    Hello,

    This is my lastest build, in the "L serie" spirit. Nothing very original but I like so much blue guitars I had to have one like that !

    Musikraft neck (57 v profile, quarter sawn by luck, rosewood slab, overspray look)
    MJT body (alder, 3 pounds 10oz) slightly relicked and finish checked
    Callaham hardware and some solid black saddles for some reason
    Klein 62 pickups (for long ?)

    I like it and it plays nice. I'm a happy owner !

    This one is, on purpose, around 3,45 kg (just under 7 lb 10 oz) which is above the weight I aim for usually (3,250kg, 7lb 3 oz). Can't say I feel or hear a difference !

    LPB is such a great colo(u)r, even with maple fretboard...

    Big fan of the maple back rosewood fret board neck. Have one on my artic white HSS Strat with Suhr pickups.

    Very nice Strat!

    Ok the Klein pickups were not great to my taste (too "muffled" maybe because this guitar sounds a tad dark)

    I will swap them with a Dover set from D Allen.

    Sir, you have an excellent taste! I love that look! Congrats! Rosewood slab with V profile, that just sounds awesome!

    Precisely! I've actually had the desire to order the same spec from Musikraft for a long time, I just never find the time to finish one project before starting another.

    Very nice! Just slightly lighter than the Sapphire Blue on my Deluxe
