I did order a roasted maple neck for this. A boatneck with Azurite Malachite dots. It shipped Tues. Here’s hoping it gets here by the weekend.

The package weighs 2 lbs. which means the neck will weight something less than that. I haven’t weighed this pao ferro neck, but it is hefty.

Nice Leftee!

I also noticed how well the burst came up. Good work.

Is the body walnut timber, or just walnut stain?
And where did you get it?

My latest build (hardtail strat) has stalled a bit. More like a unanticipated left turn. (no offence!)

Didn't we say a while ago we were "done with building for a while"??? HAH!!!

It's Walnut. I found these bodies on Reverb - out of Canada.

Here are some updated pics with the new neck. It's not wired of set up yet.

I’m waiting on a three-way switch and - stick a fork in it - it’s done.

Very nice paint job and the black hardware sets it off.

I know it's stained, but 'Nice hand rub' doesn't sounds as good as 'Nice paint job'. ;oD
