    001.JPG I came across a picture of a 63 strat i really liked but couldn't afford so i decided... Since i can't afford the real thing might as well take a shot at doing a replica of the same 63.

    The 1st picture is the Real 63 that the replica is based off of. The rest are the replica strat, The replica has mid to early 60s knobs /tip/covers /The guard & the bridge are both Lashing Replica pieces , The body has the correct 7/16 contuors it also had the dowel pins added...The Neck a musikraft Brazilian slab board / maple neck. inside are a set of signed Hand wound Abby's taken out of my 66 CS Strat. Im pretty happy with it ,

    Thanks.

    Wow!
    Quite a job you did!
    Really nice!

    I would have stopped at the finish checking for my own taste but it's a convincing scrape off.

    Thanks..... I was thinking the same thing after all was said and done. It's just too hard to really make it believable. Next time i do one it will be checked and nothing more.

    For the record I have seen "real ones" that were beat up like yours.
    So, no sweat for "Believability".

    Seriously, the paint and finish "before the scraping" is so damn good looking
    with the checking and all, I would go back to that for keeps.
    But that's just me.
    You've got great talent.
