Needs moar pearloid!

Sweet looking body though, although the completely white and new looking 'guard doesn't suit the aged vintage pickups.

I'd pop a pearloid scratchplate and also bright white knobs and bobbins.

I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.

Slick... +1 for a black pickguard
Call me old fashioned but I prefer 'rock music' that has electric guitars.

Either get a black pick guard or get one that looks more aged.
Maybe it's the lighting you used in the picture, but that pick guard doesn't look right on that guitar IMO.
Also you're a troll and you know it.

unless you are going for a vintage look...

consider putting prs trem on it. it's a drop in replacement for a 6 point strat bridge. it's not cheap though, good stuff never is.


also, i have a birdseye maple tele neck from warmoth i will gladly pack and ship to you for that rosey.

im going for kind of a vintage modern look if that makes sense lol

Quote by Silent_Crow13
To be honest, I'd kill to have a guitar like that.



it wasnt toooo expensive, its cost about 650 so far and i still need a bridge, so assuming i spend 100 on that itll be about 750 total, way less than an american strat and probably 10x better if you went a cheaper route with pickups and bridge ect you could have something close for about the price of a mexican strat, its all in how you finish the body, im no expect btw this is only my second finishing job on a guitar, but ive read up a lot on it.
#20
are u gonna be putting a finish on it cause it looks alot like my faded Gibby SG in that department. And w/o a finish it gets dented so damn easy. To give you an idea, if im not looking when i plug the cord into the input and i miss and hit the wood, BOOM there's a dent. Its that easy. so be cautious if you dont put the finish on

Warmoth makes such nice looking guitars. The Strat I had was beautiful.

Is too bad I can never get along with the sound of them
