    Was telling a co-worker about how my 12yr old wants a guitar for his B-Day.
    He wants one "like your black one but with a white pickguard" (points at my Squier Custom II w/p90's)

    Co-Worker says " No S#!* "

    1 30 pack of Coors banquet later:

    its an 02 anniversary MIC, just needs some cleanup, new strings and new switch (broken off)

    neck is very nice, but i will probably swap it out for a rosewood FB strat neck i have on another partscaster that has bigger frets

    anyway, love it when a plan comes together, pics cause it happened, and Happy Friday everyone!

    Thanks Man, doin what i can.

    This will actually be a tough one to give up, cause its a perfect candidate for a HH conversion with no pickguard, which is something ive wanted to do for a long time, but hey, always next time, right?

    Cleaned it up a bit, thru a rosewood neck on and mocked up a custom headstock logo

    Looking sharp i think....

    things to do:
    compensated 3 barrel saddles will be here tomorrow for a bubba mod.
    needs a w/b/w pickguard
    replace broken 3way switch with a strat one i have in parts bin (they look to be the same, cept the extra indents)
    reshape the headstock to be a bit more stratish
    decide on the chrome vs white knobs
    profit

    Nice! Tell me though, how much do you love your P90 Custom II? I think they are one of the top sleepers out there. I love mine.

    I love it

    I'm not really qualified to express how freekin awesome it is, but my friends that know what they are doing with a guitar would steal it if they weren't afraid.

    If it were to be stolen, I would hunt them to the ends of the Earth, harvest their body parts, and sell them to buy another.

    I like it so much that I found another body on eBay, and am currently making it's humbucker evil twin. Irish twins if you will....

    It IS one of the best Squier guitars ever made, IMHO.

    I wish I had told my parents at that age that I wanted a guitar. Of course that would have been in the middle of a transition period for Fender... I was 12 in the summer of 1985.... well done, dad!

    2 weeks later, its done... (new project hanging to its right)
    IMG_20181116_124708653.jpg IMG_20181116_124803857.jpg

    2002 anniversary Affinity
    Bubba Mod w/ comp. brass saddles
    Neck from a Rondo tele, minor fretwork, reshaped headstock and custom logo.
    5 way switch, fullsize pots

    Action is a bit high, as need to do a fret level around the 13th to 15th, but im happy with it as is, and way better than i got it IMO
    just waiting on b/w/b pickguard, but for all intents and purposes, this is done.

    thanks for looking, and Happy Friday everyone!
