    Well after long last it looks like have finished my custom build Squier.

    It was a long road but after playing it today it was well worth it.

    Many hands have been involved but none like rocknrguitars. He advised, built and shipped the pickup build. Without his help I would have never finished this build in the form it is now.

    If you need anything you need to contact rocknrguitars. To see his magic just look at the picture of the back of pic guard, he did ALL!

    So back to what was done,

    Fender locking tuners.
    Full size brass tremolo block.
    Brass Nut.
    Seymour Duncan Hot Rails Humbucker – Neck.
    Seymour Duncan Quarter Pound Strat Single-Coil – Middle.
    Golden Age Humbucker overwound at 12k bridge.
    Push/Pull Volume, Tones to change the pickup configuration.
    1 oak Grigsby 5-way switch.
    2 500K CTS Push/Pull pots.
    1 250K CTS Push/Pull Pot.
    1 Orange Drop .47 Capacitor.
    1 Orange Drop .22uf Capacitor.
    1 Orange Drop Treble Bleed.
    3 Black Strat Knobs.
    1 Black Switch Tip Knob.
    Six saddle vintage-style bridge assembly with hybrid stamped style steel saddles with string grove.
    Kill switch.
    Fender Straplock W/ Button

    SO What do you think?

    That wiring is the best I've ever seen. I'm amazed at the work he does. Nice guitfiddle there.. I'm sure it's a tone monster.

    I love your backplate! Where did you get it? Did you make it yourself?
    Your attention to details is impressive!

    Totally amazing !!!

    Now you see why I'm always singing Mike's praises. The man is a magician because his work is magical. I have 13 Squier NC's ... all with different variants of RRG's. I can't live without them anymore.

    The build looks beautiful ... and I bet it sounds even better. Those pickups and the RRG harness really take our Squiers to a new stratosphere. I've learned that the key is matching the harness with the pickups. Installing a set of expensive high end pickups won't make much of a difference if they're being throttle by low end caps. Match them with the proper caps, and wire them up with Mike's magic ... and it's like going to Disney. Fireworks every night. :)

    Congrats.

    @rocknrguitars - amazing work as usual. :)

    Thanks eddie, YOU turned me on to him, so I have to thank you for the tip!.

    He did such a great job for (in my option) for not much money. I was up most of the night playing after I put it all together. And today I play with my Fender friends who always make fun of my squiers, well we will see now LOL.
