Modded 1989 Fender Stratocaster.
“This was originally an 1989 MIJ Fender Strat in Flame or Crimson red that belonged to my dad. Played this over all of his other guitars, 36 in total. Within the collection were other Strats, one Les Paul, an ES-335, a double neck SG, Telecasters etc, but this was his favourite. After he died a year or so ago it was only fitting that I did something a bit special to it. We’ve added all gold hardware, had the neck straightened and re finished. The Hummingbird tree of life has just been added and polished over. The pickups scratchplate has been switched from a white single ply to and cream 3 ply and the pickups changed to a set of Abigail Ybarras that came off Ebay. She’s a fine instrument and afitting tribute to a fine guitarist :-)” - Darren Sowden.
