Facebook purchase last week. Realtone Strat brought for $400.
Man it's the heaviest Strat I've come across. Kent Armstrong p/ups and neck is 7.25 radius 😬.
A good project guitar tho.

It’s a shame adrian and Ian with guitar parts aren’t around, parts guitars are such a good alternative

$400 is a right bargain, that would be on spec if not better than a Mex Fender. Probably way better actually.

I seem to recall someone had major issues with him a while back. Slash-ed maybe? I ordered a few parts from him ages ago only to be told they'd have to be ordered and would be about 6 weeks. His website gives the impression the parts are in stock — maybe most of them are, and I know it's difficult for even big retailers to keep stock details up to date on their website, but I get the sense that he's more of a take your money now and get the parts later type. I didn't really like his response when I asked to be refunded either; IMO that should be no problem, done almost immediately, but he kind of inststed I go through with the transaction — which I did because I'd have to wait a few weeks ordering the parts on eBay or wherever anyway, and the parts did arrive in 6 weeks or so. Still, didn't make me want to deal with him again.

Yeah, Mr Duncan need to be explicit about what is indeed in stock and what is “incoming “

I have dealt with him, it went like this:

1. Purchase parts from KennyDuncan.CO.NZ
2. Receive email that your order will be included in his next order from overseas suppliers
3. Wait a fuckin long time
4. Never order from KennyD again

Kenny Duncan...there was a shitstorm about his attitude to customer service and prices. Was in Wellington, now in Dunedin. Never dealt with the guy but the comments would have put me off.
