Hi! I'm looking to upgrade stuff on my Player Stratocaster eventually. Was looking at Mastery stuff, but they only make things for offsets it seems, so I was wondering if there was an equally good supplier making stuff for strats, that will fit my Player Series without too much hassle (I know some American Customs have other specs as to where the holes on the scratch plate are for example, and I dont have too many tools to be able to fix things like that).
Looking for things like: - Locking tuners - Bone/tusk nut - Knobs - Saddles - Trem-block/trem system - Electronics
All hardware in chrome
Thank you so much for your help, really appreciate it!
Thank you! Do they sell things that fit a Player Series? (I'm kinda new to the whole upgrade game, just don't want to buy American-speced parts, and then find out my Player only fits Mexican-speced parts. Is this an issue I am right in concerning myself over?)
Interisting ideas for a Strat:
Longer Tremolo Arm for "Glide Guitar" (Techniqe where you hold the Trem while strumming and it makes a wavering sound).
You could replace the 5-Way Blade Switch with 2 3-Way Toggle-Switches for different pickup selection settings.
You could get rid of the regular Tremolo and put a Floating Tremolo on and do somthing weird with the cavity.
Piezo Pickups (Pickups which pick up the vibration of the Body insted of the Strings).
Buy a Scalloped Neck (Fretboard with wood shelled out between the Frets so that the string only touches the Fret and no wood).
I know not all of these are easy but it's just my thoughts.
for pickups if you want CLASSIC tones at a good price contact my friend Ken at Angeltone pickups
one of my strats is heavily modded with brian may wiring, a straight bridge pickup, custom everything, but you don't have to go that far over the top. Frankly I haven't even changed more than the bridge on my robert cray, sounds fine
