    After getting my last Charvel So Cal mutt, switching out the neck for the one from my San Dimas, I now had a brand new neck going spare, and an old San Dimas body (which i've sanded back to bare wood and oiled, but kinda given up on...) The obvious solution was to put the new neck on my San...

    This is really an 'NBD' I guess (new body day) but I'll get to that in a moment... Everyone's favourite partscaster enthusiast Cameron hooked a brother up with this beast. This started out as a whimsical and opportunist purchase but has turned out to be my main player. I started mocking it up...

He had this mutt he put together...

    So I've had most of the parts for this kicking around for a while, and just needed the neck. I found a really, really resonant mexi strat at a pawnshop for cheap a few years back, but the neck was thrashed, and my attempts at leveling it were futile. Every time I'd level the board, it would just...

    So as many of you know I just got back to school in Laramie, I decided to do a quick pawnshop check at all the places in town just to see if there was anything interested or worthwhile to pick up. And of course there was pretty much nothing. I get to the smallest and dinkiest of all the pawn...

    This thing is impossible to photograph. It looks a bit more orange than it really is - the color is more like an old penny. Metallic Brazen Orange (Mopar paint) with a black burst, and the fade-in from the black to the orange just doesn't want to come out in pics. It's also overcast today, which...
