All done.

The body is an old Ebay pre-painted basswood one that I gigged with for years, scuffed and repainted with RR Coral and 2k clear. The neck and pickguard are cheap K-Mise from Amazon, about $40 for both. The pickup is a greasy, dirty, no-name ceramic that was in my parts box. No idea where it came from. Tuners, pot, and "tone" knob were in the parts box, too. Trem is a full size block MIM Fender.

I've been playing it this morning through my old Boss DS-1, and it sounds great. Ugly, nasty, and loud. Laughing

Quick and dirty project, just for grins.



All the paint was done in the space of about three hours. It's nasty up close, but I'm going full goose bozo on this one. Laughing

That's all you need- one pickup and VOLUME. Very Happy

Looks great too.

Correction: One pickup and TONE. Laughing

Speaking of pickups, there is A DiMarzio Air Classic on the way for this one. It will be here tomorrow. Cool

Here she is. Nowhere near "accurate" but a ton of fun.



All I had handy was a 250K pot, so as I tend to do, I just went for it.
This body is basswood, and a lot of basswood guitars I've had needed a haircut--a little off the top.
It worked out great. Digging the Air Classic. Cool

Nice, inspired me to build one too. Just bought cheapy Strat body off CL. Basswood would be my first choice building a shred Strat-like guitar unfortunately mine's plywood. Sad

Assembled and resting. This lefty stuff is hard to wrap my brain around, everything bass-ackwards. Laughing

How did that go with the 2k over nitro? Did you mist it on at first? I'm curious because I have a Jem Jr that I just sprayed with RR seafoam and would prefer to apply a 2k top coat since it would be more durable on the sharp edges than nitro would be. BTW, that coral strat looks great. RR coral is an awesome color that probably needs more attention.
