    Like many others, I dig these guitars, but Im not paying for a CS. I want a black one PU, heavy reliced. Ive read there are some good builders on this forum. Any takers can email me at [email protected]
    Should say I live in Norway, but Im covering the shipping of course

    Hi Hermok, I recommend you contact Matt at MJT Guitars. Here is a pic of the LaCabronita I built using a body, neck and some aged parts from them.
    Cheers

    Funnyman :p Wonder if only a Custom Shop will do the trick. MJT looks like a good plan

    I agree with contacting MJT guitars for La Cab style guitar. As I type this they are building for me a black single pickup medium relic La Cab style. So far so good. They seem very easy to work with and seem to go the extra mile to accomodate the customer.

    I couldn't find the exact neck that I wanted from the selection at Allparts so Matt offered a custom option from Musikraft, for a modest upcharge and I was able to get exactly what I was after.

    I'm about 3 weeks or so into the proccess and I am very excited to see it thru the build out. I would say MJT is probably the most economical way to get the relic treatment and a nitro finish.

    Good luck with your decision.

    FWIW, I built this myself for about $500 in materials. . .

    Specs:

    Rutters sugar pine body
    Warmouth Guancalo Alves neck
    TV Jones pickup
    Fender American Standard bridge
    Wilkinson vintage style tuners
    Electrosocket
    CTS pots
    professional setup after my build

    I finished it myself with barn stain and Minwax lacquer. You could go with a professionally finished body, not spend a whole lot more than I did, but still spend far less than a check to the good folks at Fender. Won't have the resale, but. . .
