    Awesome video demo Simon.
    What gear are you using, and what is that nice looking powder blue axe in the background?

    Thanks for the comments guys!

    @stan that is my recently refinished first guitar kit I ever made. If you go to my youtube channel (don't forget to subscribe!) you can see a short process of how I redid the guitar. Here's a demo of the blue PRS copy https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8gVWNQxSrSg

    I love this guitar, and Simon's playing too!
    Now, I'm a bassist so my guitar playing is pretty dopey. But I love the frankenstrat so I'm going have a go at making my own over the next 6 months or so. An early Xmas prezzy of a strat kit with 2 piece ash body and maple neck has set me on the way. I don't think it is a pit bull kit as it doesn't have the sticker or decal.
    Things to do first...
    1. Convert the h s h body into the correct pickup holes
    2. Pull the 22nd fret, fill the hole and reshape the base of the neck to a Tele shape to make sure that it doesn't fit correctly like the real one!
    3. Fit locking nut to neck.... this is the bit I'm worried about!
