This was my first strat-style guitar, and my first with a tremolo. I love the way it turned out. I haven’t shown the front of the headstock up close because… long story short, it was a customer order featuring the customer’s nickname and signature on the headstock, and he ghosted me without buying it. Awkward. It has since sold.

Top: Rimu and Tawa
Neck: Rimu and Tawa
Fretboard: Rosewood, 24.75″ scale, 24 stainless steel frets

I used this build to create a series on all the tools needed to build and electric guitar. You can see the final video in that series, including a demo, here.
