    Sorry, couldn't resist! Of course, go ahead. Your project, your ingenuity, your success story.

    Remember 'One Flew OVer The Cuckoo's Nest" when R P McMurphy (Jack Nicholson) takes the inmates out for the day and they are in the bus looking out at the 'sane world'.... I think all those on the bus are Strat players......just a thought..:rolleyes::rolleyes:

    No, you will have given birth to an abomination that might well corrupt you.

    yup, quite mad: and sorry but the nay sayers are right. 25.5" neck wont be in any playable scale if you extend it even a half inch at the neck pocket. maybe if you set the action really high and play it with a slide forgetting the fretts. the scale extends from the nut end, the first fret will be longer than your neck. sorry mate.....laters.......chuck

    Well I may as well put this one to bed.....You were right... I was mad....it was an abomination....But I just had to try! Anyway I quickly went back to the real world and started another Stat project which is almost finished. I have fitted it with Tonerider Classic Blues in the neck & mid and a Tonerider Rocksong humbucker in the bridge, can't wait to play it.
    As a parting shot and reference back to 'the cuckoos nest' most of you knew it was a mad idea, but....you encouraged and looked on! Hmmmm! Stay on the bus Strat players..madness is WONDERFUL!:twisted::twisted:
