SOURCE: I have a Fender Squier Strat. The Whammy bar is

There are MANY tricks to remove a threaded piece like this:

1. With a Dremel tool and a cutoff carborumdum disc cut a shallow slot in the remaining piece and use a straight bladed screw driver to remove. This can only be done if the screw is above or flush with the surface.

2. Carefully drill a small hole in the piece fairly well centered. Use an "EasyOut" to remove the broken part.

3. Carefully drill several small shallow holes on the top of the broken part in a line so as to form a slot for a screwdriver.

4. Carefully drill a hole JUST the right size into the broken part and then drive an Allen wrench into the hole to turn the broken part. The hole has to be just the right size so the wrench can peal tiny pieces off to grab the broken part.. this is tricky to get the size just right.

5. Use a detist drill to cut a slot.

In all these use a penetrating oil or CRC226 to make it easier to turn.

SOURCE: CAN I FIT A FENDER STRAT PICKUP IN THE MUD

The Fender pick up has two wires, blue and white. The Jackson has four: red, green ,black, and white.

1st. Determine the hot wire and the ground wire on the Jackson pick up and then just replace the Jackson pup with the Fender pup. White on the Fender is the hot lead and blue is for the ground. If you hook it up backwards it will be out of phase with the other pup's and will sound thin and weak when selected with either the rhythm pup or the lead pup. Of course, by itself it will sound normal because switching the wires only changes the phase of the Fender pup.
On the Jackson pup, the green and black are ground while the white and red are the hot side. Just solder the white lead of the Fender pup to the pup selector hot side and the blue lead to the ground.

SOURCE: I need documentation to set

Intonation is easy if you have an electronic tuner, and instructions for a Les Paul style guitar will be close enough. Same with neck adjustment, if it is a set neck, use the Les Paul info. If a bolt on neck, everything but the neck angle is still relevant.

What kind of Strat is serial no Z7041802 and what year. Is it an American Standard Series HSS or an American Deluxe Fat Strat


Your guitar was made at the Corona Plant, USA in 2007 - 2008. The serial number does not tell us the model with Fenders.

Fender strat serial number DZ0067060


Ok, this is going to be a lot of information. Let's start with the "D"; this usually means that the instrument is a "Deluxe" version. This would suggest it is an American Deluxe Strat. But Fender, themselves even admit that this letter ended up on some American Standard instruments. The second letter is EXTREMELY complicated and hard to explain. From the 1970's through recent years, Fender has used an "S", "E", "N", "Z", or "X". Here is the complicated part; "S"eventies, "E"ighties, "N"ineties, "Z" = 2000-2009, "X" = 2010 - present ;). The zero following the number suggests that this is a 2000 American Deluxe Strat. Keeping all of this in mind, there is another slim possibility. Fender has always used bolt on necks. Leo Fender decided to do this for a couple of reasons. They were cheaper to assemble, easier to work on, and easy to replace. Fender produces many replacement necks and they all have serial numbers on them. The previous owner could have potentially replaced the neck on a standard or even a made in Mexico Strat with an American Deluxe neck with a different serial number. I know this is a lot of info and the serial numbers do go more in Depth than just this, but more than likely you have an American Deluxe Strat. Good find!

Fender serial number search N9422449


The guitar is indeed a 2002 fender stratocaster. Many prefer older strats because they believe them to be of higher quality. It also depends on where it was produced. Mexican strats are okay, Chinese are usually the least liked.

N seems to denote American Made Strats though, American made are superb.

I can't set my intonation on my 2012 fender american strat hss.i have done what they say to do but it doesn't help


okay first you must look at the frets if they are flattened out this is one reason and no matter what you do you will not be able to do it because the flattened frets are now making string contact further up in the scale length instead of in the center of the fret look at your string when you press it down it will be making contact on the very front of the fret making the notes sharp and driving you crazy with repeated attempts at setting the intonation you need a fret dressing if this is not the case and the frets are not worn but the strings are high off the fret board the neck relief needs to be adjusted to much neck curve upward results in higher string travel to be fretted which will add higher pressure to fret a note and making them sound sharp to check the neck take a capo clamp it at 1st fret now go to the fret where the neck joins the body and depress it count back to the halfway point and see how much space is between the top of the fret and the bottom of the string this should be around the eighth fret or seventh take a matchbook cover or a thin piece of plastic like a laminate you cover your pictures or documents with put it between the string and the fret the right height should be that it just fits between without moving the string once you've done this you should be able to intonate but please inspect all your frets first for flattening wear from playing if buzzing occurs after setting the frets in that are higher up the neck need to be dressed because they are not as worn as your regular playing zone which will make them a little taller when adjusting the truss rod do it 1/8 of a turn at a time do not crank it they are very sensitive to torque and the neck will bend backwards you must go slowly restringing and unbolting the neck unless your truss rod is at the headstock these are much easier but still require a little at a time 1/8 turns and patience good luck

My AG6 tuner its wrong at the moment of intonation. I comprobe it with a computer tunner (a program). I need to now how to tune my tuner. Thanks


Your Fender tuner is crystal controlled and if you set it for A440 Hz, it will be far more accurate than any computer program can generate. Most of these tuners have the ability to be set at different reference pitches. If your guitar intonation doesn't match at the 12th fret, then you have a guitar setup problem, not the tuner. The intonationation is set at the bridge if you have a bridge with individual adjustments.
