Fender Stratocaster [WIP]


(Para) #1

Hullo again BA!

Here’s the next guitar for my project: Fender’s 1985 Stratocaster!

Right now, I still need to fix the neck of the guitar and add it to the main body. I also have to add some more details in. Here’s my progress so far!

I would love any comments and helpful suggestions! Thank you so much BA.

P.S. Can anyone guess why I’m making these guitars?

Nice work, but there are some errors:
why is there a gap between the body of the guitar and the fingerboard?
The neck of a guitar is mounted into the body: https://encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcSCiriNt1fKRLMokD8yxupPscPzLDDZRbLZmNl3dwW0mNo9YjuALA
Also I’m missing the jack-in for your cable.

Looks to me like you’ve based your neck off an acoustic guitar, not a strat.
Here is a strat neck:

The body has to be thick enough for the neck to sit into it and the fretboard does not extend past that join.

Thanks @Colkai and @Sebastiaandc for the suggestions! I was planning on fixing the neck of the guitar later on; I just hadn’t gotten around to doing it yet.

An updated model:
