I've got a new student and I'm doing a simple bolt-on along side him so he can watch me do each step, then do it all himself on his strat. I'm torn on some aesthetic choices so I figured if poll the audience. Here's the cemented specs:
12.75" Barracuda shape with single EMG-81 and black Floyd rose and other hardware. Top, fretboard, and headplate are all board-match persimmon. Body is just basswood, neck is EIRW bolt on.

Red Options:
- red pearloid binding with black/ivoroid/ black top purfling
- red volume speed knob (no tone)
- clear finish

Blue options:
- Ivoroid binding, no purfling
- BSB (burnt stained blue aka 90s JEM7s) finish

Combine both ideas?:
- all of the red option AND do the BSB style finish but in red?
- not so sure about this option...

Either not too many people saw this... or not to many people had a strong opinion one way or another. Given this is a build to follow-along with a student so he can watch me do each step and then repeat it on his guitar I was bound by time. I went ahead and made a decision; I went the BSB (burst stained blue... but really more of a teal) 90s JEM route.

Or we just were convinced that either way would look great, coming out of your workshop!
