Perfectly mint 1990 True American Made
HM Strat with the OEM Floyd Rose trem (not the Kahler copy)

I have added custom pups & switches, but have retained all the stock gear in the event I ever decide to make it look 100% original again.


2011 Les Paul Studio



A gift from the wife


This was a long time coming... After literally 6 or so years I finally had those new pups
installed in the old Heartfield. Strangely enough it really didn't change much of the tone



MIM Stratocaster


current rack, old school is the new cool :-)




the twin a 1989 MIJ HM strat almost identical to my MIA HM (above)
It's got a few nicks, but at least I won't worry about dingin it like I do my perfectly mint one.


My new Blue LED Starrswitch (truly one of a kind as I had it made just for me with the blue leds) I'm going to take the original red one & put it in the HM strat I bought yesterday (01/12/01 pictured above) that is 100% identical to this one even down to the Floyd Rose trem & lettering on the headstock.

Other People's HM strats & a little bit of info

The HM strats were made from 86-92 & came in 5 different pick-up
configurations & two different models with different headstocks & bodies, as
can be seen in the promo page link below

The pup configs were:

single humbucker only
dual humbuckers
H/ tilted S + tele pickguard (very rare & very ugly)
click here to view an example
& the most common H/S/S (just like my personal HM's at the top of the page)

Note: There are both MIA & MIJ models wearing "Made in USA" neck plates &
both with Kahler & Floyd Rose trems depending on the year of production.
