    Stratocaster Build - From Scratch

    Thread Starter: Julie Moriarty

    While I'm waiting for the parts to arrive for the Tele (delivery is slow during the gift giving season), I decided to get a start on the guitar that I've wanted for a VERY long time. :) I went to Guitarre Plans and downloaded everything I could find on the Strat - .jpg, .pdf, .dwg & .dfx. ...

    stropping

    Thread Starter: Noah Wagener
