    A buddy brought over a Strat body and asked if I could make a neck for it. Looked like a good opportunity to use a blank that I had just cut from a billet of roasted maple and purpleheart. The paint had been laid on pretty thick and had run in a few places so I asked him if he wanted me to try...

    We started talking to the folks at LSL instruments about putting together an artist inspired relic of one of our favorite relic super strats and it is finally ready! Who knows where we got the inspiration from?? :yesway:

    How do we do a Road Worn/Relic like this? Im guessing its probably painted over without sanding the old finish so the new Paint start to peel off, but how do we force it to peel off like that? Scotch tape? Doesnt seems like its been scrapped but... And all those cracked lines? If anyone...

    Meh. Could potentially be cool as a novelty in the corner of the living room, but I wouldn't pay that much for it. At least they put a fair amount of effort into it.

    I've got an Asus A7V8X-MX board that I'm building an old school Linux box around. I'm going to max the memory (2GB), I've got three 500GB drives for it, and I've got 3 or 4 NICs as well. I'll probably either use it for a Plex server, a VPN server, or a firewall. Haven't decided yet. It's...

    Hi guys, Here's my recently acquired strat, from the special run Fender recently did featuring BKPs. It came with a '59 Slab Board set as standard, but I have an overwound bridge unit in there - at around 13.5kΩ it's hot enough for some serious rocking, but still retains a traditional strat...
