    Weather terrible here so I'd thought I'd line up my Partscasters to cheer me up. The Oly white is not a PC she's an '86 MIJ but what the ****!

    Very nice. I'm debating starting my next which will be a Telecaster with a neck humbucker, rosewood neck and finished in an aged Sherwood Green.

    The neck is a Warmoth birdseye maple neck. The guy I bought it from says the body is from a 70's Fender Tele. I think he's right because the neckplate dates to the early 70's. I haven't opened it up to check it out. Too bad the old 70's body got messed and other than the body and neckplate there's no other original parts. I took it off his hands for $250 so I happy.

    I dig the blue one and the gold one... what finish is that on the gold? Looks like you can see the grain through the metallic-- very cool!

    I don't know if we have great minds, but we're sure thinking alike...

    My latest partscaster is built around a MJTele shoreline-gold S-style body (with an old Guitar Clinic neck and Don Mare pickups), and I've got an LPB build too, although that one has white plastic, gold hardware, and Alembic pickups.

    Nice collection!

    Definately the best sounding strat I've ever owned - all the rest are great - ive lost a couple over the last two years - just bad bit of tree I guess - I tried to rescue them with pickups etc but no joy I can tell a good one (for me anyway) in seconds now.

    I had a gold strat with a black pickguard and ebony fretboard very simuliar to yours for years giging my Arse off with it then sold it to get a Gibson R7.
    What a mistake i made,regret it even to this day. :cry:
    My next strat will be a gold one again with a maple board and black pickguard..
