Strip for Strat

Another guitar added to the collection - a Strat that was advertised on the intranet at work, and at a price that was too tempting for me to pass up. It's a Squier and like all modern budget guitars absolutely astonishingly good value, even at the RRP. Kids these days don't know they're born, not cutting their teeth on an expensive horror show with an action half an inch off the deck etc etc.

It's a fairly classic red with a rosewood board - not my cup of meat so I thought why not paint 'er up. First thoughts were to do a classic Strat repro - something like Rocky, or Stevie's perhaps even Rory's, but that seemed kinda obvious and although it's a good player I seriously doubt there's a single piece of nicely grained wood under there - so a 'beat up' flaked job wasn't going to cut it.

A petrolhead friend suggested basing it on a classic racing livery and it would be in keeping, when Leo Fender created the Strat he went to Du Pont for the beautiful paint colours that epitomised fifties car culture - the Gulf Oil blue is particularly fitting for a strat.

A small spotters badge if you can name inspiration behind them all, some are downright obvious - and no peeping at the filenames/metadata.

24 Step to the white courtesy phone:

Nice work friend!

Would love to see some of these get into production.

Then again, I think the Fender custom shop is only accessible by the mega rich and mega famous these days.

Good work Chris. Only one I can't pin down is the #23 one, and the filename doesn't help. Colours are familiar but just can't quite place it.

Really like the Read one.

Gold Leaf Lotus colours (the 23 is just my favourite race number - doesn't refer to any particular Gold Leaf car).

I like the Phil Read too - perfect for playing in a Ska/Two Tone band!
