how to build a frankenstrat...

a basic guide to guitar modification!


Although this was officially the first guitar for me to begin all the way back in Year 9 woodwork, it was the 5th for me to complete.Why did I wait so long? Well, in class this guitar had been damaged, and I had the idea in my head that it would take a lot to repair. a mere six weeks after beginning the repairs, however, and it was completely transformed from a standard red & white strat, into a Van Halen Frankenstrat (left handed, of course!) complete with wiring mods, and accurate parts (as accurate as possible!)

What follows is a tutorial on how I completed the replication of the paint job, parts and other minor details!
