Thanks Brady.

I wouldve liked to have used a nitro body but couldnt afford one,so poly it had to be....but to be honest soundwise,cos of the amount of finish i removed,i dont think it would have made much difference if it had been a nitro,lol!

Amazing work!
Did you take the fender SRV signature Stratocaster as a base? because of the signature on the headstock!
How does it play/sound?

Thanks SeicheNZ.

Well,no i didnt take the fender srv as a base.....i got all the parts one by one(took me months to get them all),the neck is off an srv tho......as this was like a tribute guitar i decided to leave Stevie's signature on it.
It sounds great,it has a lovely tone to it.
Im thinking about re-doing the body,maybe in nitro,i think i could get the wear looking more realistic with that.

Thanks for the comment garbeaj,
Well,as you know Stevie's no.1 got worn down thru the years....im basing mine on about 1989....i know when Stevie played the Astrodome, Mickey signed both no.1 and Lenny,but by 1989 it had worn off.
I have done the signature on my Lenny rep tho.
