    Needs a little minor tweaking. The piece you are looking at is a particle board concept proto with contact paper on it just to see how things fit and balance visually. It's a nice tool to work with. The pickguard is not laying flat because the body piece is not thick enough for the switch. Neck is just for visual effect. The pocket is not deep enough to sit at the right height. The pickguard is a standard Strat configuration.

    I am hoping there is enough familiarity with the Strat to have players feel comfortable with it while keeping true to my design concept and its inherent ergonomic advantages.

    What does your pickguard do that others don't? :)
