Got the mods done (bridge switch and .01 tone cap). I used the original jack hole in the pickguard for the bridge switch. Whoever install the strat jack plate did a fantastic job. Restringing it now. I'll set the action over the next week or so before I set intonation. So far the action is as close as a PE-R80. This thing is just as well built if not better than a $1600 strat and the contoured heel is a joy to get to the upper frets in comparison.

Got her all set up. All I can say is :hyper: :hyper: :hyper: :hyper: :hyper: :hyper: :hyper:

It does a great Trower and works really well with my classic gain and high gain patches. Sounds fantastic clean too. Not near as noisy as I thought it would be. I think Fender's arse just got whooped.
