    I travel for work quite a bit for extended periods and have left a trail of squires where I go since my custom shop doesn’t leave the house.

    I decided to throw together this little guy together with the relic look so I don’t care about scratches, flying or my 3 year old driving a metal truck/train/boat/airplane along it. It’ll be his one day anyways.

    Nothing fancy for a little over $1,000 Canadian (wife thinks it was a $300 project ;))but happy I got a local Alder body and Maple neck.
    Most parts are Gotoh (overall-meh) but CS Texas Specials Pups are a treat.

    Thanks to everyone who helped me find solutions to bridge and my first partscaster wiring.

    Wow. I really dig that...everything from the body and neck relicing to the headstock shape and logo. Nicely done.

    Thanks for the kind words.
    I like the relic look, but I know lots of people hate it. Nice thing with a partscaster having such low value is that resale isn’t a consideration and I don’t have to worry about purist criticism.
