    This is one of two I am selling. The first one to sell will probably be it, as I will most likely keep the other one.

    Stratocaster style partscaster, made to Rock..

    - Solid two piece, Black Walnut body

    - I’ve left it slightly rustic as I like the feel of the wood and the aged look of the headstock

    - 350mm radius fretboard, great for chording down low and allows big bends up top without fretting out. These are the necks I use on my stage guitars.

    - 22 frets, maple neck and board

    - Custom decals with satin clearcoat over them

    - All black hardware

    - Hardtail design, perfect for alternate tunings

    - Locking tuners (Wilkinson EZ Lok), roller string guide

    - HSS pickups B-16k, M-5.5k, N-5.5k

    - White pearl pickguard

    - Black engraved neckplate

    This guitar "plays like butter", according to my associates who've tried it out.

    The pickups are high output and it punches the front end of the amp pretty hard.

    If you're a blues-rock, classic rock, 80's rock, or metal player, yep, this is your baby.

    It can also do the straight blues, country stuff too, but I built it up to give me the meat I couldn't get from any other strat I played, even at three times the price...

    I sanded this down to 400 grit as I wanted to leave a little bit of wood grain feel.

    I initially put 4 or 5 coats of oil on it and I usually go over it with a light coat about every 6 months to keep it sealed. I am in the process of re-oiling it right now, as it’s been hanging in my office for a while.

    I had the headstock decals made and put them on with about 3 coats of satin clearcoat over

    The selling price barely covers the cost of the custom-made body and components, but I'm building another couple of guitars and need to clear one of these out to finish them.

    This cost way less than having one built like it, Fender Custom shop doesn't even list this type of arrangement

    I built this about two years ago and I just don't play it very often.

    It has just been hanging on the wall in my studio/office. There's been no smoke anywhere near this thing.

    I have it listed for local pickup, but I will ship it.

    I'll pack it well and ship it insured to the lower 48 states. I will charge actual shipping.

    The dimensions are 45x19x7 and the weight is 16lbs, and it will be insured for $500. Packed in a light gig bag, in a guitar specific heavy duty box. Shipping is approximately: East cost about $65, Central zone about $75, Rocky mountain zone about $85, and West cost zone about $95. It will be based on your delivery information.

    It's sold as is, but, in the last 20 years, I've never had negative feedback.

    The last guy who bought one of these from me, messaged me a few years later to tell me that he bought it as a backup, but now it’s his main stage guitar.

    feel free to message me with any questions

    They're imgur embeds that oddly show up when you click Reply to quote the top post, but not otherwise. Might work if @ctgblue posts the links without wrapping them in IMG. I think he's running foul of imgur's anti-embed defenses.

    It's a nice looking partscaster.

    I need to look at this, because they showed up when I initially posted this.

    My Mahogany one doesn't show either.
