    The Hong Kong rosewood neck I have had several years and got an old cherry Schecter body finally this week. I have some correct pickups, just have to cut the nut and install tuners and pups. :)

    I would really like to have one of those California era Schecter clone tele's, I had a couple of the strats, I thought the components and necks were first rate, superior to anything Fender was putting out at the time.

    You powder coated the pickguard? That's nuts! I'll be honest, I preferred the look of the worn brass(?) guard. But that's just me. It's your guitar to enjoy. How's it sound/play?

    No this is a different Schecter guard I had, powder coated steel. I want to hear the difference. I may put the brass one in there down the line. I have to cut the nut yet, but my friend does it best. ;)

    Finally got her done yesterday...
    Super resonant unplugged and a real treat plugged in. Powerful pickups that will snarl when pushed but sweeten up when slightly backed off... very acoustically loud!!!
    More pics later...
