    The white and the gold with the rosewood necks are spectacular - well done!

    I had a hankering for a hardtail Strat, and the Surf Green Esquire I posted many pages back wasn't working out for me, so I decided to re-home the Warmoth neck on a contoured Warmoth body with a Nashville rig.

    Plus a handful of other hotrod parts: Bridge Works "Signature" cutaway half plate; Bootstrap Pretzel and Vintage Pro pickups, RockRabbit control plate, Megaswitch M wired for bridge/neck in position 2.

    Tuned to B standard for gettin' low.

    Here's a partscaster I assembled from GFS and Dragonfire parts. The body, neck, and whammy are from GFS, and the loaded hum-hum pickguard is from GuitarPartsOnline

    Work in progress. Body made from 2x4's salvaged from a 1920's house (200+ years old), with body/arm cuts. Body completely salvaged, assembled, routed, finished by me :). Unbranded Neck from Reverb with Warmoth bone nut. Used Gretschbuckers, Wilkinson half bridge, .022uf cap on Bourns no-load tone pot, Wilkinson EZ Lok tuners. Modified tele deluxe PG. Solid brass screws used extensively.

    Just finished this build this week. Standard tele with a pine body with trans yellow stain under a tru-oil finish. Alnico 5 pups. My next build in the bench is a kind of Nashville tele with a tele bridge pup, a p90 middle and a hotrail in the bridge with a Strat small style headstock neck.
