*Aged White pickguard (looks slightly bluish)
*Fender Hot Noisless AKA the "Jeff Beck" pickups
* "F" logo backplate
*American Standard Maple neck with 22 frets...OR...it can be changed for a Deluxe Lonestar neck with the large headstock (maple, 22 frets, 9.5 radius, medium jumbo frets, modern C, 42mm at the nut etc.).
*Fender locking tuners (not Schaller)
* Tremolo arm (...obviously)
*(played for no more than a few test hours)
I flushed the bridge to the body allowing tremolo use only to flatten notes; increased tuning stability, sustain, and high bends that does not detune the strings.
Note: The story of this guitar is, I bought an ordinary MIM strat and decided to modify it to my liking, just like anyone would. This guitar is not found stock, but which combination of parts is very much demanded. The typical modification on a stock strat is to take out the noisy pickups: the Hot Noiseless are the best Fender has under the noiseless category. I solved the tuning instability that stock guitars have. The guitar now has perfect tuning stability. Finally, I removed the stock neck and kept it for myself because of the thickness ( I have small hands), and installed a brand new American neck from a guitar I had just bought but did not like the extra thickness... the swap is a matter of personal taste. The neck is fast and perfect.
I saved you all the trouble and run around of modifying a stock strat; it easily rivals l American one. It has been sleeping peacefully in its case awaiting its owner.
*Feel free to ask for more info...I am even willing to do a Skype session where you can see the guitar in camera live.
