Better than expected

Absolutely beautiful figuring and finish. The swamp ash is dense and heavy. I smoked a routing bit making some extra room under my trem cover for batteries. I do think the heavy swamp ash gives a great tone. The sound is simply awesome! But I wouldn't want to see Keith knock somebody on the head with this guitar!

Tobacco burst

Beatiful colouring, not too dark. Laquer is even and top is very pretty. Body is very light weight and seems to be one, at most two pieces. For that price: A steal.

Top end

Use this body and a Stew-Mac neck to make a dual mini-humbucker part - stratocaster. This body has a sweet resonance and sustain to it that make playing the guitar - pure fun! The craftmanship on this body is very high quality. Very glad with this purchase.

My new Strat

The Stewmac Strat Body is the "heavyweight champion" with a beautiful glossy laquer. The quite heavy weight with a deep resonance freqeuncy fits well with my "crispy" neck. The body provides lot of sustain and a real musical tone. It sounds high-class. The tobacco sunburst has a wonderful change over between dark brown and yellow. I think you see a little red in between. A great value for the money! Thank you Stewmac! Peter

I contacted a tech and had him hand pick a Blue Burst and Tobacco Burst body for my strat builds. When I received them all I could say is WOW. The Tobacco Burst did not have the tight quilting I had requested but close enough. The finish was beautiful. The Blue Burst was excellent and the finish was perfect as well. I am very satisfied with my purchase so far. Will probably follow up with another review after I have received the necks and the build is complete. For now all I can say is thanks Stewmac for great service and great products.

Andy Timmons Style Guitar

This body was beautiful. Especially the Tabacco burst flametop. I was looking to build something as close to an Andy Timmons guitar as possible. This was pretty close. All the parts with the exception of the pickups were bought from Stew Mac. Excellent quality and an awesome sounding guitar. I had to drill the holes for the bridge, pickguard and jack. This was a little tedious and time consuming, but it turned out great. Thanks again Stew Mac for a truly quality guitar.

After seeing some of the pictures of finished guitars, I decided to go for a Blue burst Strat body. The first one I received was almost black with very little flame on the front. StewMac's CS guy was very helpful and no complaints at all in that area. He offered to 'hand select' a replacement body for me and advised that I could return the original whenever. However, he emailed to say that none of the bodies they had in stock had much flame and he sent the best they had. So I now had a body and neck and started the build. When I put the neck in the neck pocket, it was way out with the top E hanging at least 1/8th inch over the side. I did all the adjustment I could on the pocket, but it was still only level with the edge of the neck. My only solution was to enlarge the tremelo cavity to get the bridge far enough over and widen the cutout on the pickguard. This left a visible gap on the treble side of the bridge. The guitar is ok, but this was a problem build from start to finish.

Beautifully Done!

I just received the Tobacco Burst pre-finished body in the mail. It is a beautifully done piece of wood. Very clean and carefully finished with no blemishes. I am very happy with this item and am now considering ordering one for myself!

Nice body!

You just can't go wrong with this item! I chose the tobacco flavor and I can honestly say I'm very pleased. The finish is flawless! BUY ONE or seven or ten. Nothing but great service too! Hey...someone actually answered an e-mail question I had. Everyone at Stew Mac should be proud of the service and products they sell. EVERYBODY GETS A RAISE!!!
