Yeah wife is getting a bit pissed but... Why not have one if the deal appears... right? Right
So... I bought this MIM Fender Player (used but shinny new):
Then I had two options. Make it a Dave Murray or a David Gilmour inspired one. Well since I already have "Metal Guitars" why not stay Classic and go the Gilmour route? Quick search on the local stores and I got a 3 ply Black Pickguard and some Vintage White plastics, and this came to life:
Black Pickguards on Black Strats make them look sexy AF!!!!
This things play great and I already knew hat from testing some at Stores. NO gaps at all on the Neck Pocket like the ones I saw at the sotre, Fret are pretty good too, not rolled but we can have it all. Also having 22 frets was a selling point together with the 2 point Trem.
I was more inclined some time ago to go for a Nick Johnston Schecter but the price difference is substantial and after reading a review here I kinda stepped back from it. Also the Route is HSH and the Trem Block is a Beefy one too. Going one day to full Humbuckers is a breeze and Fender pickguards can be get in all Configs without major issues.
I'm pretty sure one day the Bridge will have an Humbucker in there even if it is in a single coil format, but I'm going to try to resist doing it (if I can). Also its my first ever Fender
