Here it is folks! i really think it came out nice but more importantly it sounds great! Luis is still in recovery mode after breaking his hand so we won’t be able to shoot a video of him trying out his new guitar for a while but I trust it will happen in a couple of weeks… The preliminary tests are very conclusive and this guitar really sounds like a vintage Stratocaster for a fraction of the price of the real one! The neck is very comfortable and the EVO frets do magic! Stay tuned for all the cool videos that I will soon post, we are still editing them and it is not easy!

After sanding and polishing by hand the body and neck, it was time for re-assembly… Everything went back together smoothly and no issues were encountered… The wiring diagram from TFN Technologies was perfect and very clear, once again Tom did a fantastic job with the diagram! at the time of the photos I was still waiting for my home made jack plate to be back from anodizing… the original plate was too small and the screw holes were dangerously close to the bore in the body… I made one from aluminum and TIG welded it together with my ESAB Caddy Tig 2200 AC/DC welder and sent it out for anodizing along with a bunch of parts from a bicycle… The result really sucked so I had to resort to flat black paint, see finished photos… I will have to find a better company for my anodizing needs in the future!

Finally, the Yamaha Pacifica of my friend and guitar teacher Luis is done! The project went really smooth and the result very good… A lot of work has been done to this beast and it is all documented on video, which we are presently editing… Don’t forget to check out the re-assembly and the final result…
