Hello everybody! I'm 16 and I've build about 3 guitars from parts with stuff I had around the house. But decided to try to build a pawn shop guitar for under $200.


I found some no name strat at a pawn shop today with a bad neck. (had to point out to them it was warped) for $30. So I'm going to do a guitar fetish build. I play in a band and my main axe is a prs ce24 and my backup is a michael Kelley vex. I want to add a 3rd gig-able guitar.


Here is the guitar:








Painted Pickguard black:



Here is what I ordered from gf:


Strat style maple neck with graphite nut - $45

Black Gotoh style locking tuners - $28

Vintage Black tremolo, import, Chinese/mexico - $ 26

GFS power rails, Black and white -$36

String tree rollers, Black - $6


And I am going to order the VEH when it's in stock for my applecaster.

Here is the applecaster. Because it reminds me of the inside af an apple computer.





Hope you enjoy my build as I go and I'll update when I get the parts in.


Thanks!

I would call it a build. you can't really call it a mod when the only thing stock is a body. cool build though. and I dig the computer scratch plate on the other one.
