Hi Guys - picked up one in a trade deal - needs some tlc - fret dress / work on trem unit but otherwise its very nice instrument ...

I know nothing about this guitar though - pickups ? body ( assuming alder ) - were they routed as standard for SSH ...

Would also love your insight into your experiences on this model etc

cheers in advance

The pickups are DiMarzio. Single coils are close to the current True Velvet lineup. Gives you all kinds of Stratty goodness in a comfy, ergonomic package.

Oooh...this one's right up my alley. Fantastic looking guitar, very classy.
Those Silo Specials are amazing and versatile instruments, huge congrats on the purchase!

While I'm usually a big fan of tort pickguards I would leave it as it is...it looks just right!
