Okay, the truth is that we are both very, very lame. But we like to play the guitar. We get a few cool points for that, don't we?
I have been working on two or three guitar building projects since midway thru college, but none of them have gotten very far. The solution? Buy some parts that don't require any sanding, painting, or basically any effort or skill on my part. Again, this makes me extremely lame.
The result, however, is truly awesome!! About two years ago in Oklahoma, I did manage to stain and clearcoat both of the Stratocaster necks that I have. A few weeks ago I finally broke down and bought a pre-finished Candy Tangerine orange body and a special trick wired pickup set on eBay. Yep, you heard it right, Tangerine orange, baby!
A little solder, cutting the nut cavity, and screwing together later, this fire breathing beast was born!! And it was a heck of a lot cheaper than buying one at the store. I have to admit, this Strat is way cooler than any of the other three I have previously owned. She's a keeper.
Amy and I had a little too much fun taking pictures, so here are some pics of us "playing" the guitar (I use the word playing loosely). just be glad this Blog doesn't come with sound. I remember as a teenager, Mom would come storming into my room and rip the amplifier cord out of the wall. Apparently I was playing too loud and too poorly. Unfortunately for our neighbors, so things just don't change....
