Autumn 2018 and a new project starting. I was given a body shaped like Stratocaster but I changed it a little bit to look like Jazzmaster. Going to use a hard tail on this one. Hardware decided, electronics still unsure. I have been thinking at least one gold foil or a pair of them.
Top will be walnut. I got a piece of it from my neighbor at allotment garden. Maple neck.
Fret board is going to be ziricote.
Starts to look like nice. Gold foil pickups have arrived.
Several holes made to the pickguard.
Finalizing the pickguard.
Cavities under the pickguard. Next step the binding channels to body and headstock.
Bending the bindings.
Bindings also to the headstock.
Last fret to go.
The frets are on and roughly shaped.
