Originally a 1997 Fender Floyd Rose Classic Stratocaster, David's workhorse has seen quite a few miles and quite a few alterations.
After he had enough with the locking tremolo system, a major overhaul took place. The neck was replaced from an eBay snag, a Fender American Lone Star Strat neck and Sperzel locking tuners have replaced the original ones.
The Floyd Rose trem was replaced by a friend from Louisville, KY at the Guitar Emporium, and the Fender Deluxe bridge that was installed also features graphite Graph-Tech bridge saddles. The pickups and pickguard were replaced, and David currently has a Seymour Duncan JB humbucker (bridge), a Seymour Duncan Reverse-Wound Custom Shop (middle), and a Seymour Duncan Cool Rails (neck) pickup configuration.
This guitar has traveled many miles and has seen many stages, backstages, lessons, tour buses, bars, recording sessions, hotel rooms, backseats, and workbenches, and is David's go-to guitar.
