    Strat Partscaster

    I had enough parts to get 3/4's of the way to a new build. So I found a cheap body, a hardtail bridge, neck plate, ferrules, and slapped this thing together. The parts I had are a Allparts vintage neck specked at 7.25 radius, hipshot locking tuners and the pickups are some Tex Mex that I had. Looks good and plays great.

    What color is that?

    I like the dark rosewood fretboard.

    Thanks. The body color is called Dusky Rose. That wasn't my first color choice as that was out of stock so I opted for that.

    Replacing those cast-alloy bridge saddles with some genuine vintage-style steel Fender's may yield a snappier tone.
