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...

Huge thanks to Jackson Guitars - Official! for putting together this incredible Custom Shop Heavy Relic Strat for me!
This is a bit of a unique piece because it's designed to be a mix of what I go for in a guitar but in a Strat format.

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.
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...
