Built a new CBG for a buddy of mine last Sunday. This one has a P90 and a Strat bridge (with trem block!), and an old Squire neck we bastardized to accept 3 x 3 tuners. It came out OK, but he wanted it neck through so it's more or less a solid body. We used scrap pieces of oak flooring to bolt onto the neck:






(Robin, this is not your old neck, I promise!)


I haven't heard it yet, I sent him home with it unwired as we ran out of time.


My motto with these CBG builds is: "If you spend more than a day on it, you're doing something wrong".
