I thought I'd try my hand at something a bit different. About 6 weeks ago I ordered this body - chambered mahogany with a quilt maple top. The neck pocket is shaped for a Strat neck. The neck will be a Pau Ferro Strat neck (the whole neck is PF) I found on Reverb. I think I had it bolted to a Tele body, at one point, just for a picture.

I've got a set of Fender Original Vintage '52 pickups to go in it.

I stained the body yesterday.

Hah! Kidding aside, that will be tré cool.

edit to add: I really need to have a go at a dye burst. That seems to be your thing lately and it's inspiring me to try one.

I thought you posted in the wrong thread.

Lol

Now I get it.

To be precise, it’s a 2” radius.

I bought a hunk of 2” dowel and cut it up for body sticks. It’s the perfect size to get a good grip.

Yeah, and just make the frets go all the way around the neck - you could bend forever!!! LOL!

Sorry. I missed this popping back up. I’m waiting on the jack cup and it’s done. Maybe in today’s mail.
