Superstrat build

Here is a superstrat i have been building up. Its in a relic style but is 100% finished with no dings, chips, worn corners etc. The body is smooth all over. I don't know why i did this to be honest i usually don't like relics. That's why this is more a new finish just with a old look. There's also no paint, The finish has been done with Material like the jem floral vai guitars.
Body: alder.
Scale: 25.5''
Neck: mij charvel 22 fret truss rod adjustment at heel with skunk stripe. compound radius. Rosewood, jumbo frets blah blah
PIckups: Dimarzio pafpro/hs4 with either one volume and a 3way switch or a lynch style arrangement of 1 volume with a push pull to switch pups
Bridge: top mount Gotoh Gibson wrc tremolo, Gotoh locking tremolo posts
Note: no parts are bolted on yet there just resting there for the photo, i am also well aware the finish looks like a vomit after sushi but its has got some serious charm

Here she is my ugly girl


You can see here in the next two pictures how wood is exposed but its also covered and leveled completely with the rest of the finish

Re: Superstrat build

This has peaked my interest because I want to do a similar setup (no relicing though ).

she ain't no relic more a brand new finish that looks old, there has to be a difference .

How do you want to do your superstrat? Humbucker/Single with a floyd and a 22 fret neck?

I haven't quite decided on pickups, but I'm on the fence between a hum/single/hum or 3 stacked single coils, 24 frets, and a floyd (kind of like the one Vai used for the Hendrix tour). Kind of like these:




Now back to the original topic.
