Thank you for putting in so much forethought and care into the build, I do look very much forward to receiving it! No rush.
It makes me feel pretty good that someone that is Skilled in the Arts such as yourself has taken an interest in my endeavor! 😏

I am NOT super skilled, just determined to have fun! More of a player than a builder, though I can do a decent set up. No off the shelf guitar really interests me any more. But thank you, and I do like what you are building. Let me qualify my player statement by saying from the sample of most all the guitar playing I have heard from forum members, I would rank in the bottom third in skill and talent level.

I love the clear/white gibson knobs.

The Hipshot bridge is great and super comfy.

Watch out for the saddles. My strat has one from 2009/10. The 9s I use actually wore a groove in the high e saddle. Not bad, but just enough to click and make sitar sounds.
A bit of sand paper solved it twice.

I'm not sure if the saddles are any harder in newer versions.
How is our guitar coming along?
