It's damn tough to go wrong with Warmoth. The neck on my 12 string Tele is amazing.

My parts are from GuitarAndBassBuild in the UK. They are made to fender specs. The neck is from Allparts which makes necks according to fender specs and quality control

I have two favorite Strat colors. Black, which I have, and the Arctic white, which I have. My white one is a rose board however. Mine is an 07 and has darkened considerably in the Hawaiian sun or UV.

I like it like that, very much.

Here we go people! I am pleased to announce that the first parts have arrived!
The body is a two piece Alder body weighing a mere 1.7Kg (3.7lbs) The fit of the neck pocket is excellent, and the wood is of great quality. The routing is excellent and its, obviously, been routed for 3 single coil pickups. It needs some finishing touches to remove some routing exces wood but overall i am very impressed with the quality!

The neck is an Allparts Maple neck with a maple fretboard, its a C shaped neck with a 10'' radius fretboard. It has 21 skinny tall frets which I need to round a little bit and check if they are level (though I think they are) The neck also doesnt come with a nut but that was to be expected, and its part of the fun.
Its a '58 style neck with the trussrod adjustment in the rear of the neck near the body This neck is build under Fender quality control license and thus the quality is brilliant!

The neck pocket is routed specifically to fit the Allparst neck and thus the fit is super close.

Next up is starting with the oil!
P.S. Shoutout to www.guitarandbassbuilds.co.ukthat is where I got these parts

These are the same woods as John Mayer used, well besides the maple fretboard ofc.
Even though I don't "believe in tonewood" it's still a nice feeling that, if tonewoods DO infact matter, I am golden with a John Mayer approved wood combination.

This is the wood he uses in his Black1 signature strat
