    I'm just going to ask the dumb question, but do you need to take the neck off to adjust the truss rod?

    Already have a Fender Bass (Dirnt) and a Fernandes LE setup this way and, while proper vintage, is a total PITA with the bipolar nature of midwest weather changes.

    Yeah, looks like it.

    There could be access by the neck pickup, but I doubt it.

    That's why I kinda wish my Strat was reliced. j8A43dt.jpg

    How do you like that Strat? I assume it's the Dave Murray sig. I've been having lowkey GAS for it.

    the rain soaked post industrial wasteland known as
    That's what his actual sig will look like as he got a Jim Root from Fender when he signed with them then when he got a custom build he based it off that but added an extra string and 26.5 scale.



    This is the one.

    Kinda going by what he said in the video, I'm surprised he didn't get Schecter to make his sig a Strat if he's a Strat guy at heart.

    He hustles the endorsement game, he's been with pretty much everyone: Ibanez, Schecter, ESP/LTD back in the day, etc.

    I like it other than the middle pickup. I can never get it balanced right. It's either low enough it's the same volume as the other 2 and muddy, or high enough it over powers the other 2. And for some reason the tone knobs kill damn near all the volume.

    I would love it if Fender made a 7-string Tom DeLonge-style Strat (single humbucker, perhaps an Invader 7 even, chrome dome knob, 70s-style headstock).

    A strat with 20" radius? I'd pass.

    Well the one this thread is about is 16" radius Bulb's certainly has other specs much more strat like. But whatever my point was more about the monster bridge pickup and SS frets. If getting a custom like this get whatever radius you want.

    I can change a pickup. I can't change the 20" radius on Bulb's guitars. A strat with 20" radius is as much of a strat as the one on this thread.

    Warmoth doesn't do 7-string Strats or even Fender scale.

    Stewmac sells a thumbwheel adjuster. Just gotta route your guitar and guard.

    I want one.

    Fender still doing this shit in 2021 just pisses me off. I can understand that there will be purists who want that 50s or 60s replica however a feature like a thumb wheel or even having the adjustment at the headstock is so fucking dead simple to do without harming any of the tonal qualities of the instrument that it should be a no brainer.

    This guitar is a custom that the customer ordered this way. Don't hate the player, hate the game.

    The older I get, the more in love with these I fall.
    Absolute stunner.

    Best ever metal strat?
