What are the woods? Looks good so far. ;)
Specs? Have you decided on the electronics yet?

Keep us posted on the build please.

I like how the grain follows the headstock shape.
I'll be watching this one.

The wood is mahogany for the body and pau ferro neck. It's going to be a very heavy strat.
Unsure for the electronics. I have some strat pickups already but I think I may do hss pick ups and I will need a humbucker. It's going to be a slow build likely as my time with the equipment and the help is limited.

I just noticed, are you doing a Jimi tribute (reverse headstock)?

I assembled one for a friend. He loves it.
(he chose the colour)

I haven't decided. I think Im going to do a reverse headstock. I was thinking about changing the headstock a bit, but I don't want to get rid of the awesome look of the grain that is there.

Thanks man. We will see what happens. The fretwire and truss rod should be here by end of the week so that should be an interesting day.

I am a bit ahead of myself but I'm thinking dark stain on the body with white pearloid pick guard and gold hardware. Opinions ?

Those are good contrasting colours. Gold against a dark background always looks great.
