It's pretty much all done, just adding the buffer then I'm done, I realized how much easier it is on guitars that aren't strats haha since everything is on the back, don't have to keep flipping the guitar and worrying about the length of the wire once the pickguard is on!

Should be here tomorrow or saturday! Can't wait to test it out!

That's a Carvin stock c-22 in the neck, super 2 in the middle and a seymour duncan 59 in the bridge!

I went with the unity gain version of waldo's buffer aswell, no reason behind doing that at all just thought I'd try something different :smile:

Hey Greg, that's sweet! I like that pickguard...is that an SDS-1 in the neck? I'm guessing that the paddle switch between the tone knobs is the obel? And the two mini toggles are the coil splits? is your bridge hum not split? yah, really the way to go is what you did, with the dual jacks on the side/bottom...my switches are pretty much in the same spot as yours...I find them very easy to find, especially after a little time...do you find your tone beefier, yet still capable of that 'glassy' strat tone as well? Anyways, looks great, duder! :-)

Still a work in progress and don't mind the crap routing job. I have a sweet sheilded plate That fits just perfect. Stacked with dp104's magnetically in phase and wired. Push pull 500k w/.022 uf caps. Pull to coil spit. Soon to be changed to individual dpdt's. In this shot I have the cae sound jangletone unity buffer for now which can be bypassed(until I receive my TPC1 from the king waldo which will alway remain on),external stratoblaster at start of fx loop run same as internal,fx loop can be bypassed,roland midi sensor to 1/4 jack on ground processor. Piezo pup blended with split gibson bucker to add Cripe acoustic tone. Single JBL e120-8ohm in russian birch cab angled at rib cage level. Fender Deluxe with dual 6l6gc- 5881 and dual 12ax7a tubes and treble,mid,bass tone pots modded to jer spec's.
Will post updates when I preamp out to my MC2100 and the guitar is finalized. Parts slowly comin in one by one.

I just wanted to add mine to the list...and say thank you to everyone on this board - needless to say couldn't have done it without you.

Standard stuff but 3 way S/P/C for the pu's, I added waldo's buffer but also kept my blaster - A huge thanks to Brian at 9mileskid who came up with a great solution plate (please disregard the steal your face (I added that)). I added a push pull on the bottom tone knob to turn the neck pu on and off for leo's missing two. And added a brass nut and saddles.
