    Got my strat refinished by MJT and I love the color and light relic. It's at my luthier now getting assembled and set up. Can't wait to get it back!

    I REALLY like this one a lot! What color is that? Can you tell me about the knobs, pickup covers, and pickguard - what color they are and where you got them?

    It's a Fiesta Red, but its almost into Coral territory. The pickguard is a Lashing mint green celluloid guard. I bought unaged, but sat it out in the sun for a couple of afternoons to let it age a little. The knobs and covers were parchment aged by Mark Foley (fatboy), but I believe he has stopped plastics and solely focuses on building pickups now. The neck is a musikraft that was tinted with transtint and cleared over.

    A lot of what you're probably liking is that light red combined with the light mint. They work really well together. The lime green mint guards don't work as well IMO

    Thanks for all that! Yes, you’re right - that red and light mint look fantastic together. But not only that, the plastic looks perfect against the pickguard. Basically, it’s all the right colors for everything! :D

    I'm a stickler for that stuff. I can't stand when stuff is overaged or worse done with shoe polish and crud. I haven't heard any of Mark's pickups, but his aged products are defintiely missed. I haven't found anyone that makes anything as good yet.

    Absolutely gorgeous! Is the neck completely rosewood?

    It is, yeah. That's why I had the headstock painted, to sort of hide that fact and make it look like a more normal 60's-style Tele.

    Aside from being rosewood (and having stainless frets), the neck is otherwise authentic mid-60s spec: veneer fretboard, 7.25" radius, 1-5/8" nut width, MOP inlays top and side, narrow 12th fret inlay spacing, etc.

    Nice! How do you like the formvar 50s? Deciding between those and the Junior Watson’s for my build.

    I love the Formvar 50's they are glassy and the have that spank when you dig in. They also have amazing quack in 2 & 4. I haven't tried the Jr. Watson's, but I have Rockin' Robbins in another Strat and I really like those too.
