Yay! Happy New Old Guitar Day. Well after more hours than I would like to admit I finally "finished" rebuilding my first guitar. Thank you to those of you who gave some advice on my original thread and special thanks to pew222 for providing me with a free MIM Strat neck. I have named her "the Mistress" since she is kinda cheap and I only have her do the few things my main guitar Joanie won't. I don't treat her the best but she kinda likes it that way. Mods: MIM Strat Neck Locking GFS tuners GFS Roller trees Tusq XL Nut GFS Big Brass Block and Bridge LUXE 1956-58 .1 Phonebook cap Here are some photos: The finished product: Overall I am pretty satisfied though I am still tweaking it. The nut took quiet a while to get down to the right size but all in all I was happy to give this guitar a second chance on life. Also, I dont know that I will keep the cap I bought. It does seem to add some twang to it but by the time I get to the 12 fret its a little overboard. Serves me right for spending that kinda money on a cap. On a side note....any advice on how to get out a stripped screw?
