I have been gassing for a Lake Placid Blue body in near perfect condition for my next build. I found some but they either sold before I got there, were too rough, or just plain too expensive. I'm not a real blue fan, but LPD is a great color. Well, while searching the Stratosphere Site last week, I found a FULLY assembled, brand new Player body in Tidepool (very close to LPD) so I bought it. Then I saw that they has a fully loaded Player neck with Pau Ferro board and I bought it too (good prices). Now I have two assembly challenges.....mounting the neck and installing new strings (Oh, yes, and adjusting the two point tremolo system). I just don't know if I can handle that much complication! I'm used to having to put every little piece into a bare body on any build. Wish me luck...let's see the pointy end of the neck fits in the neck pocket and the strings are held in place with small roofing nails? Boy, what a challenge....may take me months! This written very light heartedly of course, but I Really did buy the parts mentioned and hope to have it operational tomorrow night. Pics of the "components"
