Here’s a rather nice Stratocaster, just needed a bit of a tweek on the setup.
It’s got some nice pickups as well.
Although for an American made Strat they got some basics wrong, the neck is on a little wonky. Since the neck will come off to adjust the truss-rod I’ll sort that out when I put it back.
With the neck removed from the guitar, bolted onto the jig and re-strung……
I can assess the neck relief…….
and adjust the truss-rod.
When I put the neck back on I made sure this time that it was lined up properly.
With the neck and strings back next I sorted out the height of the bridge saddles….
starting with the outside “E” strings…..
and then the rest, to match the radius across the fret-board.
Next the action at the first fret, a little high….
So cut the nut slots a little deeper.
And then the intonation.
A last check of the pickup heights and its good to go…
All ready to Rock n Roll…
