TMRZoo.com 2014 Guitar Build

We do a guitar build every year on the site. This years' build is starting to come together. We are going with a Vintage Sunburst Fender Strat with a lefty headstock. Locking tuners, LSR bridge and most likely a Babicz Full Contact Bridge.

I just got off the phone with Lindy Fralin and he is going to do the pickups for the build this year. He is building us a Franklin High Output/Unbucker Set. We are putting it on a super switch to go

B - B tapped - B/N - N tapped - N

If you guys have any ideas for the build please pipe in. Here is last year's build.

The parts are starting to show up. This guitar is starting to take on a serious Joe Perry vibe.

Just ordered the pots, switches and caps. I am going with 250K they sound great in my other HSH Strat. One is a push/pull for a phase switch. Got the Super Switch and a 0.47uF orange drop.

The Fralin pickups just showed up. A high Output Humbucker for the bridge and a Pure PAF for the neck

From here on in, it's all soldering iron and screw driver action. Heat it up, and start screwing!

That looks like it's going to be a lot of fun to play, and listen to.

Everyone should be armed ...until nobody has guns.

Still waiting on the bridge. I want to line everything up before I start routing.

Being patient and doing everything in sequence is totally overrated.
