My strat needed the best there is and to this end I decided to
buy everything from generally recognized suppliers, although much
of what I bought was purchased from the internet.
I bought the body and neck from
www.warmoth.com and these
guys had a huge selection of variations on a theme to choose from.
What is more, they offered a sort of customization program so
that, (for example) if you wanted skinny frets, then you could
order your neck with those, or if you wanted a maple capped neck,
then that could also be accommodated.
There are no doubt many suppliers on the internet, I checked
out most of them before buying. I liked warmoth, because the
components were Fender 'authorized' making the strat have an air
of respectability as well as the huge choices of things on offer.
Each and every part tells a story really, but visit the warmoth
site and see for yourself, you cannot help but to be amazed at the
quality, selection and price of their kit.
So, lets take a look at what I bought from the menu on the left
and see just how great the base components were....
