Hope these pick work. As stated in earlier post, I didn't want to spend a fortune on my first build and I wanted a bit of a hybrid, somthing different to the guitars I already own, so I got a Squire Strat new for $150.00 and have taken the neck and hardware off it. Built the body from an Australian hardwood called White Beech - very fine grain maybe a tad heavy. Will be putting a Humbucker in the neck and a Seymour Duncan Twang Banger in the bridge, leaving the strat pickup in the middle. Going to finish unstained with Tru-Oil . If it plays well I will then build a Tele from some Tasmanian Oak I have. Thanks to everyone for all the help and advice I have recieved. have learnt heaps during my first build and hopefully won't make so many mistakes with the next one.
