Re: Project-Build: DNA-type Swirled Strat
Update: neck is on. LoPro is en route, pickups in process....I'm thinking of putting a clear strat pickguard on her- ala Jem swirl. Floyd nut in cosmo black on order - and I'm going to go with the metal serrated knobs with the allen wrench locks-(like a tele)for me in a live situation they work better than hats.
Orange drop .047's are delivered, 5 way switchcraft and CTS 500K pots are here. Gonna spare no expense and use silver solder for all points on this one.
I'm a huge fan of tap-testing neck and body woods-AFTER they are put together. Each resonates at a certain frequency and they may sound good alone but sometimes they will cancel themselves out when joined together - I believe that getting the two parts to resonate in harmony and you're half way there to a great guitar.
