Great photos! Great guitar, congrats. I would love to own one like that. (hhmmmmmm....)
Why the heck is the pickguard plastic wrap still on it? Is that a personal touch thing?

VERY nice.  Did you eventually lower the pots so the knobs fit more flush?

I am not normally a huge sonic blue fan, but this build looks really sweet.
Plus, it's a HARDTAIL :headbang1:
Great pics and a beautiful geetar.

Awesome. Totally awesome. I thought the white pearloid looked great - but the tortoise is even better.

'Very nice.
I wanna build a hardtail Strat.

I'd like to know the specs; especially what bridge and tuners those are.

Definately Schaller Mini Locking tuners
I think the bridge is narrow Fender hardtail with graphtech ferraglide saddles
