    Well, lessee. I got a complete Jaguar in parts, 'cept for the body and the neck, and I got that black Elpee body that James fixed for me that needs a neck, plus pickups wound (got all the parts for that), and all the other parts; while doing a partial straightening up, I found some mahogany I'd forgotten I'd had, and I think it's enough for an LP junior, something I'd like to try, plus I was thinking about hitting you up for some tips on Strat building. I've never done a Strat from scratch, seems like it might be fun. And then there's all that aluminum melting stuff stashed in a corner of the basement waiting for warmer weather. . . . .

    I'm ready to see whatever project you come up with next. I sure would love a money printing machine.

    Strats are fun but I'm growing tired of building them. I built one for myself, played it at church and that started the whole ball rolling. I've made 6 of them in the last 2 years all for friends and one I made and donated for a silent auction. Everybody wants one now. I have another to build for a friend. I do like doing the arm and belly contour by hand though. They never seem to be exactly the same. I can't wait for the weather to improve to get back to my Brainy build. You should give it a go.

    So build that on a Tele. I have done that on several of mine and that fits even better :)
