That looks insane. I think a fender neck with a maple fretboard would complete it

The maple neck will be at a later time...this guitar has made me light on cash for the moment haha. But to those of you saying to get matching pickup covers, I like them this way! its all a preference, but thanks to everyone saying that they like it, means a lot!

Also I forgot to mention, this guitar was made from the spec sheet from fender of the Dave Murray Signature Strat. Mine obviously has a few tweaks that I though would look a little better.

Definetly looks good... how does it play? how does it sound? could you make some sound clips?

When you break a bass string, that snapping sound is the sound of six dollars going down the crapper.

I like those pickup covers too, very distinctive. Please let me know if you ever plan on selling that beauty

Wow, that guitar is absolutely beautiful! It has honestly inspired me to buy a squier as my next modding project. I really like the mismatched pickups, it gives it a unique look. Have fun with it!

I will try to post a video of some noodling around with it tonight to show you. And @slashfan226 I will let you know, I am actually very open to the idea already for a fair offer, this was more of just a guitar to make. If you have a offer, I will consider it!

Nice guitar man! One of the nicest squiers i ever scene... How much did it cost?

The squier itself was a broken one on ebay for $100. The parts added up to about $450 in the end. But it plays like butter!

Very Dave Murray-ish.

And well yes, I'll enjoy the carpal tunnel and tendonitis, because trying to get one is clearly smarter than any word you have spoken thus far.

here is the link to a video I just made of me noodling around with it. The feedback is from my amp when it's on the lead channel, the guitar makes absolutely no unwanted noise.

no sweater sounds were ever uttered from a squier haha.

also, I'm not trying to show any skill in this video, im just noodling around to give you an idea of the tones.
