The body and neck are from The Olivewood Guitar Co. in Whitechurch/Stouffville . Together under $300. The body is 2 piece Alder with a satin nitro finish. The neck has a rosewood fretboard and skunk stripe with abalone dot inlays and a two way truss rod. Tuners and bridge are Wilkinson. Pickups are Fender Tex Mex. Pickguard and control plate are MusicLily. Switchcraft 3 way and jack. CTS pots with pullback wiring and knobs are from Next Gen in Ottawa.

Total weight is just over 9 lbs and it sustains forever. I will post a build gallery when I figure it out.

Interesting.
How did you get in touch with Olivewood? FB page is 8 years old, website is no more.
How's the quality?

**** had an ad on Kijiji for necks and bodies. They come up from time to time. I don't know if I can post his cell # on this forum or I would.

The quality is great. The neck is gorgeous. Real craftmanship. The body is two piece and solid. It is undrilled which has it's advantages.

If you do an Ontario search on Kijiji for 'Quality Guitar Neck' his ad in Mississauga should be there.

Thank you very much SWLABR. It was a lot of fun and a good challenge. The end result was definitely worth the trials.
