    Hello everyone :whistling:

    Got this never used MJT Relic Stratocaster body and I don`t know what year it`s meant to be from.
    I think 1958-59 or early 60`s Fender era? But I think I will build from my own personal preferences and taste. What you guys suggest to do?

    How about 1959! Do you have a neck to go with it?

    I believe this would made a fine '58-'70 replica.

    No. I live in Norway and there is no rosewood for sale atm... But alot for maple necks. So for now I will go for Maple and if I see rosewood for sale or CITES changes by time I may change.

    They started with 3 burst in -58 so you can slap a maple neck on it and create a -58 mid -59 model.

    yeah, do you think a 3ply mint green guard or an 50s white single ply guard is more correct?

    It was a transition era so any of them would work.

    58 with the slightly faded red ring. 59 would be okay too. So maple or rosewood would do it.
