    Went and drew out a daft £140 for a nice little Telecaster knock off to piss about on (got gig bag with it too), but on return jammed with it another 5 minute and the jack needed sorting. So left it there for them to sort & setup too. The high end bends up the dusty end were cutting out, and a touch of fret buzz around the 5th, so actions needed sorting properly.

    Played a fucking LUSH Squire Strat. £400, and would have had it in a sec if not for the fact that it was the foulest green-gold combo I'd seen. Can defo see me having a white strat soon.

    Took a few pics which I'll upload when I get back to the PC (won't do it direct off the phone for some reason). Some half decent stuff in tbf.

    Got a call out the blue off my old singer who I'd not heard from for months too Heaths too poor to commit to any real testing schedule, but it wouldn't half be nice to get out and fuck about on stage again. Will see how it goes

    Squier Strat sounds pricey, was it a limited model or an old Protone Series or something?

    It had to be a Classic Vibe for that money?

    I reckon you're due a purchase Sam, got your eye on owt?

    Ive decided the Fender acoustic will do me for now. Currently looking at acoustic pickups. I'm tempted to go for the soundhole type, Seymour Duncan, Dimarzio or Dean Markley. All good brands and got to be better than the cheap Chinese EQ box types.

    Half thinking about getting something with a tremolo to get that Miles Kane/R U Mine flavour.

    Not seriously looking at the moment.

    Iíve finally decided on the upgrades for my Strat, Iíve been chasing a certain sound (think early-70s Clapton, Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs) and Iíve sorted out what I need.

    It will be a set of Seymour Duncan California 50s, with a reverse-wound middle pickup for hum-cancelling. Iím also going to upgrade the pots with Emerson 250k jobbies and an Oak Grigsby switch, and while Iím at it Iíll replace the slightly shonky mexican jack socket with a Switchcraft one.

    My hope is to end up with a Strat that sounds rather authentic and plays very well, with a nice low action (that latter bit I already have sorted myself). And with those bits and the Callaham Trem parts and locking tuners Iíve already stuck on there, Iíll still have paid out over Ä400 less than an American Standard, for a Stratocaster that will sound and play somewhat better.

    Itís fun, this!

    You'll need the db boost circuit for anything Clapton based

    EDIT: Mid boost sorry

    Ah well you see, thatís not what Iím after.

    The mid-boost (as found in the newer Eric Clapton signature models) isnít the tone I want,even though I could add it (it would mean routing the body though).

    I want the early 70s, classic bell-like tone; Claptonís famous ďBrownieĒ Strat (his original one) is my benchmark.

    This sort of tone:

    There's a really good video where Captain Anderton did up a CV Strat as inspired by Clapton.

    Like Top Gear but with guitars:

    That Andertonís video is right up my alley though, although Iím starting from a Mexican Standard.

    I watched an interesting video some years ago were some guy in America had dismantled and analysed a Squier Affinity Stratocaster.
    He claimed it was closer to the original design than anything else Fender or Squier were making. At that time.

    Since then there's been all the Classic Vibe series released amongst other things.

    Still, it's food for thought that you can pick up one second hand for like £70 and it will get you in the right territory soundwise.
    I had a candle apple red model a few years ago and used it exclusively in a covers band, it was spot on.

    I'll try to find the video tomorrow.

    I wen through that choice a few years ago now and after listening to lots I settled on the L R Baggs M1 passive. I have to say it leaves all the others I have come across on the starting grid it is brilliant. A tad expensive but well worth it.
