I agree with six string. The way the lower horn points. Also the pickups have all slugs and no screw pole pieces. That is a dead give away it is not Focus series pickups in that guitar.

Striker 200st body with a good Floyd, and an early Floyd Rose model neck.
A picture of the tremolo cavity would reveal the truth. If you see plywood it's a Striker.

The longer I look at the second pic, the stronger the "striker point" becomes scratch_head . But if you can lay your hands on it on saturday you can check the usual things, J!

The only problem is, if I drive out all the way to where it is, there is no way I'm leaving empty handed! :roll

So, it was bought by someone & posted on FB.
It is a FR sig neck, real FR trem &....... a striker 200 body.

Yep.
The buyer mentioned the seller had a pay-as-u-go plan & was mostly unreachable.
Sorry J.

He paid 100 bucks for the sig-neck, the OFR and the pups. The Striker body just came with it :roll .

Yeah that's why I wanted it :roll i needed the floyd for a project, and the neck would have been a nice addition as well.

All well.

I'm currently re-painting that B.C Rich ST3 that I had painted with the red tiger paint job, but I was never really happy with how it turned out.... now trying to paint it up 5150 style (with a neck single) however I'm having issues with the paint with drips and uneven paintjobs, mainly because the center pup is filled with wood filler, and I CANNOT get it fully flat for whatever reason, no matter how many times I sand it with 60 grit paper... I'll make it work though! I mean it is a frankenstrat, could just beat the hell out of it and say it was meant to look that way :roll .

Wanted to put a floyd on this, but I may just keep the wilkinson I installed on it all that time ago; it's a cool little trem that functions real well honestly. The only issue is I just realized the reason a nut never really fit correctly on the shelf for the neck is due to the fact it's supposed to have a kahler style metal lock nut (well not really kahler, its a weird off-shoot brand of tremolo with a metal shelf...), but I really can't have a locking nut on a wilkinson trem...

I'll probably figure something out :roll

Locking tuners and Graphtech black Tusq nut work like a charm with Wilkinsons, that's actually my favorite combo.
