Another weird thing about it is that the burst looks absolutely perfect and really well executed while the shape of the guitar is as wonky as it can get. Maybe the story is even more sad and grandaddy built the guitar precisely after drawings of the seller or his mom or dad when they were 3 years old or so. :'(

Yeah, I was thinking that it’s a cutdown job I’ve seen in a few Strats before. I, however, find Strats attractive in their natural state.
Yeah, they're fine. I was just trolling really. Although if there's anything I don't like about Strats it's that they're too small for my taste. This particular mod does very little to alleviate that.

Someone could make it acceptably 'correct' for a player. At the same time as I'm glad they did *not* do it, the most troubling thing probably IS the lack of a locking nut to me. Why butcher the rest of the guitar for the sake of not even getting correct functionality?

The lack of locking nut is a real head scratcher, but I’d sling that thing for the right price. There have been far more offensive ‘mods’ posted here before, and it actually seems they did a half-ok job plugging the trem route.

I actually kinda like it, but I would expect some horrible routing job under the pickguard as well - hard to imagine someone installed floyd and did not opt for the usual humbucker at the bridge.

It's not vintage but some interesting choices were made on this American Professional Jaguar...

That's a cut up Blacktop Jazzmaster pickguard for those who are wondering.
