The top half of this Strat style guitar body was constructed using reclaimed birch.

The bottom half was constructed using the same reclaimed birch, but with added reclaimed walnut and citrus tree inlays.

Great looking guitar! How about a shot of the back you’re describing? Do you make your own necks and fret boards or do you use pre-made necks? Are the necks glue-on/bolt-on or through-body? More pics please!!

Absolutely beautiful! I’ve always wanted to try doing a guitar, but wouldn’t even know where to begin. Steve, I’d love to see a video blog of your process on these amazing instruments!

Nice spalted birch here :) Fits very well the shape of the guitar.
