    Now to me the typical guitar body resembles the shape of a female...no offense intended, no concern if someone is...when the router slipped while shaping this pine body I decided to smooth it out and let the wood decide what it wanted to be. Airbrushed with what I decided to call "nekkid burst," then sprayed with purple pearl in the first coat of lacquer. The color changes like crazy depending on lighting, from flesh tones, to purple, to blue, to pink...

    Seymour Duncan "hot for tele" pickups, four way switch, the Mighty Mite compound radius strat neck plays great after a fret job and properly setting up the nut.

    I used Acrylic lacquer instead of nitro because I'm just not fond of waiting around for months...as it is, this build has been going since July.

    1.5" body thickness, that's why there's a blank control plate on the back...paper thin pine didn't seem like a good thing to leave as-is.

    In retrospect I wish I'd gone ahead and done the reversed controls...but this one is in the "might keep if nobody buys it" stash, if it's not gone in a couple months I'll do it then :D
