Default NPD = New Pickup Day

Got my Hot Wheels themed strat almost all done. Got my rail pickups from Eyguitarmusic along with 500K alpha pots. Went with master tone so I had my buddy who wires for me to disconnect the second tone pot. Only thing needing a tweak is the bridge is not connected to the tone pot but my buddy will handle that for me next visit. I just now did a full setup with floating the bridge, action setup, intonation, etc. Love the tone and it plays great...

That is an interesting Stratocaster with those rail pickups.

Yep, I like the rails on my tele. Bends are somewhat different sounding compared to regular pole pickups.

Love to hear a sample of those. The Hot Wheels is great. I wish I would have thought of that
