    Hi everyone, happy to have found this website!

    A bit about me: got my first Stratocaster as a gift when I was 17. A black MIM which I still have and will never get rid of.

    A few years later I came into an old bullet squire which my buddy gave me in exchange for helping him move. The thing was pretty rough when I got it (think someone trying to carve a spider web design free-hand with a pocket knife kinda rough). The neck was still good, and I ended up refinishing the body ala Bondo and wood filler. Also had to rewire the thing as the pots had corroded. Currently it's my avatar if you're curious as to what it looks like now.

    That being said I've always been a tinkerer, and got into making guitar bodies a few years ago (mainly telecasters and also a few one-off designs, not to mention a few p-bass builds) and now wanting to try my hand at Stratocaster type guitars.

    I am looking forward to learning more about these types of guitars, and this site seems like the place to be!

    Welcome!

    What part of WV? I was born in Huntington, but didn't stick around long enough to become a full-on hillbilly.

    Howdy and would love to see some of your one off designs, I like all these custom made guitars they are really nice, but sometimes it is like making a better mouse trap deal to me .But anyways there is some guys on here who really know their stuff. I always freak out by how they can look at a picture and tell you everything about that guitar .And there are really some nice people on here also. But they will tell you exactly how they feel about things or guitars but I like people that are honest, So strap in and hold on, lol. Again welcome
