This Strat style guitar body was constructed in three layers.

The top layer is a sampling of reclaimed cherry, walnut, and mahogany woods.

The center section was constructed using reclaimed oak.

The bottom section features a three piece wedge design using reclaimed mahogany on either side and reclaimed walnut in the center. The inlays are reclaimed cherry wood.

That’s a nice combo, don’t see that much on a Strat.
How’s the tone?

It’s very unique. I can extrapolate from this that there is some use for all the cutting boards that are over-produced.

Thanks Doug. . . the tone is pretty good, even with having used Squier strat parts. The denser woods definitely make a difference. Later bro!

Looks somewhat like some of the early ones I did.
I used to incorporate a lot of different woods, until one of them made it onto a guitar forum board, and one comment said it looked like someone picked the wood out of Paul Reed Smith’s scrap bin…Here’s a bass that I thought looked cool at the time.

But never mind those wanna-be builders! I just took their money and kept on building! Your Strat looks cool!

Wow! This is a beautiful guitar. Not only is it an eye catcher, it’s a showcase of wonderful care and craftsmanship.
