    Just completed this inexpensive partscaster and thought I'd share some pics.

    That's quite a good looking "inexpensive" neck!

    Where is it from?

    And the serial number is interesting...

    F-UK

    That required me to do a double-take!

    Really cool! I like the blue washed look.
    How did you do the bridge and control plate?
    Nice job:cool:

    They’re custom made. I’ve got a set exactly the same I’ve had for ages. Must get around to using them. My initial plan is a white double bound to really bring out the bling.

    @ OP - cool looking guitar. I love that blue whitewash look.

    Two way heel adjust?

    Is the flame real or screened on? It looks beautiful, especially for that price!

    Did you have to do much fret dressing? Leveling? Sharp edges?

    Very nice!

    There are some similar engraved bridges/plates available on Amazon that have caught my eye. I just wish they had matching pickup rings for the neck pickup, too... :)

    Guitar Fetish or eBay purchase from Asia is most likely. Was a few years back. Sorry I don't recall the specific specifications.

    Hi jfgesquire, The flame is real and it's heal truss adjustment, there was some sharp edges on the frets ends, 10 minutes to sort but there was no levelling needed. It's a chunky u shape neck with a similar feel to my 72 Deluxe RI and I'm very pleased with it's playability using Fender250 9s.

    I agree:

    It's been a bad year.

    Nice build!
