Sold Rutters 50s Strat Body

This is a nice, light Marc Rutters Strat body copied from a late 50s vintage Strat.

One-piece alder. 3 lbs, 7 oz. Never used other than fitting a neck to the pocket.

I was going to use it with a project that I had to pass on. As is often the case with partscasters, the neck and body weren't a perfect fit. I had to very slightly sand the neck pocket of the body. It fit the neck I was going to use perfectly. However, I tried it with a couple of other necks I have lying around, and one was still a little too big for the pocket and one was a little too small. I've included pics of the gap with the too-small neck (from a US Fender vintage reissue 62 Jazzmaster).

The price reflects that you may need more skills than a screwdriver to make it work with your neck, or at least the understanding of and being at peace with the fact that vintage Fenders often have substantial gaps in the neck pocket and it makes no difference.

Was $240 new with shipping. Selling for SOLD shipped / PayPal'd in the lower 48.

It was a Musikraft neck that fit. But, another Musikraft neck with same specs was still a hair too big. They all vary a little bit.
