This is a Japanese (CIJ) Pink Paisley Strat modded with a Seymour Duncan JB Humbucker and a Super-Vee BladeRunner bridge. The electronics have been completely rewired with Evidence Audio Monorail cable and the guitar has a CTS 500k volume pot. All other pickups, switches, and pots are bypassed.It’s a killer guitar for fat-sounding power chords.Cheers!
