NGD: Relic content

I decided to put together a Strat over the past few months. I think I'm noticing a bit of a theme:

With a near identical configuration to my Esquire, this SC Relics Strat is wired with a Dimarzio Chopper in the bridge position and a push/pull volume (coil splitting) to provide a surprisingly decent variety of tones. The mirror pick guard is cool too! These will make a great pair to take to gigs.

Scott has really outdone himself. For those interested, it's finished in an aged green over two-tone sunburst with heavy checking. The build is based loosely off a '54 spec with appointments such as a 7.25'' maple neck and vintage tuners/bridge. Really enjoying the soft V neck profile! :)

After seeing the bit of like, masking tape or whatever sticking out of the pickguard, my thoughts, out loud, were "I really like that... why do I like that? What is wrong with me?"
That means it's good.
I think.
Either way, it's awesome.

Not sure if I'd like the radius, since NONE of my guitars even come CLOSE to that... but I think I'd like the neck profile, nonetheless.

And as always... I really, REALLY love that Esquire.
Congrats on both.

haha - the bit of tape is actually just there to cover up the edge of the pick guard where my palm usually rests. The 7.25'' radius is actually really nice. Definitely a change but not impossible to play solos etc. :)

Lovely!
And EVERYONE needs a Strat.

Your blue strat served as inspiration for deciding on a colour-over-burst finish! :)

And it kind of feels things have come full circle
In a lovely RCF way too.
I was inspired to create my Strat
By @peachy901’s beautiful MJT Strat that he had commissioned a couple(?) of years ago...
