Rained off, so stripped the G&L. Not only a swimming pool, but the guitar's birthday as well! And I'm confident it's an Ash body.
Cleaned, tweaked the intonation, restrung and spent a couple of hours playing the result.
It sounded encouragingly good.
Then I discovered the key to making this guitar work. The volume control is hyper sensitive. The whole tonal character changes in a quarter turn of the volume knob. And the Bass & Treble cut knobs have a huge effect as well.
Armed with this insight, I headed off to band practice to discover I have a Strat with more clarity and tonal variation than I ever thought possible. When you know how to drive it, this thing is incredible. I love it!
So this thread is closed. I'm not messing with it. It's as close to a perfect Strat as I can imagine. I'm just going to accept Leo knew better than me and play the hell out of this thing.
Starting to realise I won the lottery with this guitar.
