Hello, I'm new on this forum. Just thought I'd show my project here...

Unfortunatelly I need to write 10 posts to show links or images...:sad:.

So here's a little BS for everyone.

I found this 80€ project guitar on the internet. As you can see there are some pieces missing...











I'd like to get a white H/H-pickguard instead of the HSH configuration. Does anyone know will a RG pickguard fit straight on this guitar?

A nice guitar. I'd go for HSH, but HH would be nice too (or even HS - 565 style). Do you know what kind of trem you're gonna put on it? I think the trems used on this guitar is the same ones they used on some of the talman guitars (the ones with block saddles, not the ones with threaded tele style saddles). I really remember those tremolos being a pain in the a**. I guess that a wilkinson should drop in perfectly.

Speaking of talman's, I miss mine, even though it had the crappy tremolo.
Good luck on your build.

Yeah, Wilky should fit, or the standard "strat" trem. I'd shave off a bit of the heel to make it a little bit more pre-AANJ, but it looks great as it is.

It's been a while but it looks like I finally have all the parts together. I ordered a white pickguard from jeannie pickguards. I will put two gold cover humbuckers on with single volume and tone controls plus a tele-style 3-way switch.
The pickups are from some chinese les paul custom copy but. I will give them a try and maybe look for higher quality later.

I put it together yesterday. I still need a white strat-style knob for the pu-switch and a gold oval jack plate.
