    So I've got this 1987 '57AVRi neck pretty cheap ($300) and decided to start my first build:

    - 1987 '57 AVRi neck ( which I believe has Fullerton curves, as they changed their CNC machines settings later this year)
    - 2008 EJ Strat body in Ocean Turquoise (Looking at dings on the body I was surprised how thin finish is)
    - Fender Pure Vintage '59 pickups with Luxe cap reissue
    - Raw Vintage springs
    - Fender Vintage Tremolo

    Planning to change pickguard to 1-ply later.

    Guitar camed out very responsive and naturally compressed. Really love it. I guess the neck was main factor for final outcome. Pickups are awesome as well.

    To be honest, I cannot understand how Fender stays in business. It is so easy now to buy the parts you want, usually of better quality and build to how you like it. Great job and good looking. I plan to build my own tele next. After my first strat build it will be a breeze.

    Nice. I like the color. :thumb:

    BTW, "Fullerton curves" refers to AVRI bodies, not necks.

    I've never heard it used to refer to necks.

    And any guitars made in Corona, cannot by definition, have "Fullerton curves".

    But who cares what I think anyway?

    HNGD!:)

    Axe looks good and the video makes the guitar come to life! Are you playing for a wedding or something? Thanks for sharing.

    Ocean Turquoise or Daphne Blue both are beautiful colors. It is definitely on my list after a Black Strat which I'm building next. Congrats and great playing....

    this. And I will never understand obsession with minutiae details trying to measure all curves, thicknesses, etc. If I have a guitar in hand, it doesnt matter for me if it has 54, 56 or 68 neck, curves or pickguard, it is musical instrument and it is meant to be played, not to become obsessed with some vintage correctness.
