    I'm not sure I even would know what to do with one these days. I've had my strat for 23 years and I can still remember the chagrin that I couldn't crush a 5th down in drop D with the trem. Shortly after that I took it off.

    Still it didn't compare to the disappointment of plugging it in to my old man's shitty Peavey combo for the first time and wondering why it sounded like a weird acoustic. Took it back to the shop and they sold me a Boss super overdrive. After that everything was much better.

    I haven't had a trem arm on my strat for a decade plus and I've never missed it. Tuning stability is pretty shite even without it. If there's someone local that knows what they're doing, a pro set-up always ends up feeling good. Otherwise, just be prepared for a good bit of trial and error to get tuning and intonation good.

    Hope the finger's better soon so you can have a proper noodle!

    That said - looks like the sort of thing you could make in a hot minute if you've a friend with access to a lathe. I've no idea if 80 strats are any good but it does look clean.

    800 buys a chunk of Strat though - I've seen some beautiful partscasters on Reverb for that sort of money with fancy neck wood, stainless frets, boutique pickups etc if you don't care about the whole Fender thing.

    That's a great looking guitar! A proper set up dress the fret ends and you'll be rocking. Down the line, you could swap in a real bone nut, some nicer compensated saddles, pots and switch and have something as good as anything I reckon. Would cost bugger all too.

    Happy NGD matey.

    I put Suhr Woodsheds in mine - like them so far, they are definitely a more vintage voiced sound, not too hot.

    You’re a gentleman of exceptional taste! What pickups are going in?

    That’s hot Lo. That’s a bad Bass right there. Slap. Etc.

    I’ve not seen one close up - I like the silhouette though. Yamaha is a rad company. Guitars, Pianos and Motorcycles? Got to respect that.
