    I am not going to be playing out for quite a while because of the covid-19 issue so I am selling off some of my guitars.
    This one is a nice 1997 Fender Pro Tone Strat. Solid ash body, nice, blue\green transparent finish.
    Body generally in very good condition. Worst wear item is a clear finish scratch below bridge on front of guitar.
    21 fret neck with what I believe is a 9.5" radius. Fretboard has some wear, primarily first B and E strings - frets 1-3 and 12-14 . Overall guitar plays great, with nice, low action.
    Pickups have been upgraded to Genuine Fender Vintage Noiseless neck and bridge and Dragonfire Rail humbucker in middle. Tuners have been seriously upgraded to Gotoh 510s. Gold, Schaller-style locking strap pins
    This is NOT a perfect guitar but overall it is in very very nice condition with minor player wear. Comes with Fender gigbag.
    Currently listed on Reverb and Ebay but will sell here for $400 shipped or BEST OFFER (US ONLY)

    IMO they are the top of the line Squier and every bit as nice or even nicer than many MIM's.

    How does the rail pickup in the middle position affect the tone??
    Or....just explain the reasoning.
    I have no experience with that type of idea.

    The original middle position noiseless pickup went bad and I had the rail pickup laying around. I think it makes the sound a bit harder and grittier. When I used it out, I used it on the harder rock songs we played. The 2 and 4 positions sound a bit less "Strat-like" .
    Hope this helps.

    Thank you.
    I had never thought of doing that...so, the explanation is helpful.
    It's amazing how many people on this site have some really imaginative ideas that work great. Love this place!
