Here for sale is a partscaster I built using the "Eric Clapton's Blackie/Brownie" method. That is to say, I took three Stratocasters apart and played musical parts. 

The first tier parts went to make this guy:

This was made out of the second tier of parts (third tier of parts got sold off). All taken from 1990s-2000s era MIM Fender or Squier. Neck and pickguard came from the same guitar, body is from an older MIM Fender, alder. 

This neck has a tendency to backbow, so I put some fairly hefty .12s on it and let it hang for a month or so, and that seemed to straighten it back out. It plays clean up the neck now, however, I would recommend only using heavy gauge strings on this guy. The neck is stubborn, and I think if you put .10s or .09s on it, it would just start to back bow again. It needs a little bit of front facing tension to keep 'er acting right! (Due to this fact and the fact that I am now disclosing this fact, I am selling this guitar "as described.")

Other than that, nothing to report. As always, I cleaned it up, polished the finish, flushed the electronics, changed the strings and set the action low and smooth. This guitar comes with no case or gig bag, but I pack my guitars up tight and insure every package for the full purchase amount.

Got questions? Shoot me a message, I love nerding out with other gearheads!
