Sonic Blue Strat

The neck has a nice chunky C. Fuller than the Japanese necks I tend to use. The body is a blacktop. A CS strat neck was added to it and Lollar pickups. It also has an upgraded bridge. It is really cool. Pictures below.

I ordered a new parchment pickguard for the guitar today. Not going to go the sticker route, but it will have a black bridge humbucker at an angle ala:

Middle and neck will be Jag-Stang neck pickups. Should be interesting. The lollars are going in to my Cyclone. The bridge humbucker is a Hot Duncan Designed bridge humbucker from a BT Jazzy.

I initially named this guitar Billie Joe in honor of the above guitar and because my son's name is William Joseph. (Not because of Green Day though. My dad's name is Joe and I like the name William.)

It will be like if Billie Joe did not have a sticker fetish and took better care of his guitar. LOL

Basically I got the neck on, tuned it, and adjusted intonation. The problem I am having is I had to max out the height and saddles to get it to be in tune. It was REALLY flat (low pitch) so I had to move the saddles as far towards the neck as much as I could and max out the height of the strings.

Anyone know what might cause this sort of thing?

Got her all fixed up. Adjusted the truss rod, removed the shim, and put new 011's on her and it is all good. Intonation worked much better without the shim. I also put in the longer screws which helped me feel better. (Not worried about the saddles popping off the very end of the screws.)
