    Sweet! I have a Jenny body on the way, and have most of the parts together. Very similair with black heavy relic and rosewood board.


    Was this a custom build from MJT?

    No, just the body was MJT. I had a Musikraft neck I sent Matt as well for finishing. My local Ace guitar tech Ron Pace ( Pace Guitar Repair) did a spectacular job of assembling everything.

    I couldn't be happier!

    I put together an MJT tele and strat a few months ago and they both turned out great---wound up selling because I finally accepted that I'm a LP guy and nothing else gets played

    Yes, plastics are from Fatboy Guitars and the pickups are Angeltones. These pickups are Kens' latest and greatest offering....the SRV/59 set.

    Other parts are callaham block, fender '62 bridge and aged Gotoh tuners (Thanks K-Line).

    Any idea if they do include F logos with their necks? or Decals?

    MJT DO NOT include logos or decals on the necks.

    Very nice! I was going to buy a MJT kit for this exact same guitar. Instead there was a white one for sale here that I just grabbed at a nice price so I figured I would go for it. Many I love the black with mint guard, but I guess white with mint guard will have to do.

    Enjoy!

    Nice man! I was never a fan of the color black for guitars, but it looks great with the relic-ing!

    I have a set of Ken's SRV/59 p'ups in my '61 Strat build. My favorite p'ups thus far. Dig on the bell like chime and huge bottom end response.

    Keep on with the get-down!

    Check the builders section here on TGP.

    Nice looking guitar!

    So those Angeltone are nice? I may need to check in to a set of them.

    My favorite Angeltones to date! Ken is really cranking out some fantastic pickups as of late.

    The musikraft neck is their SRV/Aysemtrical profile and is super comfortable. This is by far the best sounding/feeling strat I own.
