2013 Fender Blacktop Strat HH [8.1 lbs] :: setup

A blacked out double-humbucker Mexican Strat on the bench for a setup.  The fit and finish is pretty decent however the factory set the saddles flat with respect to the fingerboard.  The saddles needed to be adjusted to match the 9.5" curvature of the fingerboard.  This guitar is for a young student so the floating bridge was tightened flush against the body to help minimize any possible tuning frustrations.

The 5-way switch offers some really cool options:

  1. full neck pickup
  2. neck forward single coil
  3. both pickups full
  4. both pickups inside single coils
  5. full bridge pickup
