For your perusing pleasures. Here's a strat body I made some time back, out of beetle kill "blue pine." Memory serves me well, it's about 4lbs. Routed out to strat dimensions, including all cavities. One caveat, needs bridge holes drilled, pickguard and neck holes as well. The neck pocket was repaired, and original screw holes plugged all the way through. Fender, USACG and Allparts necks will fit fine...might need a little fitment by sanding a bit. Body only has clear coats. It has a scratch or two that should sand out pretty quick. Any questions, let me know. Please see pics of neck pocket. It is stable and routed just fine. This body will make for a very unusual and visually interesting guitar. Price, 250 shipped conus.
