Vader Strat... Good Idea?

Postby Terry Tibbs » Thu Aug 09, 2018 10:01 am

Anyone build a SSS Vader 6X?

If so, did you like it?

AP11, SA60 or Beryllium/Lithium?

DO IT DO IT DO IT DO IT

I've seen a couple, they look awesome. Since it's 24 frets anyway, it's gonna sound more modern so I'm gonna say get the Lithium singles to match the style.
Also I want pictures.

Haha

Okay. Thinking vintage modern vibe with gold hardware and creme/eggshell satin finish.

Pics to come

I recently did a HSS Vader and enjoy it a lot. I immediately ripped out the lithiums though, they were not for me. I ended up with Dimarzio Area 67s in the neck and middle with an Andy Timmons bucker in the bridge, wired with a push-pull on the tone pot to split the bucker
