    At least the grain is running the other way. I like the guitar, but agree that they should have made the pieces match better.

    On the other hand, if they used a nicely matched one for the ad, then customers getting less well matched ones would cry foul.

    Good to know that was a Custom Shop option. I kind of like the alternating woods theme.
    These are some bodies I hand cut a couple years back.

    I'm surprised so many of you like this look, to me the issue isn't the mismatched body but how pale and bland it is. The raw body together with the covered pickup poles, just looks naked.

    Reminds me of 1974. All those stripped down "natural" Strats. I think Bonnie still plays hers. LOL

    They could have matched the body pieces. At least on the photo model.

    You'd think that they could at least have given us a slab body.

    That laminated pickguard is too flashy. Needs to be 1-layer white.

    Horrible mismatch on the body pieces. Looks like a cheap cutting board
