Body: Alder

Neck: Maple neck with a modern “C” profile (dated 5-10-90), 1 5/8” wide nut, rosewood fretboard, 9.5” radius, and dot inlays

Pickups/Hardware: Gotoh tuners (Japenese made), three single-coil pickups (rated at 5.5 kOhms in the neck, 5.5 k in the middle, and 5.5 k in the bridge), five-way pickup selector switch, volume and tone controls.

Cosmetic Condition: This is one clean Strat! The body shows just a few very small dings along the lower bout of the top, and a few small surface scratches along the back. The neck is nice and smooth, while the headstock displays a couple of very light dings along the face. This Strat looks like a million bucks!

Playability: The strings are nice and low, play great, and ring out clearly across the board. This is a nice quality Strat that will last for many years to come! 

Modifications/Repairs: The body does not appear to be original to the neck. It is most likely a Japanese body of the same era, with Japanese components and bridge. Fully rewired with American made Lace Sensor pickups. The pickguard has been replaced. There are doweled holes for the rear control cavity. The routes in the body are for a humbucker/single-coil/humbucker style, though they work fine for a three single-coil configuration.
