    Man, that's fun to look at! :)

    With the wood being roasted, what type finish is on the body? Also, what pickups does it have?

    Congrats!

    Looks great. Love the grain on the body and the lighter skunk stripe on the neck.

    Also curious about finish and pickups.

    Stopped by Sweetwater... Love that. I'll make their one day. Only an 8 hr drive for me.

    Very nice axe. Well done.

    Ooh - yes, that is very nice and also different. I notice it has a headstock truss rod adjuster which I haven’t see too often on a CS. Congrats!!

    Everything about this looks fantastic! The roasted woods, the (flamed?) maple truss rod plug and skunk stripe, it all works perfectly. Does this end up being fairly light weight given all the roasting of woods?

    Very nice. I have those Sweet 64 pickups in one of my Partscasters and I think they're as good as it gets from Fender.

    Congratulations!

    Cool...you rarely see an Ash body with the those colors and Rosewood fretboard so it's a unique Strat.Congratulations.
