    That’s the second Assault to make this list. I love mine as well. Why do we not hear about these guitars more. They really are nice instruments.

    My #1 is a Partscaster 72 Deluxe. It is a Squire body, Mighty Mite small head rosewood neck, fender tuners, Fender bridge, Gibson Burstbucker pickups, CTS pots and Orange drop caps, switchcraft jack and switch.

    It was a labor of love putting it together and it feels, plays, and sounds great

    Just when I am getting tired of black Strats (I have two) I see your beauty. The red trim pops nicely. Cool build.

    That Warmoth guard was a nice bonus when I bought the 920D loaded pickguard over on Strat talk .

    Hey, keep this post in mind. I am currently working on a Squier mod. It is a color called Strawberry Shake..I will post pix when it is done.

    I have a number 1 guitar. I bought the original in a pawn shop- 1988- for $20. It had a Kalamazoo neck and was really abused....It was a 3 bolt 70's but now is 4 bolt. She has been with me for a long time and has been thru many changes, but now she looks like this.

    My earlier comment shared reason and doubts. An unsureness. But I've taken stock -- played 'em all and with all sorts of amp sounds. And yes, there is this about this one, and that about that one that makes them wonderful for this, or wonderful for that. And/or just pretty or fun. But right now -- and this is not what I expected -- there is just this one. On top. Wearing a crown.

    That's for its tone, it feel, its lightness, its balance, its amazing flexibility.

    I once owned a yellow Supro with two HB pickups and a hot dot on the rosewood bridge. A 3 selector switch gave the hot dot a screeching lead tone. That one you have is SUPER NICE.


    it looked a lot like this

    Wow, what a beauty.

    I suspect those were not actually humbuckers (Their size and shape made a lot of people think they were), but VistaTones.

    Several things make me think that. One is the bezel. Such lack the height adjuster screws HBs require. (The VistaTones are adjusted by the outer pole piece screws.)

    In any case that is the real thing. What Supro aimed at recreating (along with making some genuine improvements).

    Yup. Sweet!

    Back and forth. Back and forth. Back and forth.

    I did this a few years back with the Jazzmaster and the Jaguar. One day it was this one that had my heart, the next day the other.

    Well now it's between the Holiday Sisters. Lady Black and Lady White, and Lady White has gone and taken me again.

    The reason is twofold; One, she got the heavier strings. That because without a 2nd magnetic pup -- just the bridge VistaTone and the under-the-saddle piezo -- I figured she'd benefit from heavier bottom end that comes with the Rotosound Blues. (10-52) And oh, she has.

    The second is that I've fine tuned the Sweet Baby just for her, using the British Sound pedal for a bit of grind, and thus able to slightly lower the output of the VistaTone -- just enough to allow the piezo to add some of its acousticy (That's word, right?) tone. I then added a touch of compression to extend her sustain and hold back her bite, and she is a total heart-stopping wowsa.

    So anyhow, she is my new fav and I had to give her public recognition.

    Just so, so, so, so sweet!

    My favorite one that I bought is the EVH Wolfgang Standard. The favorite that I built is the Sunburst hardtail Strat.

    Very underrated instruments for sure and they won't break your back like a Les Paul if you want a single cut.

    So, in my on-again/off-again relationship with my only semi-hollow (an Epi Sheraton II Pro), I am currently on. It has a quality that none of my other instruments have. Plus, it is gorgeous! That 5-piece neck, 'vine' headstock inlay, bindings, and red wine finish just make me stare. The splitting pickups also adds to the tonal character. It's awesome.

    I had one just like it. Of the 20+ guitars I’ve sold over the years, the Sheraton was the best.

    Here is my current stable.
    I have 5 electric guitars and 4 children. I may like some more than others, but I’m not telling.

    In my earlier post I included four Strats, Am Pro, CP60s, Deluxe Roadhouse, and Player. They have been replaced by my two Am Performer Strats as my favorites. Perf HB.jpg PerfAB.jpg
