I have always loved the Monterey stratocaster that Hendrix used. And i love John Mayer, and he always uses it too. And i found a body that someone made to look very close to it on ebay. I was wondering if this would sound good and would be a good investment. I am hoping that it's just not a cheapy body for like a squire or something so i was wondering if you guys could help me out.

Heres the link

its says its not a fender body so its not american and most likely not made in mexico body either, so im thinkin its a squier or some knockoff....you could ask for EXACT measurements (dimensions, specs) cuz Fenders arent the exact same size and shape as a squier, and especially if its other than a squier

It's made of alder which is a decent and very common wood to make a guitar. I can acertain that it is not a Squier Affinity body as those are made of agathis, which is what makes them crap. At that price it is totaly worth it whether it is a Fender or not.

Don't bump after 15 minutes.

Why bump anyway? What do you want to be told?

I found quite a few inconsistencies, but it's not terrible. Some douche bag set up an auto-bid bot on it though so it's pretty much impossible to get now

Says 2 piece alder, which I think is American but I could be wrong
#19
has your question not already been answered. Its been distinguished what wood it is, that its a common wood. therefore, is good for guitar building so will last you.
An investment is a bit of a strong term, as it won't go up in value tbh, its a home paint job.
It'll be a good project if you like it,
go for it.

If it's American or Mexican i will bid on it in a second!!

^It's probably a custom job.
I dunno... I think the cash spent on that body would be put to better use on your amp...

But, do what you want.

but if you stick some nice pickups in it, don't have a cheap neck, it'll sound pretty decent. depends how much money you want to throw into it.

You can just make your own. I built my own monterey strat but I built a lefty that I flip over and play as a righty. It is a neat project and a lot of fun to do. You should give it a try.

Ok i have another question. Instead of buying a white body, i have a highway one sunburst body laying around and if i spray it red like the website says and put a finish on it or a gloss then would that work out better than buying this body.

It is really not that hard actually. Paint markers help for the small details and paitence. On the web are many great sites of how to do it If you look at Jimi's original from the Monterey film you will see his is nowhere near as polshed looking as the one put out by fender. Of course he painted his backstage before the show and had dropped a few tabs of acid. i think everyone should build their own guitar at least once. It brings you that much closer to the instrument when you put your soul and sweat into it.

My sister just looked at it and said that it looked tacky. But i guess that is a girl talking. She doesn't know the history of this guitar.

i dunno, looks pretty good to me. if its 2 piece alder and the finish is decent, id say it would be a nice enough body. heck, if i needed another guitar body id bid on it.

I think you're better off trying to paint one yourself.

On a different note, feed your Fulldrive 2 to a homeless child, it'll do more good that way.
