    Default Frankenstrat with a Dutch twist

    Here is my take on a Frankenstein/5150 type Strat hybrid!

    I used a '86 Fender body with a System I trem, which I completely stripped.
    birdseye maple Mighty Mite Neck
    1 GFS Loudmouth Humbucker
    I stained it Orange (the dutch national color) and I am still looking for a decal of the dutch flag that will go either at the end of the bridge, or where the Neck/Middle Pups would go..
    both body and neck are finished with True Oil
    needless to say it sounds and plays great!!

    Even though there's the Fender headstock and logo, I call this guitar a 1980s Kramer!

    Wilhelmus! Gotta love the Orange!

    I always loved the locking trems, myself. How well does this one stay in tune? Just curious. (I'm rebuilding an old 80's strat myself right now ... old Kahler trem that never stayed very well in tune.)

    Mooi werk!

    Dankjewel HipCat!
    It stays in tune really well! probably because of the PlanetWaves Locking Tuners! I no longer have the bar for the tremolo, so no huge divebombs yet

    Groeten, Marko
