    I remember following your original build. I think I favorited it, but I can't seem to find it.
    Could you possibly link it here?

    First, it is an amazing job, quite nice, but I am curious as to what remains from the original guitar? It looks like you could put the original Squier back together and have two guitars. So what did you end up using from the donor?

    Again, nice work - very impressive.

    Usually not keen on reliced guitars because I usually don't find them authentic but you sir have produced some sexy guitars that look truly authentic :p

    Erm, just the strap buttons. I never liked skinny necks & cos I was so pleased with the concept, I thought I'd get a better neck. Then I thought the body wood let down, plus not deep enough. It's a slippery slope hah.

    That's some funny stuff right there, I don't care who ya are! This must be the ultimate mod. Reminds me of the story of Grampa Joe's trusty old hammer. It was on its second head and its forth handle. Best dang hammer ever.

    Nice work,
    Rex

    P.S. I got lots of strap buttons if you want to send me those leftover scraps...

    Great build, it requires real dedication to get an authentic looking relic finish like that. This is how relics should look, not the quick and nasty belt sander jobs.

    Truly as good as it gets. Yours is one of the very few I've seen that doesn't scream that it has been beat up in the shop. I hope it sounds as good as it looks.
