That’s a really nice strat….very well done. I really like your guitar work on the projects page. Note sure if you are into handsaws…..but I also play and you can check out my Disston blog/handsaw video with my guitar demo work on that (Using a red fat strat on it…...I do love my strats..lol). If your into it check it out: http://lumberjocks.com/jjw5858/blog/28872
Thanks for the awesome projects here, great guitar building.

What kind of finish did you put on it? It does not appear to be a typical lacquer finish. Then again, I prefer something more like an oil finish on my natural guitars.
