Fender Guitar Users Thread
« on: May 13, 2008, 09:42:09 AM »
I already see an Ibanez and Yamaha Users thread, I think it's time to put up this thread.

   If your guitar's headstock says FENDER, post it here. Make it as informative as possible so we can
give future Fender guitar buyers idea on what they're gonna purchase. For discontinued models and original
vintage ones, feel free to share your stories on how you acquired your precious Fenders.

Please try to put the specs of your guitar/guitars.

Here's mine.

Ladies & gents, meet "Maria". :mrgreen:

E-Series MIJ Fender Stratocaster, so that put's its production date somewhere in between 1984 to 1987. According to micsis, model no. ST-456 ito.

Alder body
Bone nut
Rosewood fretboard
Gotoh tuners
C-shape neck, I think (no skunk stripe)
5 springs at the back, so parang fixed bridge din. I removed the cover at the back.
Gauge 10 strings
Marvel straplocks

If I'm not mistaken, everything's stock except for the pickguard, plastic parts, strap buttons, & nut. It's in great condition, considering its age. It's at least 3 years older than I am. A few dings here & there.. and a few scratches. Nothing major though.

Here's the story. Unang lumitaw ang strat na 'to sa classifieds when micsis posted it for sale. Back then, it had black plastic parts, & had the option of a set of Seymour Duncan staggered pickups. And I think for a short time, it was to be sold with a vintage-style bridge installed; I don't remember if it had a steel tremblock.
During that time, I couldn't afford the guitar yet, even if I chose the cheaper option of buying it with the stock pickups. Eventually, Russell (aka scofield) bought the guitar.

After a few weeks, Russell PM'd me, asking if I was interested in the strat, coz he could sell it to me at a slightly lower price. I think it was due to his GAS for an Epiphone Dot. Hehehe. Sakto lang yung cash ko actually. So I went for it, I wanted a strat ever since I started playing guitar. And the rest, as they say, is history. :-D

Here's how it looked like when I bought it (minus the SD pickups):



And here it is now:









Sooner or later, I'll install a push-pull pot so I can get 7 sounds out of this baby. Hopefully I get to upgrade its pickups in the near future, & get a tube amp to match as well. :wink:
