Natural Ash Stratocaster – Refit and rebuild

Swapping out the body of my Ash Stratocaster seemed like one of those tasks which needn't take too long. However - after a finishing process which took a couple of weeks from start to finish - I'm beginning to realise how much I missed it. And there's still a way to go... But it's beginning to look like it might well be worth the wait...

Natural Ash Stratocaster – Body finishing

The new body for my Ash Stratocaster is a lovely piece of timber. I've specially selected it from a choice of blanks, and it's been supplied to me already well sanded to, what looks like, at least 400 grit. This is a quality body, and it deserves the best quality finish I can manage.
