Back to Sam

March 26 front March 26 back

The Frankenstrat was returned to mad scientist, guitarist and guitar-tech extraordinaire Sam Hubbell today for installation of the strap locks and final setup. Sam is going to order a new pickguard and replace the existing one at a later date.

In the first picture you can see the knob/switch/button extravaganza. Science! Three knobs, two push/pull pots, two buttons, two toggle switches, and a pickup selector switch add up to a ton of options. Also note the Sustainiac Stealth Plus in the neck position, the Lace Sensors in the mid and bridge positions, and the synth pickup near the bridge. And check out the cool Tusq saddles! In the second picture you can see not one, but two battery compartments on the rear of the guitar. I can jump start a Ford F-150 with the beast.

Plays like a dream - what a great tone from the Sustainiac. Target for return home is Wednesday. Almost there!
