    I was wondering too. I love the CBS headstock look but don't see them too often on partsocsters. Been thinking about a hardtail CAR strat with a rosewood bosrd and a CBS headstock...

    These all look fantastic.

    How much is required to be done to put them together if you order one of their ebay packages? How long does it normally take and anyone from Canada give this a shot?

    If it's your first one it's going to take some time. Or at least it should if you want to do it right. I would say I had 25 - 30 hours into mine - and it was my first. You will also need some tools. My list of essentials would be:

    -Good soldering station
    -Good straight edge
    -Fret leveling beam
    -Fret crowning file
    -Set of nut files
    -Helping Hand thing
    -3M polishing paper (or something similar)

    It's a lot of fun if you are into this sort of thing - i.e. you enjoy tedious work.

    I wouldn't recommend this being your first rodeo with cutting a nut and setting up a bolt on guitar. Maybe buy a used squier and practice? I screwed up a couple fret levels before getting good at it, ruining the frets on one guitar by going too low, but I used that one to learn how to refret, so it worked out.

    I can put one together in about 3 hours, but I have built 5 or 6 of them, and done many fret levels, truss rod settings, cut nuts, etc. Setting up a guitar from scratch takes a good bit of skill, but is definitely something you can learn without too much work.

    If you have a fender, take it completely apart, undoing all screws, etc, and put it back together! Can you make it play great?

    Here's some more pics of mine:

    My Rat Rod.

    Bought the one-off body already painted and aged with pinstripes from MJT. Then had my guy route it for humbuckers and slap the rest together using a WD neck (22 jumbo frets and 12" radius) and he also finished/aged the neck to match. Pickups are Duncan Antiquity Humbucker & Antiquity Firebird Mini.

    Let me guess...you spent $3000.00-$4000.00 on a real deal (fake relic) from the real deal company.? If it is what you need to do to justify your purchase...bash away. It's a good thing you are not living next door to me where you might come over and play one of my many "fakes" and have to suffer "buyers remorse"
    Total d*** troll.

    Well, considering G&L's I'd add Fender to the fake list too then...No?
