I had some parts and pieces and so I decided I needed to learn some stuff and get a project to practice on and I'm trying to do anything to avoid one work project that I just can't finish... ugh! I hate completion anxiety. Anyway, I still have a long way to go with this one.. but I thought I'd show you my progress tonight... I'm calling it the deluxe... because I have a cool car emblem that I"m going to mount on it when I'm done... I haven't finished the headstock yet either... oh well, I will. its got a pickguard I got for 5.00, a bill lawrence neck strat pickup and a lawrence 280 bridge pickup... stew mac pots etc and a joe barden bridge.. some cool klusons.. it needs some serious setup.. but, it will be cool when I'm done.
