I got this guitar in june of '99 from Alex Perez at Fender. He found the body that was left over. We got a neck for it that day. I wanted a strat that was routed for a humbucker for the Burning Rain Japan Tour. I first tried a Lawrence L500, which I has used in my '80 strat, but it didn't work with the Alder body. Alex gave me a Duncan Holdsworth model that sounds pretty fat. Ken at performance Guitars did an emergency fret job on the neck the day before I left for the tour.more
It's an HSS model, unable to tell from the pic whether or not it is American, Japanese, or Mexican made. Blonde/aged olympic white in color, black pick guard, black pickups, 21-fret maple neck. "Elvis fucked Marilyn" sticker on the bottom side of the body, and the word "FAT" behind the bridge. Seems to be modded for one volume and one tone, with the second tone knob removed for a miniswitch.more
This is my second guitar and the guitar that taught me I'm not a huge Fender fan. Mine is red, but this is all I could find that was close to a 2011 Dark Red HSS Fender Stratocaster. I originally bought it, because at the time they hadn't made any EVH guitars and I always wanted his guitar.
