    First thing I noticed was there is something missing? Well, something is where it shouldnít be. There is timber where the tremolo route should be. Must have been a Friday afternoon rush job. No worries, Iíll see if Adam can post me out a tremolo route hole All attempted jokes aside, it will be good experience / practice to do my own route.
    The plan for this one is a tribute to one of my favourite guitar slingers of all time. Any guesses just from the gear shown. A clue is Iím on the hunt for a left handed gold tremolo for this one the rougher the better if anyone has one kicking around.

    Iíll update as I progress. Thanks for looking...

    What a weird thing for them to forget! Good luck with the routing. Curious to see what your plans are for the build

    It looks like a hardtail body.
    Best to email Adam and get it replaced.

    Iíve emailed Adam to see what my options are. The body is a nice piece of timber. Too nice for me to tear it up

    Could get a Tune-o-matic bridge, and make a T-O-M strat......

    Go Avant garde and add a traditional archtop bridge and a trapeze tail piece!
