For any talk about guitar equipment

Look what I found!

Well not me but someone clearing out a room in my house. This has been missing for about 2 years, I knew it was somewhere in the room but couldn't find it myself. You really had to see the room to appreciate how even a doubleneck Strat body could get lost in such a mess... :lol:

Anyway! This is the first Strat body I built. I never got round to taking pictures of it completed, only the in-progress shots of me building it. So here are some phone photos. I'm really proud of this one, apart from a couple of dents that had to be filled from bad storage just after I built it (lessons learnt), its perfect, unique, and you really would have to look hard even in person to tell that it's 3 pieces of Korina, because of the quality of the hide glue joints I made with a hand plane.

The cr@ppy phone photos don't do this justice, it looks beautiful in person. It's frustrating that I've temporarily run out of funds (and workshop space), as the 6 and 12 string Sapele Mahogany necks are only half-finished... :(
