When my S2 Singlecut was in for warranty after I only had it a month, I broke down and bought a new, loaded Fender Strat Robert Cray body- came from the custom shop. Years ago I had bought 5 ebony FB Strat necks. I installed one, added Sperzel lockers. By far not my first Fender, but I was never in love with any of them. Well, all that changed with this hardtail with the special pickups- it owns me like my S2- my first PRS. ( I soak all ebony FB's with water thin CA and rub them up with Micromesh pads to a velvet-like finish- no cracking and an "alive" neck.) Later I picked up a factory "Robert Cray" neck- new and I am not using it.
