Here’s a great playing StrXX style guitar built using quality parts sourced from US and Japan.
Solid Alder body finished in Fender colour Torino Red. The body is from WD Music Inc from Florida USA. WD Music was founded in 1978 when Wendy and Larry Davis, veterans of the US music industry, recognized that there was no aftermarket source for quality replacement guitar pickguards, and other components. Over forty years later, WD is a respected full service stringed instrument parts supplier with distributors in the UK, Canada, Australia, Finland, Germany, Sweden, Korea, and across the globe.
Vintage 50s style StrXX neck from WD Music. 7.5” radius, vintage tint.

5 way switch
About the bridge – “Case hardened steel baseplate, solid BRASS trem block- FULL SIZED- hardened steel trem arm- screws and springs- everything you need for a complete install.
The improvement in tone is remarkable - better sustain, better bottom end response. Brass gives you the warmth that many single coil guitars lack! The guitar will sound fuller, louder and tighter.”
The lower tone pot is wired to add the neck pickup to any existing switch position.
And the secret weapon on this guitar – a Guitar Fetish “Clapton Boost” ---->
From the maker – “The guts of a great sweepable EQ and Gain footpedal, miniaturized and put into a simple pot-mounted circuit. Forget the pedal board, just install the "Tube Driver" circuit right into your guitar. Not a distortion pedal - but a smooth sweepable Gain/EQ boost for overdriving your amp.
Starts out with a FAT boost great for fattening up Single Coils, and it cranks all the way up to a screaming Mid/Treble boost sure to push your amp over the edge!”
And it actually works really well. You can use this in a subtle way to put some crunch on the front end of your attack, or wind it up for sonic meltdown at your discretion. Based on the circuit Fender installs on its Eric Clapton Signature Strats, it is a very useful onboard tool.
This is a clever combination of quality components and workmanship all nicely put together to create a unique variation of the world’s most popular electric guitar. This guitar is in brand new condition with no player wear evident. It has been used sporadically in a home and studio setting, and is ready to rock.
Comes in a Fender gig bag in good condition.
