    This "Strat Body" has been for sale on eBay for months and finally someone bought it, perhaps to put it out of its misery. I must admit, I had become an ardent watcher and thought about buying it so I could pull it out of the closet when a buddy asks me what my latest guitar project is or perhaps show it to my luthier buddy and ask what he would charge to route the neck pocket, pickup and trem cavities.

    Sadly, the seller had the last laugh and accepted someone's "Best Offer" just today.

    I'm sure it would be great starter wood for our firepit; other than that, the backing for a dart board in a guitar room?

    I wonder if it's a companion to the "SG" on CL.

    Oh well, everything burns. :D

    I bet they charged an extra relic fee for that knot hole in the neck pocket.

    no neck pocket, no P/U or controls/jack routing....all of which should've taken place before cutting to shape and body contouring. Garbage

    I sent a message to the seller at one point asking if the body was a 50's or 70's contour but he did not reply. lol
