    The astute viewer will notice that I cleverly MISSED on the pickup pole alignment by about 1-2mm!
    First run blues.

    Simple fix - will just recut the pickguard and move the pup slots to their correct location. Dumb.

    Have been playing it today. Really liking it. The TexMex pups are nasteeeeee.

    Great looking guitar stones..

    I have a strat with the TexMex, and they are awesome. They respond well to height, lower them if you want them clean.

    Those fret markers are the business.

    Great colour scheme all round.

    Admittedly, I'd normally be turned off by black hardware, pup covers and fancy inlays, but there is nothing that I don't LOVE about that guitar! Job very well done. Cheers!
