Members Stoneball Jack Posted June 8, 2010 Members Share Posted June 8, 2010 So i got the strat gas, but i can't decide if i should build one or buy one. so i was hoping you guys could help me out. I think it would be fun to build a guitar and awesome to play a guitar i built but i guess i'm worried cause i have never done it. Are there some things that i should be aware of that i wouldn't know since i haven't built one or is building one as straight forward as it seems (screw the neck to the body put in the pickups wire the electronic and i'm good). Also i'm wondering if my money will go as far or not as far or father by building one. If I spend roughly $900 on parts and build one will it be equivalent to a $400 strat or a $800 strat or a $2000 strat? If it helps this is what i'm thinking so far Warmoth vintage modern neck, maple with rosewood fingerboard. (i'm not sure yet if i want the compound radius or a straight radius)-----aprox. $200 Preferably an alder fender body, either cream or sunburst. Maybe Warmoth if i can't find a fender one i like----aprox. $250-300 Bare Knuckles (not sure which set. I want something versatile but that leans towards blues/rock)---aprox $300 Miscellaneous hardware and electrical stuff from GFS or Warmoth---aprox $100 or should i just buy an fender american standard and be done with it? If the American Standard will be better than this then i'd rather just get the american standard. I don't want to waste my money. Any thoughts?
