hi folks! havent been on the forum lately- because summer lol. just sticking this here in the off chance that somebody should encounter this guitar in the future. its a basic vintage style strat in sunburst- stolen from my home in hamilton about 2 months ago. i didnt post earlier, because there was hope that i could recover it- you see, it was stolen a few months back, by a guy i know (not a friend). when i approached him about it, he took me to visit the guy who had bought it off of him. i was offered roughly 4 times the value of the guitar, because the buyer loved it. when i refused, he gave it back to me. im pretty sure its the same guy who took it again. he denies it- placing the blame on the buyer from the first time. that guy also denies it. i have no proof in any case- and both these guys are semi professional UFC fighters lol. so im kind of out of luck. anyway heres the run down. body is 3 piece and solid- might be swamp ash, i dont know- in burst. routed for 2 humbuckers and a middle single coil. neck is an allparts solid maple with a soft vee profile, tinted and finished in gunstock oil. vintage fret size 7.25 inch radius. gotoh kluson repro tuners single round string tree at the time it had a handmade bone nut that was broken at the low e string. single ply white pickguard- kind of old and discoloured, as where the knobs tonerider surfari single coil pups wired for master volume, master tone- third pot and knob purely cosmetic five way switch- middle pickup rwrp i dont recall if i fully shielded it or not, but the pickguard would have been done with aluminum tape. most likely it had a .022 tone cap- either orange drop or ceramic, i cant recall. it had a vintage 6 screw fender tailpiece and whammy bar- set to float slightly- 3 springs a few dings and scratches, some paint chips- and a barely visible crack in the clearcoat running on the front from the high e string side of the tailpiece to the butt end. not a valuable guitar, but it was exactly as i wanted it, i preferred it to my other strats, and it was the guitar i used to rehabilitate my fretting hand after an injury rendered it useless. some pics- although the guitar had some slight modification and a bunch of playing time since they were taken. im kicking myself for not carving my name in the back. all my other strats have it- just not this one lol. it might be sitting in some crack dealers closet, or hanging on a wall someplace never to appear again, but you never know. in 30 some odd years of owning guitars this was the first to be stolen lol! thanks for looking!
