    This one took a while.... and it's still not done until I cut the nut slots and add the string T. Pots were bought new and are dated like 16th week of 2018.

    And then I'll want a floating bridge so there's the whole Strat set-up PITA.

    The parts include GFS body and their US vintage spec tremolo bridge, no name Alnico 5 pickups, middle RWRP, awful Chinese eBay neck, some nice pots and jack, Fender knobs, bone nut. etc.

    Damn neck really turned me off from finishing it. I'll probably eventually get an Allparts SRO-62 if the rest of it sounds decent.

    Master Volume/Tone with a middle pickup blend knob pretending to be the second tone knob.

    That's cool. I am impressed by anyone who has the skill to build a guitar.
