Well, here it is. After a lot of work and mistakes made, I present to you,

Angel:


I made some mistakes, theres a tiny little hole in the headstock from drilling too far. The paint is far from perfect. But i decided that doesnt hinder the tone of this guitar and therefore these faults are irrelevant.
Plus, they make it MY guitar all the more.

I am going to take her to a luthier this week to have an actual proper once over and setup including cutting the nut( couldnt bring myself to do that part I only set out the string spacing I wanted) And after that she will be done. Go figure, even before the setup she plays great!

All in all! I am extremely happy with the result!

I have had no issues at all with any off the wilkinson hardware on mine.
It stays in tune,the tremlo floats and cancels as it should,everything works as it should.
Mine did have wilkinson pups but I changed them for the texas triples,a little more output from the texas triples but the stock wilkie pickups were good too and I think I will put them in a future strat project.Would like to make my own voodoo strat replica,the one with the reverse headstock and reverse bridge pick up
