I didn't like how much gloss was put on but other than that, for a $200.00 build, it turned out fantastic and sounded just great.

What’s the story with the H-H body?
Wood, mfg, colour name?
Completely low end (cheap). Fender Squire Indonesian, body "looks like" mahogany but no idea if that's what it actually is. I'll do some digging but chances are I won't find anything. Could be completely refinished for all I know. I was just interested in building a 2 humbucker Strat for a change.

Not even sure if the body is original to the neck :) @hedzup might know?

Making some progress with the Squier, just waiting for tuners. Burstbucker in the neck and a Lollar High Wind Imperial in the bridge. If it sounds good and plays well then I'll likely go with chrome pickup rings and knobs. This is just cobbled together with stuff i had "laying around".



Actually a nice piece of rosewood on the neck.

Very classy looking!

Chrome rings and knobs? Won't that look too 'blingy'?
Ever consider black plastic? ...keep it sedate /less 'pretentious'

(Am I still your friend after being so 'critical'?)

Cheers

Hmmm, I guess I'll forgive you this once :)

Actually black was my first thought, LOL. I'm not ruling anything out yet, but I'm not going to worry about it until I see if I can make it feel good. The guitar is really light and the wood body just feels great, very tactile.
