This is a Strat I put together around a bunch of early 60’s parts I had kicking around. The body is a lightweight alder one from Allparts, finished in a faded Sonic Blue nitro lacquer with lots of cool checking and forearm wear. The neck is a beautiful flame-maple sample from Allparts. We dye the fingerboards to make them appear aged and install genuine clay dots. All parts are original pre-CBS and it plays as well as my buddies real ’63 Strat.
