    I'm sure there's a way to wire all 3 pickups for tone control... Haven't heard of many that do though? Usually the regular neck and middle, or neck and bridge, but not all three?

    Congrats Free!!! Can't wait to hear what you think!!! Shouldn't be too long now.

    Love to see it too. I have Nick building me one as well (not a strat guy, but these are so nice I think I might be able to somewhat get on board)
