what are you going to do about the huge gaping hole at the bottom where the cavity rout is?

he can take a slaab of woo and glue it to that side to even it out and sand it and then paint it over to get it to look ok, but i have a feeling it is kind of smallish. so you might wan to glue a littl bit more woo on to it and to get the real V shape you can glue wood to the end of the two v sections and shape them out, unless you want the shape you have in which case, congrats

... i don't know what to say. IT looks like it was hap hazardioulsy just cut without any prior planning or thought

It looks kinda rediculous.
-Fix the hole
-fix the part that looks like it got chopped off
-sand the cornor where of the V
-Finally do a completely new paint job.

thats pretty wicked almost looks like a decapitated rrhoads should be sick when its done
#15
The top side doesn't look straight... On the top left it's all wavy. Plus the big holes as others have mentioned. To be honest I would have kept it as it was...
#16
well when i got the guitar it was pretty ****ed anyway and the electrics were messed up so thanks for the honest criticism

I actually... like it! I'd pay 50 bucks for it depending on the electronics and how the finish turns out when you are done.

Cough... I am working on mine. It's odd's and end's and strat copy piece's. It'll be done this summer when I have time to sand. (Pluse its like below 20 here and I wouldn't paint out side in a garage with that)

Though I will be merging the tele twang sound in with my strat.

I have played both.
Les Paul only gives the crunchy rock sound.
While as Strat, can do blues, and all, but just can't do distort/heavy.

ok it did cut through one control knob and the selector switch but with the scratchplate i cut it and made a rough version of what it will be, i have moved the selector switch and knob so its working electrics now(except for neck pup but im workin on it) i have glued a peice of wood on to the bottom to make it a flying v shape and now have ernie ball super slinkie strings on it so more pics soon if my camera decides to work.

^ exactly, no offense, but this was a bad idea IMO.
also, please read up on proper painting technique, it will help out in the long run.

i really want you guys' opinion
1 - the body shape is a bit strange with the squared-off upper tail.

2 - it looks totally hacked to have the saw cut for the upper tail intruding on the lower tail.

3 - forget the trem hole, what do you plan to do with the opening on the edge of the control cavity? that's gonna look butchered unless you do much better work than you have so far.

4 - the paint work looks horrible.

5 - this thing is gonna nose-dive badly.

well i have 2 strats in my collection and i find them quite bland
1. i am re-doing the paint job
2. i am using the cad-cam machine at my school to make a new scratchplate
3. i am closing the hole PROPERLY
4. i have put a block of wood on the left tail piece to make it a proper v

it doesnt look great but plays normally i am sorting the cosmetics out asap(on monday as thats when i have access to all the heavy-duty tools) thats all for now

Thank you for the honest pointers and criticism

I might post some pics over the weekend if i have time
