hi guys, i thought i would share a couple of pictures of my new custom strat body, i bought it off e-bay the other day so i haven,t received it yet, i bought from a guy in hong kong so i,m really hoping all my u.s.a. fender parts fit properly, according to the seller he assures me they will fit fine but i,ll have to wait and see? it won,t take long to figure out once i start the assembly, keeping my fingers cross!

That ... is gorgeous. I don't blame you at all for buying that up quick. Best of luck with assembly (post pics of that too!) and setup.

hi ivan, warmoth is making the neck right from scratch to my specs. that,s why it takes 6 to 8 weeks for delivery, i already have all the hardware except for pickups, so as soon as i get my neck and body i should be able to start assembly! because by then i should also have my pickups as well.

That body looks like it will produce a great tone. Who produced it?

I like everything about it except the sunburst finish but I dont even like Les Pauls with the Sunburst.

She still is a beauty
