You continually blow my mind Gil! As long as I've been lusting after stratocasters you managed to take the old and familiar and make it look fresh and exciting! Artistry!
The action looks so enticing on those strats...the 3T looks like you'd have trouble sliding a razor under that last fret.
Is that in the area of the action yours ship with?
Les Pauls are pretty, but Strats are the epitome of Form Follows Function design when it comes to guitars, and THAT is art
I set them up with almost zero action just to make sure the neck is perfect.
Some keep it as is and some change it to their preffered normal playing action.
The true art is playing them properly (-;
You really are an inspiring human being
All that work and you don't even make your own Pickup covers or stamped bridge saddles...pffft...weak
Seriously though Gil, I've seen a few of your builds on here (your Jazz Bass, Les Paul, and this strat) and I always find them informative and AMAZING. If I could afford to have you build a guitar for me - I'd do it in a heartbeat.
Thanks for sharing the talents and skill you bring to guitar luthier-ing...
I'll hit you up for some advice if I'm ever ready to tackle more than just modding a guitar I already own.
I just googled "strat build" and found this thread in the result page.
You have done a really awesome work here. כל הכבוד!
You forgot to us a set of strings with an unwound 3rd string! ha. What a beautiful guitar. I want 20! I can only afford maybe 2 or 3 screws or a piece of wire though:'( Great work!
ten years later I still feel a strange feeling, embarrassed to reread my posts .... what I wanted to say is that the old guitars, amplifiers etc..have even another smell, feel ... in conclusion I arrived to think that only by bringing back to life a man of that period can one replicate a stratocaster of that period
Hello Preeb!! Where did you get those templates of strat 54 58? i saw some templates but i am not sure they are the same era... super nice work ! very impressed.
This thread is 9 years old. Read his other build threads and you'll see that he makes his own from actual instruments and no they aren't for sale as many have asked.
Some of them are actually alive and have a functional mouth. Memory however.. is another issue (-;
That is one old thread.. I don't buy templates as I cut them here from original guitars.
54-58 are pretty much the same. Early 54's are slightly different though.
Absolutely beautiful workmanship, excellant documentation and was apleasure to read 10 years later , Sir you are an artist!
Stunningly beautiful work with incredible attention to detail. I'm not a builder, just a struggling player, but you've done everyone here a great service by sharing your knowledge. Simply, thanks!
