My first build

Postby Music Wolf » Sun Jun 06, 2021 8:47 pm

Well, assembly really. I built a Partscaster, with the aid of my teenage son. I already had the pickups and tuners left over after upgrading my US Standard Strat several years ago so I bought the rest of the bits from Northwest Guitars.

A little bit more setup work trequired but already playing nicely (and sounding very 'Stratty').

You've done those decals very well, I can't see any outline at all.
