    Well, minus some pickguard screws. Plays great and is very quacky. Don’t even remember what the pickups came out of. In fact, it took so long to finish, I don’t remember where any of it came from. Just pieces laying around. Full size SE body, Starcaster neck, MIM bridge, cream button vintage tuners, full size pots and ceramic pups. I dyed the fingerboard and did some light to medium relic all over.

  2. I'm assuming (not always a good thing to do) that you did the relic? Not over done … nice!
    Cheers, Barrie.

    Awesome job :) I love the Starcaster necks. They could do double duty as a baseball bat.
     
  4. Kinda like John Fogerty's baseball bat guitar.

    What did you use to dye the fingerboard? And was it splotchy or faded before you did that, or was it just too light a color for your taste?

    Weird that when you quoted me above, the word "adjustment" is spelled differently than in my post! What's up with that?

    Used India ink and it was a kind of a light rosewood to start but I just like the look of ebony.
