This crafted guitar was a combined effort of Joe MaGee and myself. I made the patterns in the body and then I gave to Joe to shape, finish and install the hardware. The woods included are , Tiger maple, quilted maple, wenge, cherry, walnut, and rosewood. Custom electric guitar.

You know there are a million and one strats and just as many patterns and I have to say “now that is new and unique!”
Nicely done

Beautiful > kinda reminds me of Clapton’s Custom Shop patterns – only your’s looks more natural = un-sprayed wood. Did you make the quilted Maple neck?

Thank you all for your comments. The quilted maple on the neck is from a batch of hard curly maple that I bought and a few boards of the quilted came mixed with it
