    Motor,

    That is one of my favorite builds on this forum! Remarkable work...

    One day I plan to make a tribute to Jerry Garcia's "Alligator" Strat . And maybe David Gilmore's "Black Strat."

    In a more generic sense, I turned my Squier into a nocaster tribute. It was originally a black and white Affinity with modern hardware and wiring.

    This is my Keith Urban / 40th anniversary tele tribute. I built the body and still plan on building a flamed neck and changing to golf hardware.

    Two comments - the George Harrison tele - unreal - and you did that for $210? How did you find rosewood so cheap?

    The Prince tribute - just awesome. I want to do one of those. I've heard that the pick guard is hard to find. Any thoughts as to where one might come across one of those?

    And - I did a Frankenstein build (along with 1,000 other people): Weber 2.JPG Weber 6.JPG

    The $210 Challenge did not have to include the price of the wood..

    EDIT: Oops! Nope... I mis-remembered that!

    Materials List:
    *** Body Lumber - Primary - rosewood - ebay 35.00
    *** Body Lumber - Secondary - leftover maple - ebay 1.30
    *** Neck Lumber - rosewood - ebay 10.33
    *** Skunk Stripe Lumber - leftover maple - ebay 0.50

    The rosewood was a great big long 2 by 4, and a couple small pieces of 4/4.
    I milled it with a straight edge and flush cut router along with a table saw.

    I had enough left over to build a couple other rosewood necks.
    OldGloryCaster had a neck made out of the leftovers.
