I've got a Plywood Strat body that's the same color. I just put a metal pan in the center with a piezo. It will get a P90 in the neck and I'm making a neck for it now. It'll be a 6 string.

Repurposed old strat body, and a 1x3.

Tuned DGC. 35" scale. Two proofs of concept:

1. flat fretless fingerboards are fun.

2. you can use guitar tuners for bass strings.

That guitar is beautiful, I always liked the look of those Vox guitars, was it called a 'Phantom'? I love the colour too, unusual but suits it well.
