguard and strings to change battery. Active
pickups are currently not installed in this
guitar, but this is a wonderful addition for
future changes in electronics possibilities.
