I don't recall the moment, but I must have seen a custom shop picture of a bound Strat body, but I wasn't going to be too particular. However, try finding a double bound Strat body with NO contour. I got very, very lucky. The problem was that I prefer hardtails, but the only body I could find was cut for a trem, so that's why you're going to see odd little details in the pictures. I got blank pickguards to cut as needed, and that was a learning experience, to say the least The current pickups are just 'ok', and they sound fine, but I did find a nice pair of DeArmond Dyanasonics that will go in, eventually. I had a custom laser engraved mounting plate done from a picture of my wife, and in the other shot the guitar is leaning up against my 1961 Tremolux 6G9-A head combo.
