I guess the soloist will now be a 'regular' strat!!

So I noticed this body got dropped to $245, so I just couldn't let it go!!! Nice Steal!

Chambered Korina with a Rosewood top! this could be a big brother for my Thinline (with the same specs!)
all I know is that I am feckin excited about this one!
I hope the red-ish rosewood is going to be a great match with the padouk neck! - Warmoth guys, is this as red in person as it is on the pic???

heh I was behind this purchase the whole way.. "That korina back looks better than my korina back! Play it upsidedown so people can see it!" hehe  :laughing7:

there are so many shades and colors in that korina.. it has to look fantastic after finishing!
That big ol knot in the belly cut looks ehm.. rustic ;)

I am really excited!
I slapped some naphta on to see what it will look like, and it is amazing!!
really dark though, but I like that!

Gary, the circular grain seems to be a big knot! and I absolutely dont mind it!

I am still deciding which neck to use..
since the rosewood is so red, I am leaning towards the padouk!!

The red of the padouk makes a nice contract with the back.. I think
