LOL, thanks. Sea Green is a great color (or is it Seafoam Green ??) and I'd like a strat like that.
I got lucky with the pups. Carvin found a stack of 'em (M22s) in the warehouse and they're made in the 80s so they're retro sets. They put 'em up for sale in limited quantity and I got me a set. Love 'em. The pups that came with my axe were the Holdsworth (H22s) set and they sound better in my other guitar with the Mahogany body.
My other axe is a handmade job by a luthier I met at Buck Dharma forum. He named it the BD model and I got the no frills model which made it cheaper. I'm not gonna spend money on fancy wood, paint jobs and binding. As it turned out it plays great. He had the body finished in polywipe. I sanded it off, stained it Cherry wood and shellacked it.
