it would make more since if it was done to CBS Strats. The methods behind thae maddness is alway cool things to learn. It could have offerd a different tone than the standard rosewood maple neck combo.

Well, if you construct a neck differently then it had been made, it's almost always gonna sound different... Well, they still seem popular today, so something must've gone right...

A new topic but still relative to the title of the thread:
I'm getting a mim strat! I actually like it stock, but from reading chesh's and rainer's posts, I can't wait to hotrod this baby. I'm so excited !! My Youth Pastor bought it on the youth budget, and nobody used it, so I'm gonna buy it for $225! Be expecting to see alot of questions from me soon.

I can go ahead and start asking questions, a recent problem I found is that tuning the guitar....well, It causes the guitar to go out of tune.

I had this problem with my very first guitar, a mimic-cheapo-worse-than-Squier strat. I use .10s, so heavy strings are not the problem, a weak tremolo is obviously the problem. My youth pastor suggested getting the music people to add a spring to the trem to give it more tension, he also suggested getting it glued down and just living with out it, but I don't want to do that. So that wraps up my first question, answer away!

Casey

*Edit* This really is a recent problem, I've been playing the guitar for about a year and it's never done it, or at least not this bad.

Either get new trem springs or put in a trem block.

Couple dumb questions to start.

1) are the strings new? old strings are a pain to keep in tune.
2) did the problem start after you went to .010s?

I would consider an extra spring in the trem cavity BUT you will want to make sure that it is all set up so the trem still floats. Don't let them talk you into blocking the trem. If set up properly, a Strat trem WILL hold tune in all but the most extreme trem moves.

You probably know more about this then I do, but could the cheapness of the guitar have any affect on how it gets thrown out of tune when using the trem?

He was saying that it used to stay in tune....so I would guess no. If it had never stayed in tune, then I would agree.
