Pride and Joy

I've made 2 guitars for my daughters with a lot of their help.  Both are tuned the same so they play together.  Yesterday they sat out and gave the neighborhood a sort of concert.  I couldn't be happier.

Both girls selected the materials with a little guidance, assisted me with the drilling and cutting and pounded in some or all of the frets.  Too much fun not to share the result.…

I had an interesting revelation the other day when I saw the wiring for an American Strat side by side with the wiring for a Mexican Strat both with bridge position humbuckers. What was immediately grabbing my attention was that on the American version the volume pot was 500k with 2 250k tone pots where the Mexican had 3 250k pots. The switch is 7 way on the American and splits the bridge position humbucker to a single vs the 5 way on the Mex.
