i've sourced stuff from all over the country. the last WH10 i bought was from an orange country craigslist. my DSL was way out on long island and i convinced the guy to drive an hour to meet me at Shea Stadium
i think an HSS for Piob would be whack mostly because of his Les Paul. sure, it won't sound exactly the same, but that bridge single is a huge part of what makes a classic strat a strat.
so that is my lesson. three singles and a nitro finish.
this. the way those 3 pups hit is why a Strat is awesome.don't buy new, but since you will, American Vintage series at the very least.edit: i bought an AV for like $1300 new in like 2005 (yeah, i know, new). what's with these $3K prices from the Fender website?? Fuck that.
