Default Belated Birthday New Guitar Day! - 05-20-2008, 09:30 PM

OK, so last week I turned 50. I "splurged"and spent a Benjamin (OK, $103 + shipping) on a Ebay cheapie. A Squier Bullet Strat. The seller yanked the black scratchplate with the generic humbucker and only a volume knob, and replaced it with a pearloid plate and 2 GFS P-90's, expanding the circuit to have a 3-way switch, and adding a tone pot. He threw in the original still-wired HB scratchplate.

Before I get to the pics, I have to say a HUGE thank you to Harmony-Central forumite FrettnOvrNuttn! I bid on this not noticing it was Paypal-only (traceable) and Gary agreed to buy it on his Paypal account and have it sent to me, trusting I would send payment to him. He did this out of the goodness of his heart. THANK YOU FRETTN!

Anyhow, the guitar is beautiful and looks much better than the auction photos (the color is a metallic blue with a definite purple undertone). I've only had the chance to very briefly test it, but everything works and it's virtually in brand-new condition. The action is low, the intonation perfect!

Now to the pics:

Only thing I may change is the tophat on the 3-way switch. I have a Tele that has a white Strat switch tip on it and I will probably switch the swtich tips on them.

But Krashpad is a happy camper. Thanks again Gary!
