Just to show it could be done to anal epic proportions. I had a 1960 Stratocaster in for restoration. So I templated that very guitar and made its twin. Lots of little details in materials and build. Old school routing including tool marks of pin router slop. Brazilian Rosewood, clay dots, Celluloid Pickguard, Nylon knobs ….. had the bridge machined to the old specs. The only part on this thing off the shelf are the tuners and fretwire. Everything else had to be made. Knobs cast, pickup covers, Italian celluoid which I had made 2 years ago … Now I play it.
