    That orange and rosewood look beautiful together. I know you like to switch around parts,
    but please don't put a maple neck on there. Makes me want to do one myself, but some
    of those stratosphere bodies can be a little hefty.

    You know me well, heffus. :lol: I have been giving that some consideration. :eek:

    But, I think I will likely stick with the American Professional Rosewood neck that I have on there now.

    But WAIT! There's one more option...

    I have never been a fan of tort guards, but in considering guards for this guitar, I decided to have a look at this option. And, will admit that for the first time, I'm "sort of" liking the tort guard on this guitar... I think.

    I don't know if it will stay, but I'm not yearning to switch it out... yet anyway. Still mulling over the options.

    Black guard, Mint guard, or Tort guard

    Nice thing is they list the weight of their bodies. This guitar comes in at 7.9 lbs fully done. Not bad.

    I probably should have bought the one they have that has no parts on it at all, as I wind up replacing almost everything. I do like and will use the bridge, output jack/cup, and neck plate. I'm using the control plate right now, but in time will be replacing it with either an angled-switch plate or a toggle switch control plate.

    My eyes go right to the mint guard, but the bridge cutout on the bass side isn't rounded, so I don't know that I like that particular example.

    What possesses a supposedly grown man to say, ‘me likey’?

    "What possesses a supposedly grown man to say, ‘me likey’?"

    A sense of play, which is wonderfully abundant in children and sadly lacking in some adults.

    Thank you, Peegoo! And you're right... it's just a sense of play. :)
