Project Information

Built to mimic my full size stratocaster, this little guy took shape slowly. I started with a single piece of basswood that I carved to shape.

The biggest challenge was stringing the mini strat. Eventually I settled on the strands from a small braided wire. These were wound and glued to the tuning pegs, then fed straight through the body (as in a real guitar!) and fastened at the rear to maintain tension.

Very well done.
The detail is spot on.
I like the third and forth pictures. Too cool.
You have a lot of patience.
