Does this count as a custom Strat?

    Just finished a new build, inspired by oddball 60s imports like Eko. I was making a neck for it, but found a MIM Strat neck in Craigslist for a price I couldn't refuse, so it became an extremely non standard "Strat partscaster". It has a Strat serial number, so that counts right? ;)

    I would say jazz master inspired. Pretty cool.

    How’s it sound?

    Not sure how you'd call it a Strat.. P90's, JM(?) trem.. So no it's nothing near but it's kinda cool.

    Nothing Strat about it.

    Really good actually! I kind of though it would be more of a looker than a player, but that well used old strat neck actually plays really well and the GFS P-90s sound great. I need to put a spacer of some kind under the gold foil in the middle position to get it closer to the strings, as it is now it is way too low and dramatically quieter than the P-90s.

    In my opinion a pretty cool custom jazzmaster with a stray neck.

    Looks cool!
    For my taste, the esthetics get a little bit busy with so much hardware and electronics in a small body.

    That's an interesting not-Strat.
