Librero Posted November 15, 2003 Report Share Posted November 15, 2003 might as well break my newbie silence. this might be a bit long. anyway i'll start with the first part... i've been planning on building a customized strat for weeks now. so, what i did was visit just about any music instrument shop i can find locally. i found small stuff like pickups, tuners, and things like that, but no body and neck. so, i post a reverse auction in a local site. now i have someone selling me a body and neck of what he claims to be a 1960's white fender strat for roughly less than US$100. an insane offer, i know. the catch is i'll definitely have to refinish it since it was a mothballed restoration project, and the seller couldn't give me the serial number because he says it's no longer there. so, i put checking the items out on hold, despite his lowering the price to under US$80. so, do you guys think i should still see the body and neck for myself? if i should, what are the things i should check?
