Hi everyone!

Today my new guitar got home, I am so excited I wanted to share with you!

NGD.jpg


So to give some details, this is what I ordered:
- Solid alder body
- 3 color sunburst
- Floyd rose original
- 22 case maple neck with a maple fretboard with a mat varnish.
- 6150 nickel frets (vintage jumbo)
- Gotoh chrome tuners
- Regular white Stratocaster pickguard
- Regular Stratocaster tone and volume knobs
- Chrome jack output
- R3 locking nuts
- 5 position pickup selector

Pickups:
- 2 Seymour Duncan Hot Rails neck for the neck and the middle position
- 1 DiMarzio Super Distortion on the bridge position.

I am really happy with the quality of this guitar!

Bonus points to whomever recognize the model of the Stratocaster I tried to reproduce! ;)

Chris.

Congrats on the new guitar, shes a beauty Clark!!

Thank you! I already love her! :D

Congratulations!! I hope she plays as good as she looks.

She truly is amazing, I had a Mexican strat with the same pickups before, and it wasn't even close to this one! Don't get me wrong, my Mexican strat was still amazing!
This one is just far above! The sound is so warm and the sustain is great! I almost thought I was playing with a compressor on! :D

That is sweet artillery you got there. You put a lot of thought into designing that one eh.
What kind of amplification you got going on to run that thru if I may ask.?

Thank you!
I knew exactly what I wanted before I started making the order, everything was crystal clear in my mind! But also, this guitar I created actually was produced by Fender back in 1989-1992 as their official superstrat (Fender HM Stratocaster).
These were made in Japan but did not have a tremendous success as people expected Stratocasters to be loaded with single coils and a regular tremolo!
Nowadays they are very difficult to find, especially the color I wanted!

I have a rack!
The preamp and the poweramp are on their way, so I still don't have it at home yet.
By the end of the month, this should be my rack:

Preamp: Marshall JMP-1 (on its way)
Poweramp: Marshall EL84 20/20 (on its way)
FX: TC-Electronic M-One XL (got it already)
Cab: Orange PPC212 closed back loaded with 2 Vintage 30 (got it already)

I also have a TubeScreamer (Ibanez TS9) that will be set before the preamp as a booster!

Love to hear that rig man!

Not quite!
I actually posted the answer, it was just a regular Fender HM Stratocaster from 1989 to 1992.
Mine is really inspired by the one Adrian Smith has though! ;)

Thanks everyone and sorry for the delay!
