    Hey Doug,

    well this might go in the equipment forum, but since it’s a question directed to you, I put it here. Anyways, I’m curious about the white unlabeled strat guitar that you use in your instructional videos. Is this a guitar that you made yourself (hence the no label) or is the label covered for lack of endorsement option?
    I sorta recognize those pickups, some boutique maker

    It’s a Carvin DC 127 if I remember correctly. Or I seem to remember a student building a guitar for him, maybe it’s that one.

    Looks so different than the one’s on Google, specifically the body shape and headstock

    Check out CBC 1988 volume 1, Metal Gear 😀

    This the one?

    I'm an intermediate student of Metal Method. I play seitannic heavy metal. All Kale Seitan! The glutens will be eaten with relish!
    And on the Seventh Day, Mustaine said: ∇ ⨯ E = - ∂B / ∂t ; and there was Thrash; and it had a ♭3; and it was good.

    That’s a custom strat that pimpstick here on the forum made for Doug. It’s got a Floyd Rose as it should hehe and a bolt on neck with the heel adjust truss rod on the side of the heel a little bit past the body (more easily accessible) instead of at the base of the heel (near the neck pickup – typical old Fender strat style neck like mine). You can get these kind of parts at warmoth. The body has the control cavity in the back side of the body and the output  jack on the side of the body like a les Paul which is custom compared to a Fender strat’s normal body construction (like my strat). Pimpstick did all the paint himself I believe.

    Here’s a picture of my strat I made for quick reference.

    The guitar was made by a student of mine to show his appreciation of how my lessons have contributed to his life. He learned from my original series in the 80’s and more recently they have influenced his son. There’s a great story about the guitar that I have shared. There may be a reference to it on the Forum.  The student’s name is Hank Switzer.  Yes, the pickups are boutique, once available only on Fender custom shop Strats.  Everything about the guitar is top notch.  It’s not a kit.  He manufactured everything including the neck.

    Actually Pimpstick (Van) made a different guitar for me.  It’s really cool and has custom paint done bey an artist whose name escapes me.  Sorry.  I used the guitar that Van made me in the revised Complete Guitar Course (2 or 3 weeks). Van is currently making me a replica of the guitar that Hendrix used at Woodstock.

    Well, that’s the most coolest story I’ve ever heard about a guitar before! I’m glad I was curious enough to ask, then just let it be 🙂

    A completely hand built premium guitar from an appreciative student, that’s so great!
