I want to build a purple strat like on the cover of Deep Purple's Greatest Hits, and was having trouble finding one that color. Was considering finishing my own body then going from there.

Long story short, I just started using the Wallapop app, and found a guy selling a Hondo II strat for $80. Neck pocket fits Fender, and I have a CGS era headstock neck around (maple board, probably get a RW later).

Just have to drive a few hours round trip, and with gas as cheap as it is, car getting 30+ MPG highway it should be more than 4 gallons there and back.

At this price I can throw more money at the hardware and electronics.

I'm tickled pink (or maybe purple?)!!
