Default Latest build is done!

No, not a truck. It's a Stratocaster *type* guitar. I built it with the following,

Stew-Mac Alder body, Nitro-cellulose lacquer sand and sealer, primer and surf green paint. 12 coats of nitro lacquer clear. Let it dry for 30 days then wet sand up to 12,000 (yep, twelve thousand) grit then hand polish.

Maple neck shaped and sanded and done with Tru-oil gun stock finish.

Mint green pick guard
Neovin noiseless pickups

Period correct trem, saddles and tuners etc.

Plays as sweet as she looks. I applied the Fender decals, this is NOT a real Fender. It's built better.
