    Found this thing today. Found it locally on facebook.

    My plan is to build a new body for it and then gift it to my daughter who has been asking for a guitar of her own. Think I'm going to make a custom shape but it has to be blue. It's 19.5" scale... Anyone have any suggestions as far as pup configuration etc...? I was thinking maybe a couple mini humbuckers but not sure. I do have some strat pup's lying around too.[​IMG]

    I think it's pretty cool as is, but a blue paint job would be even better ...

    Could you measure from the nut to the 12th fret?

    Here's a mockup of what I'm thinking about turning this guitar into...
