Am I seeing a Les Paul body with a Fender Strat arm cutaway? Very nice work! I'm working on my first guitar body for a 'Tele. It's a wonderful change from what I have been doing and a lot more fun. :thumbsup:

Thanks! I'm going to check it out right now! I did a rough sketch of the body shape that I'd like to build. For my first one, it's going to be very similar to a "super strat". I don't want just the standard strat body. I also want to do all the knobs very similar to yours, where they are routed from behind.

Ron is great. Very helpful. I asked him some questions in an email and he sent me PDFs on a few of his booklets. Some great information there! I also purchased a Strat template that just arrived. I tested the neck fit with my son's guitar neck and it was perfect! Great people to do business with.
