    I haven't had much time lately to work the projects I've started, but I did manage to finish this one. I really like Candy Apple Red, but is seems every time I get one seems I end up selling it. Thought I would try again :).

    It's a Squier Standard body/neck (different guitars) and some alnico 5 P90s. Just a standard wiring with a 3-way switch. Just being a basement player, I decided to the cheap route with the pickups and bought a pair from Guitar Parts Zone for $37. They pickups sound good to me. They are not as bright as the single coils and break up a little quicker. This is my first set of P90s so still getting the feel for the sound.

    The maple on the neck is a little light for my taste, so it may get the shoe polish treatment.

    that's really cool - I like how you worked in the black headstock neck w/ the CAR body by going w/ black pg/plastics -- looks great!
