    May be that your phone's camera is set to "landscape", not "portrait". You may or may not have a setting to alter that.

    no, the pics are not sideways on my phone.
    Also, they are not sideways on other websites I have posted pics on.
    I was country before they took the O out.

    Your photo/gallery app may still be set to display in "landscape". Your phone may be auto rotating it so you see it right-side-up,
    and some sites auto correct for this by rotating, some don't. I reckon this site don't.

    the amber finish matches the body amber really well, nice job.
    definitely like the darker rosewood, I sold a MIM anniversary neck and wish I had that back...at the time I was obsessed with the us logo or something probably flipped it for something.. it was a slick dark rosewood beautiful thing.

    the clearcoat and polishing that up is not easy imo. i try about every 8yrs and it never goes well..lol

    off topic but it looks like your at work, the background a warehouse?....so does your boss let you play guitar and do fret work on the clock? if so...where can I apply? ha

    if it's not happening in the room, it ain't gonna happen on tape.-H.Gerst

    Yes, I'm at work in the pic. It's a large grocery store and the managers offices are upstairs. I manage the meat market. The picture was taken in the store managers office. The store managers is into rock and roll and guitars himself and he wanted me to bring the strat in so he could check it out.
    He snapped the pic of me holding it.

    Jimi, do you find that certain bodies and necks don't mesh well together? Like you could have a high quality body and neck yet they don't sound right together? Kind of like explained in this video where certain things just don't match:


    What companies do you use for the body and neck? Do they have to modify headstocks to avoid Fender trademark infringement, and if so, do they look odd?

    I use allparts for necks. They are licensed fender replacement and have the correct headstock. They are the best deal for a quality neck with the correct headstock. I haven't had issues with necks and bodies matching and sounding good together. If the neck pocket isn't routed crookedly, and the neck heel matches the neck pocket route... everything else is tweakable.

    Yeah the Allpart necks look like good deals, but I like 1.65 nut and vintage frets, and I don't see tweakable options like that on the Jazzmaster necks. I had to go with USACG since I could customize those. I hope there's no weird mismatch like in that video. We'll see! I am going to do a natural water based dye with shellac over it for my first.
