I'm a hobbyist woodworker, a professional musician, and have a guitarist friend that challenged me to make my first electric. I started the build before I found this challenge, but only a few days ago (so you haven't missed much). I did put a couple pix on my Insta. The plan started with a Strat template, but I'm not trying to make a strict replica. The body is a mix of scraps--poplar, ash, cherry, red oak, with some thin highlight strips of purpleheart and padauk. The neck, not started yet, will be maple, with a purpleheart fretboard. Pickups will be Seymour Duncan humbuckers, with a 3-way switch, two tone controls and a volume knob.
