Man, I’ve gone through 3 necks on this guitar now, but it just feels perfect now. First was an allparts, second was a Warmoth solid rosewood, and now this- a 50s American Original which I bought from @Theycallmetex
(Great seller- highly reccomend!)

I love the tint- I originally thought it was going to be really pale but it seems they’ve upgraded (imo) the finish lately.

What do you think?
I suppose it’s closer to a ‘58 than it’s original goal of 59/60.

That looks awesome!! Funny because we did a similar build starting out with a white blonde body. I have mine currently apart waiting a on a Allparts fat maple neck. It’s also the 3rd neck and hopefully the last!!

Good job, definitely looks like a late 50’s strat
