    ST-1 By nitroburner1000

    Well i have just received my kit and on inspection i am very impressed, a straight neck that fits snugly into the body, great finish to the body, and nice hardware.

    The only difference is that i have 2 push pulls on the tone pots to switch from series to parrallel on separate pickups.
    The pickups are the HOT RODDED HUMBUCKER SET the JB and Jazz Models, SH-4/SH-2 SET.

    Mmmm Tasty SD goodness, what are the plans for body and neck finish? Will it be a traditional Strat headstock or are you going customised?

    AH! I had not seen this (Captain Obvious moment) Cheers Wokka I'll take a look.
    You're right about the SD's in the white pick guard. Makes me want to build a strat...maybe set up for slide playing....hmmm...

    Yea mate, just like wokkaboy said, some of the decription is in my welcome but i will post it here....

    "I will customise the guitar......Chose the grover tuners but no pickups. I have got a twin matching set of Seymour Duncan Jazz humbuckers to fit into a white pearloid pickguard.
    I will paint the body with a deep pearl electric blue, with black hardware. Think it will look ok as a solid colour as there is not much grain in the basswood body. I will light stain and clearcoat the neck, the headstock will be reshaped and painted blue to match the body.
    thanks...

    Hope so, if i get a bit adventurous and everything is going ok i want to pinstripe the blue body in white, then clear it to seal it. Hoping to apply 20 or so coats of clear...we"ll see how much patience i have...lol..
