    So I got a bit more done.

    Neck carved.



    Drilled the holes to attach the neck.



    Drilled the string-through holes and holes for the bridge mounting screws. Unfortunately the alignment of the string-through holes on this one wasn't great but I'm not going to bother plugging and redrilling. I also did the belly carve and started tidying up both the belly carve and the arm carve.





    I just need to tidy up a small flat spot on the fretboard, file a couple of high spots on the back of the neck and then fret the neck and I'll be on the sanding and finishing.

    That's looking great Woltz.
    You'll be glad I don't live in Canberra anymore... I would have become a serial pest by now!

    What's your neck carve like? Standard C-shape, kind of medium thickness?

    I see your wearing thongs now. Snow must be gone from the Brindabellas

    Thanks mate. Haha you'd be welcome to come and have a look if you visit. It's roughly around a mid 60's C shape. Haha it's only just warm enough for the thongs, as you know September/October is a weird time in Canberra, one day it's shorts and thongs, next day you need the central heating again.

    Just seen this thread and read all the way through.

    There is some real skill in that build and the wood choice is beautiful.
    The routing work is excellent - I need a router table!
    Looking forward to seeing the finish go on.

    Cheers
    Ricky

    S'funny, I don't like and have never owned a strat or strat derivative, no real reason just the look I guess. Maybe I didn't like Hank and Eric's sounds or styles.
    You Sir, have turned me around with this build and maybe inspired me to go for one!
    Looking forward to seeing this one completed

    I didnít like Strats for ages, probably because all the ones I saw to start with when I got into guitars in the mid-1970s were large headstock ones, which I still dislike. It wanít until the return of small headstock Strats to the shops that I started to like the look of them, far more balanced. But I could never own a large headstock Strat. Iíve played them and worked on them and they play as well and donít sound any different, but for me, the look, ugh!

    Thanks mate. The router table definitely makes things easier. I'm really happy with the wood selection, I think once the clear coat goes on it will looks fantastic. There are a few little blemishes that most people would never see but I know are there but it's all a learning process.
