Just in at Diablo Guitars is this modified 1973/74 Fender Stratocaster…

This one of a kind Stratocaster has been upgraded with a custom Wilkinson 57/62 loaded pickguard built by Metal Shop Music in Tampa Florida in Tarpon Florida in 2008. Also a Kahler 2700 locking tremolo system has been installed. These string through tremolo systems are widely heralded as one of the best tremolo systems around. The clipping of the ball end is not required for fast easy string changes and the ultimate in tuning stability. The guitar feels and plays fantastically. 

This guitar is a players grade instrument. It has a few nicks and dings all documented in the photos above. Also one of the original tuning machines has one ear broken off (see photos) but still functions perfectly. The frets are in good condition but are low and fast teetering on “fretless wonder” feel. It’s been freshly set up with Dunlop .09-.42 strings with low fast action. Ships in a Gator hard shell case.
