I've been buying and trading gear for 29+ plus years. I can say that I believe I've played and tried just about every type of guitar that I want with the exception of a Ronin and Pre CBS Strat. I typically wind up modding or changing stock guitars in some form or fashion. Never have had a strat that I'm completely happy with for one reason or another. I believe I'm just going to build a warmoth partscaster to my specs and be done. I currently have a couple of SG's that I play mainly but I always need a strat. I haven't built a parts caster in a long time. I've always used warmoth stuff in the past and have been happy. Post pics of your partscasters no matter the style. Give me some motivation.
