    Looks like you're having a blast! Keep at it.

    Now get a black SSS pickguard and throw Seymour Duncan SSL-5 / Fender Custom '69 / Fender Fat 50's in

    SUGGESTION AND SOLUTION:

    DO NOT BEVEL THE FRETS BEFORE YOU HAVE STRINGS ON!!!!


    Dont overbevel frets anyway!!!

    I wish you good luck with the 2nd refret!!!
    You're 100% spot on with that one!

    I'm starting to think this is the route I'm going to go. I didn't want to go overly-Gilmour on it because I fully intend on piecing together a '57 reissue Strat with EMG's, but fuck it. Gilmour is the shit and I don't care how many guitars I have that were inspired by him, there will never be enough. I'd like to make a copy of the 0001 Strat as well.

    Took a little break from it for traveling/wedding planning reasons but am hoping to get back on it soon. Playing Gilmour's sig at the auction really made me want to finish this up and start playing the shit out of it.
    Perfection is the enemy of progress.
