    Thanks Drake! I'm definitely pleased with the finished product!

    I hear what you're saying Jonesy. I'm so tempted but it just looks so damn nice and clean. Maybe a light relic to start and then go from there?

    Hey Capt. I was in Valencia for a few days on business. Just got home a few hours ago. :thumb:

    Agreed! It's definitely on the "to do" list!

    Very nice, I think mine was about $1200 US. Yeah I could have bought a used USA strat with that, but hey it's the only one of it's kind right?

    Btw Hyper you gotta post some audio clips sometime. I'm curious to how close those pickups sound to SRV's tone.:hmm:

    Hi there I was lookinga t your pics on facebook and I saw you were using some sort of template... I was wondering where did you get that? I found one on srvguitar.com but after countless emails i haven't heard back... do you have a copy of the template you could spare? or could you point me in another direction to get one?

    thanks

    Google "srv # 1 guitar template" and then hit the "image" button and you'll find them there...

    That looks great. Well done.

    How did you go about the relicing of the body??? Did you start with a Sunburst body or was it a blank (unpainted) body then then spray it???

    I'm about to do one and I'm not sure how to do it... I've got a sunburst body...
