Thanks Donald, I will! It'll be awhile. I've still got a couple of weeks before it's time to wetsand and buff the bodies. When that's done, assuming there are no sand-throughs in the finish, I'll assemble and set up the LP style and deliver it to my friend. I'll get some pics of that before I turn it over to him.
As far as the strat goes, I'm still trying to decide whether to use the existing neck, which is ok, but the nut width at 1 & 9/16" is a little narrow for my taste. I'm contemplating whether or not to build one to my specs. Here is the hardware for that one. I still have to order pickups, guard and electronics.
