Body:
Chambered basswood
5A flame maple top
Natural masked binding
All the contours

Neck:
3A flame maple
Pau ferro fingerboard

Hardware:
Suhr SSH+/FL/SSV pickups
Sperzel tuners
Graphtech saddle

Weight is 5lbs 5oz - balance is perfect, sat down or with strap.

I'm going to get the guitar Plek'd in a couple of weeks to get the best out of the fret setup, but it's already turned out great. Tonally it's a monster, and I think I've achieved what I set out to do, which was to create a guitar that could do the best sounds from my Strat (pos 2 + 4) and the best sounds from my PRS (full humbuckers).

Very very happy with it....

Very nice job!


Curious about the bridge... where did you get it? and is that the standard Strat flatmount bridge rout?

Hehe - it was seeing your tele that made me want to do this one!
The bridge is a standard strat humbucker bridge (53mm).
Cheers

Edit: The bridge came from Warmoth, but I've put Graphtech saddles on it.

The HSH pup setup might not be the most visually appealing, but it sure does create for wonderful tonal variability - I've done something very similar on my W  :blob7:

It's Tiger Eye dye. I sent Warmoth a picture of a Suhr guitar that I liked the finish of, and they matched it pretty well :)
