Comments: This cut-ST style kit was a fun build. Neck fit well out of the box. After extensive sanding, I stained the body a deep royal blue and the neck cherry red. I finished it off with nitrocellulose lacquer.
Though the kit accessories seemed fine, I subbed the tuning pegs with Fender Locking tuners. I also added an EMG David Gilmour loaded pickguard. Though it looks like a Strat, the super lightweight body gives it a twangy sound more like a Telecaster.
Anyway, it was a fun project and I think it came out great.
