I'm thinking of making a Kurt Cobain 'tribute' mustang. Not because of the Cobain aspect, but because I've always wanted one and dont have the money for a vintage one or a reissue. I'm gonna make this Mustang out of pre made parts since I've only got enough wood for my other guitar I'm making (all hand made) and since I want it to be as accurate as possible. I'm going to get a premade body like this one since its the perfect colour compared to Kurt's in the EMP (wheras the current fender sig's and the japs are slightly different) http://s1258.photobucket.com/albums/ii523/IDanClarkI/?action=view¤t=fenderbody.png the only problem I'm facing is the neck. I dont have access to painting and finishing tools (hey, I'm 16) and I cant find an LPB headstock ANYWHERE. So I figured I'm gonna have to see about getting one finished for me (with a special 'lefty' logo -i.e 'Fender' only-) I photoshoped an image of what I want it to look like here (only with white tuners of course) - KNOW ANYONE HERE WHO COULD DO THAT? http://s1258.photobucket.com/albums/ii523/IDanClarkI/?action=view¤t=fenderneck.png other than that, its all gonna be AllParts stuff I guess. It may take a while since I'm dividing my time between building my custom one (Im gonna make a thread sometime soon) and because of the obvious cash flow issues since I'm modding things and making things all at the same time The Specs NECK- 'C' shape, 22 frets (vintage style), vintage ivory dots, 7.25" radius, maple neck, rosewood fretboard urethane finish(or possibly non to give it that worn feel) 1.625" nut width 24" scale length white 'lefty style' fender logo BODY- alder body (mustang shape) lake placid blue w/competition stripe (light blue) urethene finish SS routing ELECTRONICS/HARDWARE- SS pickup configuration - standard black neck p/up and black hot rails in the bridge mustang sliding switches 1 vol 1 tone (not sure of the values on his, but I'm going with 250k pots black mustang knobs chrome plate stumac gotoh TOM bridge mustang tremolo white mother of pearl pickguard vintage style white tuning pegs strap locks This may take a long time to materialise (probably wont be done by the end of the year) but I'll keep posting updates when something happens. I think Ive got pretty accurate specs. (its even gonna have a black EB nylon strap and .11 blue steel's ;D) lemme know if I've missed anything If youve done something like this, post some photos!
