    Back plate is not necessary. A lot of players, myself included, take them off. I put them and thier screws into a ziploc baggie and keep with the guitar if I ever want to put it back to 100% original to sell (never happened yet).

    Nice job on the refinish!!

    Looks pretty good. A dramatic improvement from the way you received it. How does the tone sound? I have seen loaded pick guard prices in a huge range in price. I'm curious how the Chinese ones are tone wise.

    Yeah, I was about to buy a higher end one, but I went with one that came out to be around $15 CAD. (Cheapest one I could find on ebay)

    The sound wasn't bad. But I did swap out the Chinese pickups with my Charvels. Sounds nice! Definitely doesn't sound like my Highway 1 Strat.

    I might end up selling this guitar, only because I really dont need 2

    But is there really such a thing as too many guitars?

    That is a beautiful guitar and you did a wonderful job on it. If it was mine Id keep it and rock out!
    Two reasons, you have built it and secondly it looks great,has Charvel pickups and a funky bridge. :)
