  • HNGD.... I don't need no stinkin' Neck Pickup.

    I found this in the used section at GC dirt cheap and couldn't pass it up. I really cant afford another guitar but had to figure out a way to pick it up before someone else snapped it up.



    It's a Fender FSR Strait Six. A single Fender Atomic humbucker and single volume knob. Pretty cool guitar. And it's routed for HSS if I ever want to change out the pick guard. Right now I'm kind of digging the single humbucker.

    And just for the heck of it here are my matching Strats.



    Oh ya I fixed the crooked hanger already.

          The wife is out for a little bit so I have my Laney cranked up a bit and it sounds pretty good. I heard some bad reviews of the Fender Atomic but it's not bad. Maybe a little to mid rangey but totally useable.

          I kind of have a thing for black on black and black on white Strats. Of the 8 Strats I've had over the years 6 of them have been black on black or black on white.

              I love that model, stumbled across one in an mom and pop store and I loved it.

                  Right on! I definitely spend more time on the neck position than any other, but I dig a bridge HB. I have two bridge HB only guitars and another guitar than I only play on the bridge position.



                  They both look like all business guitars!

                  HNGD!

                    I guess there were only 800 something of them made. I have never seen one. Slightly thinner body contour and flat black paint job on all. This one had the white pick guard swapped for black but otherwise stock.

                      My FMT Tele had the Fender-branded pickups installed... some had Duncans, some had Dimarzios and some were Fender. I think it had an Atomic in the bridge and, while it wasn't my very favorite, I wasn't really tempted to chance it.

                      It also split pretty well.

                        Ya you know how I roll Woody. Beat up black Strat with a humbucker and I'm set.

                          I'm kind of digging the Atomic right now. I'll see what I think a few weeks down the road but right now I see no reason to change it.

                            thats awesome man. The one I played felt identical to my HWY1 strat, if I would wager a guess I'd say they're made from the same parts.
