Chris, I can only handle one project at a time, and since the painting/drying/curing process with nitro-based laquer requires a full month (sometimes more) I won't be done with this one until late January, maybe even early February. I'll send you pictures of how it turns out, and if you're still interested, I could take a look at your strat. What kind of condition is it in, now? Does it need a total rebuild, meaning body/neck refinishing and new electronics, new bridge and tuning hardware, or are you just needing a paint job? If it's just painting you need, I could do that for you. It will mean being without your guitar for a month or two, and the materials aren't cheap. For example, just the paint & laquer order I put together was over 100 bucks, and I've dropped probably 40 bucks on stripping/sanding materials, and I haven't even started to replace the tuners or pickups, yet. You might want to consider doing it yourself, though, if you like woodworking. There is an AWESOME website that supplies all the materials you need along with detailed instructions on 'doing-it-yourself', it's called the Guitar Reranch, click here: Guitar Re-Ranch
Thanks for all the positive feedback - I'll definitely keep you posted with pictures throughout the process - it's really kinda fascinating how it becomes something so beautiful with just a little elbow grease and a whole lot of patience...
By the way, here's a picture of a Yamaha Strat-type guitar done in the color I'm painting my Strat, though this guy put WAY more paint on then I plan to - mine will be about the same color, but considerably more 'translucent', meaning you'll be able to see the subtleties of the grain much more clearly when I'm done. Pretty color, huh?
