  1. This was my first build, a Solidbody Strat, made from Australian hardwoods! I used a set of plans for the dimensions, but made a few changes to a standard strat, I'd always wanted a guitar with dual HB's and so here it is! I've learnt so much from my first go at building, for someone with no experience at all with timber, every step was a lesson! I have no idea what to call it, so it's the AusStrat?

Do I need to drill an access hole from under the bridge through to the cavity? I would appreciate any help! cheers Frosty
