I finished my guitar! Actually, I finished it a while ago, but was too lazy to write a paragraph about it and take good pictures. My goal was to make a guitar I could use for most everything (maybe a combination between a gibson and a ibanez, my two favorite brands.) So here it is!...








Note that I installed pickup rings later, so that looks better now.
Complete specs:
Body- swamp ash (strat shape)
neck- maple w/compound radius maple fretboard (strat shape) 22 frets
Bridge+nut- floyd rose licensed
pickups- epiphone something (neck) duncan pearly gates (bridge)
controls- lp style

so there it is! I hope to have a sound sample soon.

Look at the topic for my guitar...

Gear:
Homemade strat (You still need to look at its topic!)
Squier strat (probably going to get rid of it and get another guitar instead) :)
Line 6 spider amp (not actually used for anything, just acts as a speaker)
Digitech Gnx2 (kind of old, but cheap, and sounds amazing!)

Wow really cool! Do you will "write" something on headstock? I mean like a brand name?

Edit: could you take a picture of guitar back?

I might do a logo, but I don't know which one will fit! Gibson wouldn't work... Ibanez would be too sharp for a strat headstock... and it's definitely not like the my squier or the fenders I have played.
And about the back, I don't have pictues but it is in the same red finish as the front. The sides of the guitar are painted black.

Nice!
You'll have to give us the lowdown on the specs ... pickups, hardware, electronics, wood type, finish, etc.
Let us know how it plays. If yours is like the one I finished lately, there will be some tweaking of the action & setup to do before you have it exactly the way you want it.
