Stay tuned here.

I got two nice (albeit cheap) guitars from the good Reverend. I think all my parts are in. Or what isn't will be tomorrow.

I haven’t done this in a few years. Very much looking forward to the projects.

Link to the gallery

The Strat copy is an SX. Ash body. It has a bound neck. It has a white PG but that will never be on the guitar again.

The Tele isn’t going to look much different.

I have a question. I assume that Strat-o-copy clear is poly. Heat gun to remove? And plenty-o-face shield, etc.

I would bet that it's poly.

I love the neck color on the Tele. In fact, I changed my mind about not wanting it. I challenge you to arm wrestling for it. :oD

Back in the day, I used to win beers by arm rassling in the bars. We'll just consider that you owe me a beer. ;o)

Your projects have got me to hankering for one of my own. It's been a long time. Instead of a guitar, I may build a nice wooden pedalboard from scratch.

Yeah, I’d have to use a winch to beat you.

So, a blindfolded arm wrassling match is in order.

I'm a bit of a purveyor of cheap guitars.
Modern manufacturing has come so far that many of these instruments are just perfect for us tinkerers.

I have a 2002 Squier Bullet Strat that I have modded to the point that the only original pieces are the body & neck.
I even paid for a re-fret after 10 years because the neck just feels sooooo good.

It's had at least 5 incarnations and is about to get another very soon. (stay tuned)
It's just lots of fun doing this stuff! (and therapeutic I might add too!)

- SORRY! Just remembered that I'm a righty so... mods, feel free to delete my post :^(

All of those in favor of adopting Mick, signify by raising your left hand.
