Absolutely stunning flame maple, and I like dual F holes, but F holes do NOT look "right" on a Strat. Just MHO...  That being said, how much ya want for it?  :)

If it was a little more in the bottom of the body, I would find it nice... but the controls would be compromised...

Yea, the F holes look a bit high, but then again, there's nothing on the body, after it's together I'm sure it will be beautiful. Other than that...Stunning!

It's growing on me. Is it "hollow" or chambered?
Yes, both.  It's called a Hollow Strat and it full of small chambers. They are not the large "Thinline" chambers.

If it was done up as a thinline, no back cover panel... all controls passed thru the f/hole, then I'd be rather impressed.

I dig that, looks very nice.

Since you have some standards for the showcase items, I would like to see dual f-holes for all L5 bodies.

For some reason, I just don't dig F-holes on Strats....just me.  That second one is a true show-stopper!

To be fair I don't like the Bengal burst  :tard:
But this natural binding with all red of that Bengal would look as sexy as it could be!

1. I wouldn't buy an f-hole strat but kudos for producing something new, make 20 and see if people buy them?
2. Bengal Burst and that kind of huge quilt just isn't my thing personally. I thought you guys couldn't bind a strat with a forearm contour?

1. People buy them already. We just haven't had them on the Showcase for awhile so we made some.
2. We can bind a Strat and JBass body drop top style with conventional material:

But you are seeing the first natural mask binding that we're trying out with that Bengal Burst.
