Why not a "show your partscaster" sticky?

    I like to see what other folks have been building, seen some darned gorgeious partscasters here on TDPRI. Maybe there could be a "show your..." at the top? I went back several pages to find a "show your partscaster" thread and couldn't find one, either.

    I'm in the 50+ crowd and new to forums and have been avoiding getting eye-glasses for many years, so it's possible I missed something.

    Start a new thread showing off your own partscaster, then if it gets enough attention (e.g. lots of replies), you can ask the mods to sticky it. :cool:

    [EDIT] The "What's on your workbench today?" thread is pretty huge at this point (952 pages!), and it's not a sticky, so attention is not necessarily a benchmark for sticky-worthiness, but it can't hurt to ask.

    Ok, here's mine: Double bound, "bee stung" bound block inlay neck, Gibson minihum in the neck position, conventional Tele bridge pickup, 3 barrel brass compensated bridge, and custom control plate featuring individual volume controls for each pickup, plus universal tone. 20200611_170819.jpg 20200516_153341.jpg

    27” B-B baritone Fender neck. Fralin stock T pickups, 4 way switching. Treble bleed circuit. Glitter black guard on Oly white. Sounds fat. Plays great.

    parts2.jpg parts1.jpg Sure, why not have one here! This is my last partscaster and can't forsee every parting it out. A recently aquired Fender Original 50s body, Fender USA neck, Mastery bridge, and Glendale plates/knobs. There were several of these bodies available at the time and this one really caught my eye. Strung with GHS nickel rockers 10-52 in Bakersfield tuning.

    this is exactly what my current partscaster project will look like when it’s finished! No matter the parts, it’s a great look

    @fleezinator I think yours might be my favourite in this thread: stands out but not overstated.

    My latest is below. Allparts Fat neck, Alder Hosco body, Tru-Oil finish, P90-voiced bridge, Duncan lipstick neck. Tuned to Eb with 10-54 strings. A guitar built to be mauled.
