I got it brand new yeah, in December 1992 I believe, so it's got plenty of years on it. Also it's never had a case, and it's not been cleaned for over 10 years so, you know

The MIJ is a 'Foto-Flame', so it doesn't have a true veneered top. As far as I'm aware, it has a Basswood body (could be Alder, not sure) with a photographic film laid on the top. As such I don't think it adds a lot of weight, the finish itself probably weighs a pound or more, it looks about 3-5mm thick, hard poly. Cracks like a motherfucker though

And yeah, I do need a birth year guitar. I have got an 80's Greco Roland GR guitar, but I think that's an '80 or '81, i'm not sure how to date it. I really don't know if I want an '83 G700 lol.

What's the model number for the Strat? I would think if it's one of the ST-62 models, it would be alder

And yes you do. 1983 Kestrel?

Well if the customer wants it... like that guy from New Zealand wanted a fuzz factory in Olly's pelham MA... or THAT guy who requested a mini X-Y in your sxc stealth...

Unrelated, but have you still got your unsustainable MIDI file? I think I've got the first "drop" pretty close (haven't started the mid section yet) but need to do some minor adjustments in the automation. Wouldn't mind seeing what you have to compare.

This was sold ages ago, but any thoughts?

That's pretty much exactly what i'd want especially if that's brass hardware for MOAR SUSTAINS.

I know they did them with set necks or thru necks, of which i'd prefer the latter.

Also, I did look it up and it seems the Foto Flames had alder bodies with basswood caps? I guess they applied the film to the cap? Makes not much sense to me, but mine is flamey front and back.

I think it was usually the handmade parts that were brass, but I might be wrong. If that's the usual schaller bridge and tailpiece, I think those are actually made of steel, but the saddles are brass.

Have you definitely seen them with set necks?

And that is unusual. Maybe not as unusual as a mahogany cap over an ash body though #ToneRecipe

I suppose you could tell for sure by looking inside the neck pocket.

I 'thought' I'd seen some with one piece mahogany bodies implying a set neck, but now you've got me questioning that?

It's taken 20 months but we're nearly there! Oh, boy! Now I can start getting excited again...



On another note, I can't believe I've had my MB-1 for six years already this month! Still as good as ever though...
