    Solid or two piece strat rear mount zebrawood body. Not hollow. Solid.
    2 hum, Brass trem ala charvel,schecter. Ebony fretboard NO inlays birdseye maple neck 1 3/4 nut. Oh yeah must be a strathead no ugly incarnations.

    I currently have a 79 schecter with these specs and want to retire it but do not want to do so until I have the new one.

    So if someone is up for it shoot me a pm with a price and build time.

    Thanks

    Or if someone has a similar guitar they want to sell pm me. By similar I mean everything I described. No painted guitars.

    Sounds like great specs for what I play.

    But, you might have a hard time finding builders who openly will offer to copy a Fender headstock. Good luck though, and post pictures when you get it made.

    Why don't you just get the body and neck from Warmoth, or USA Custom and build it yourself? You can find wire schematics on Seymour Duncan's site. It's not hard to do and fun too.
    Parts, depending on hardware/pickups cost will run you around $800. You can have it set-up/adjusted by your local tech and your good.

    www.ricecustomguitars.com Call or email Rich, I'm sure he would be happy to take on your project. He will do it just to your spec and will do a great job. Great people to deal with too.

    But like has already been said - none of those makers will copy the headstock. You're stuck with Warmoth and USACG -which ain't bad at all. You could probably find someone to build one for you if you didn't want to do it. I have a Warmoth-finished Strat body - gorgeous and it has held up very well, and the finish is nice and thin.

    However I think you're going to be around a grand...it's sort of the magic number unless you do your own finish work.

    Thanks Loni. I have built guitars in the past and am familiar with wiring. I have built my own amps to :) The problem with warmoth and the other folks are they won't do a solid body zebrawood. I have even cut bodies myself in the past as I was very tight with Tom of route 101 guitars.

    Price isn't a biggie I would pay as much as 2500 for the right specs.

    Anyway, thanks for the input guys.
