Been away from these pages for quite a while, but since we're now caged in, I thought I'd share. This came up locally just before the Great Lock Down, and casting aside all feelings of guilt and responsibility, I went for it. Largely due to some degree of nostalgia as I remember being dazzled decades ago by a LPB Fender Strat hanging on the wall just out of reach in a music store. I haven't done too much except tried to tighten the truss rod, but it's getting stuck and the neck could use a turn or so more. I may loosen the truss and strings and then try again. Pots and switch are scratchy, and the cool pick guard is pretty warped--maybe it sat out in the car on a very hot day? I learned that the screw placement suggests it's based on a '62. I don't know if I should try to find a replacement, though I'm sure they're all different. Or I could try my luck at pressing it down. But I love the color scheme (not exactly sure what it's called--Electric Blue? Sonic Blue? Old Lake Placid Blue?). The glossy neck works for me, and the frets are good. I'm curious to see what is has under the hood. Feel free to weigh in!
