    2007 American Ash 8502 Tele with Kinman Broadcaster pickups. It'll be my No1 'til I drop.

    I'm a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma.

    Ashley, my made-from-parts honey. One piece Swamp Ash, forearm and belly-cut, 1/4" radius edges all around. Graphtech saddles, and Kinman '60s set pickups. Reversed control plate with a TBX center pot for tone control. Warmoth flame maple neck. This pic is with her easter getup on, most of the year she sports a blackguard. She never fails to satisfy.

    Some contend that rock 'n roll is bad for the body & bad for the soul
    Bad for the heart, bad for the mind, bad for the deaf & bad for the blind.
    It makes some men crazy and they talk like fools.

    How are those graphtechs? I thought about buying them but never heard much.

    Yeah, I know it's an old pic, but she still looks the same - when you hit it right, there's not much incentive to change things.
    This is my #1. Baby Blue is a 2002 MIM Standard at the core. The bridge pickup is a Dragonfire rail humbucker, 4-way switch, reversed control plate. The unique "body piercings" south of the bridge are the traces of an ill-advised and soon-reversed decision to mount a Bigsby. Now they're a conversation piece.

    She plays like buttah - just feels perfect in my hands! I've added more than a half dozen guitars since I scored Baby on eBay, but none ever came close (at least until I built my #2 Rusticaster Strat last year). And, again except for Rusty, all are pretty much expendable.

    There is none so blind as he that cannot see...

    I like the Graphtech saddles a lot. If you have problems with string breakage in that area, they can help cure it. They also round off just a teeny bit of the super-highs which is fine for me, I don't like the brittle stuff. And they make a nice feeling platform to rest your palm on, much better than Fender's rolled bridge saddles. I also have them on a couple of Strats.
