Custom made Super Strat
« on: October 03, 2011, 08:25:08 PM »
I've decided to sell my custom made Super Strat. Reasons for selling is I've taken up bass and am moving house.
I original put this one together because I was interested in a Jackson mid-range super strat type guitar and nothing really impressed me around that price range.I didn't manufacture any part of this guitar but rather i bought the best quality parts and pieced it together. I'm selling under the cost of the parts because I'm in need of the money at the moment.

Specs:
  • Body: Jackson Dinky in White
  • Neck: Made by MJW customs (Has gotten sick apparently so he's no longer doing work, you can search for him on the net for reviews of his work. Quiet a reputable neck builder). Specs are: extra Jumbo stainless steel frets (Which last a lot longer than regular frets). Real Ebony fretboard. Satin finish on the back of the neck. Side neck dot markers.
  • Original Floyd Rose Low Profile In Black (It took me ages to find a lo-profile that was original and not licensed)
  • Dimarzio Evo 2 Neck and Bridge pickups with a 5 way pickup selector (splits the coils) and a single volume knob.
  • Grover tuners
  • Tremolo-No in the back enabling you to lock the floyd rose down and a custom backplate for easy access so you can do this live if needed.
  • Schaller strap locks
  • Metal pickup guards
  • All black hardware

As you can see, I didn't compromise with any parts as I wanted quality even if it meant I had to wait a while to get everything together. The look I went for is clean and simple with no fuss. The only part of this build I'm not 100% happy with is that I put a decal over where the tone knob should be rather than having it filled in. I opted for not having a tone knob because A) I didn't use it and B) I put the volume knob where the tone knob usually goes so it doesn't get in the way when you're picking.

I'm asking $650
As I said, I'm selling a fair bit under what the parts are worth so the price is non-negotiable. It comes with a soft case and a couple of sets of DR Black Beauties 9-42 which is what it currently has on (notice the black coating in the pictures below).

I don't come by here often so if you want the fastest response please email me: timothyt AT our.ecu.edu.au or message me 0439 201 121

The very existence of flamethrowers proves that sometime, somewhere, someone said to themselves, You know, I want to set those people over there on fire, but I'm just not close enough to get the job done.
