The most consistent, top quality Strat® replacement body on the market today. After years of feedback from builders, we've revamped our bodies to include the best of vintage style with several important tweaks modern builders have asked for. Let's face it, Strats are probably the most popular and mod-friendly guitars ever built. That's why we've made our bodies ready to go, with high-quality woods and thoughtful features to get you building and playing in no time.
Make your signature guitar
Even if you don't have a shop full of tools, you'll make a great guitar on your first try with one of our bodies. They're easy to customize and let you build your guitar, your way.
Also, there's no logo hiding in the guitar cavities. After putting your imagination and soul into building an instrument, shouldn't it be your name on it, not ours? We want you to take the credit, that's why we've left the bodies unmarked.
If you want vintage or modern curves, these bodies are just what you're looking for. While it looks and plays perfectly out of the box, we've left the body slightly oversized in key spots so you can dial it in to vintage or modern specs if you so choose.
You can use the hardware you love. We've routed for a standard tremolo cavity, but left the screw/stud locations undrilled so that you can install the bridge you want from vintage 6 screw to more modern models. The bodies are routed for three single coils, but you can modify them to fit any pickups you want. When you want to modify the body, we're here to help. We have routing templates for a variety of tremolos and pickups to do the job right.
