This is very nice indeed!
A body, a neck, some parts, a pickup, and some mojo.
Greater than the sum of its parts.
This is my partscaster I built a few years back. Was a beauty of a guitar but it just never played as smooth as my other Strat so I took it apart and sold the pieces. Shame I didn't take better pictures.
Custom nitro'd Tonebomb 1 piece ash body
Fender maple modern C neck
All gold hardware
MojoTone custom wound pickups
I'm going to do this paint job again one day..

These are just a few of my guitars and parts casters.
2 Strat partscasters, and a Tele.
I did a neck swap on the purple Strat the other day.
Well, the ONLY thing 'Fender' with this girl, is the body shape..
I have a few around me right now. Couple more downstairs. Blue one is actually an all eBay wish guitar (I wanted to see just how cheap and bad the parts were), only thing decent is the fender “big block” bridge (in all of these actually) and stainless saddles. Red one is an all parts ash 2 piece body/squire rosewood neck/60’s reissue pups/gold fender “big block” bridge/gold klusons/custom cream paisley pickguard. Antique white one is an EKO ash body/MM maple neck/lotus 70’s pups (steel back plates)/fender “big block” bridge/stainless saddles. The squire tele is “bubba” modded with a hot rail bridge pup. The black one is an alder fender body/MM reosewood neck/hot rails/“big block” bridge. Headstocks have all been re-logo-ed, have to redo the antique white one as someone else did that one. They’re all standard wired, all are fully copper shielded, even the eBay/wish guitar somehow sounds decent with those “fake-sensor” pups.
1992 Tele, Truss Rod was all the way turned, so put Roasted Maple neck on, and added Mini SD for neck and area 58 for middle, with Push/pull on the tone to get Bridge/neck and all 3 pickups sounds.
Are you a KC cop ? Just askin' .
I am not a cop but have been employed by the KCPD for 17 1/2 years. I am a civilian supervisor in the Fleet Operations Unit. As part of the FOU my crew and I take care of the 5k mile services, tow truck operations and other things like detailing the new and reassigned vehicles etc.
Here's a 1998 Squire SE, with some work done. Frets leveled, crowned and rounded ends. Neck sanded to 1200, then polished on a wheel. Body was stripped to bare wood then laminated with carbon fiber. Pups are a US Tex Mex in the neck, original middle, and a JB-3in the bridge. Wiring is mostly original, with a new jack. Plays really well, sounds great.
You are far more brave than I.
I have no business behind any finish spray device. Trust me.
The left is a rattle can blend of ReRanch Gorilla Vanilla and Olympic White - nitro on alder* the right a grain popped Mary Kaye - poly on ash**.
*Fralins, MIM neck, and since the photo, Calliham on Klusons
**Van Zandts, Warmoth big assed neck, they didn't call them fat or boat back then (the decal however is legit, don't ask) Calliham on Klusons.
Haha! Not much. I bought the guitar for $10. The spray paint cost more than the guitar.
Then you came out ahead then! Still, I do admire you effort.
I've never been one to "collect" guitars, rather just a few that do what I want. My perceived quality (whatever that means) above all else. I really like made in the USA.
The wood bits for #5 are due to arrive on Wednesday. Still waiting on the pickups. : /
This is really very pretty mr. Nadnitram. You may not claim to be a craftsman, but you shake a mean can. Makes you and artist.
Love the bound Esquire !!
