I say that's the best way for Strats, especially sunburst ones, to look; nice guitar

IIRC the finish is supposed to look like one that was offered on some early 60's Corvettes.

she's almost done, i'm still tweaking the bridge a bit. i'm replacing the saddle height screws as they still stick up too far. maybe new saddles, dunno. but everything else, is done.

Gorgeous neck. I love when they cut the Rosewood that way. That green is rather nice!

Thanks! the board is ebony according to warmoth but it looks just like rosewood. it is a thick board which i prefer to the veneer boards. i like that it has a natural racing stripe on the board and semi flame to the neck.

i ended up changing the EADG saddles to graphtechs. i didn't bother with the Be strings. i think that's all sorted now.
