Hi Just wanted to post a picture of my budget parts-caster hybrid. It's an Encore body, Burswood neck (with reshaped headstock) construction. I filled the trem-rout with a sapele off-cut and bit of skirting-board. It has an Artec Alinico V in the bridge position and a very heavily wax-potted 'vintage' Marlin pickup in the neck. The latter was going to be a temporary measure but it sounds great. A wood off-cut fills the center pickup hole and a sailor jerry rum bottle top stoppers the spare Pot hole. A friend did some fret-levelling and I refinished the neck with gun-stock wax. It has real 'twang' and I'm really pleased with it - it probably cost about £65:00 to put together.
