Cool. Thanks Brian. Rookie move.

Morales Mosrite style with Spain replica Mosrite pickups and some other upgrades.
Will try later to include some pics.

Played my "Surfocaster" through an amp for the very first time at a gig my band had on Saturday night. (The Charlottesville Skate Park was celebrating the installation of its lights, enabling them to stay open past dusk!)

It's a partsocaster, but mostly actual Fender parts. It's got an American Pro II body, an American Player neck (had to have the big headstock!) with Fender locking tuners and Fender American Vintage 65 pickups. The bridge is by Mann Made. Switching is standard 5-way, but the bridge is on its own tone pot, while the neck/middle share the other tone pot. Bridge pickup is reverse-slanted to get a sharper bass response. Warmoth pickguard.

I was surprised at how little noise came from the pickups, so apparently my shielding work was adequate Smile This isn't a surf band, it's my indie rock band 7th Grade Girl Fight, but this is the guitar I put together to get Strat tones on my surf stuff along with my Jazzmaster.

I may need to put a string tree on it; the high E string occasionally pops out of its nut slot when I engage in excited wigglebarness.


Amp for the gig was my Koch Twintone (50W EL34) into a Marshall 1965B converted from 4x10 to 2x12. Pedals are all BOSS - TU-2 (tuner), CE-2 (chorus) & PH-2 (phaser). Simple, classic, sounded great! Plus I could turn way up because we were outdoors Smile
