Cherry Burst Strat


Just got the body and bolted the neck and trem...  Those were the only things I could do that didn't require ME drilling a hole yet.  I'm going to mount the pickguard and output jack next (still waiting for tuners).  I guess using masking tape and sharp drills is the key to not chipping the finish.  Man, I'm soooo nervous to drill the first hole..

Blue tape is dead cheap, use it like there's no tomorrow!

PS: She's right purty.

That´s a sweet sweet finish.
I´m looking for something similar for my first Strat ever.

I think it is, he just lives near the equator.

Is it because I live in Australia that all my guitars are upside down? :doh:

No, it's the backwards flushing toilets that frighten us here in the colonies.
Really nice strat there.

If you're nervous about drilling with a dremel, try a twist gimlet.

3mm one is IDEAL for strat pickguard screws.

I used mine exclusively on my strat build. Just tape up the finish.

Hey, can you re-post that pick right side up? I bet it will look good then

I guess that was the Inverse-Hendrix-handed version.......  :laughing7: 

All better now!
