New barncaster day. Following up on a prior thread asking if anyone built guitars just to use the parts laying around, I created a Stratesgy -- half Strat, half SG. I salvaged some lumber that was once a shelf in an old shed. The best part was gouging and poking holes to make it look older. I call it Sunshine because the pickguard is made from my old Florida license plate. It has a Fender neck with three Fender tuners and three Hipshot. The P90s were from an Epiphone Casino. Wilkinson hardtail bridge. On/off mini toggles for each pickup, and Switchcraft jack. I could have put pots in it, but what the heck? I was feeling minimalist. I freehanded the body shape to fit the wood I had, and I made a pattern for the neck pocket, pickup recesses and bridge location. I freehanded the router cuts to make it look jenky. Stain was shoe dye under shellac. Tomorrow I will crank it up and see how it sounds. Too late tonight. Good times.
