I've just finished building this 80s Jackson strat replica, it's mainly chinese parts but sounds great for what it cost me to build. I built it based on a Jackson strat I saw Adrian Smith playing in the 80s combined with a Jeff Beck super strat with hotrails I saw.
I got this one built by danish builder Mørch back in '93.
It's extra long scale 36", B-E-A-D strings, 2 x 3 band fully parametric EQ, external 32 volt power, balanced output, selector for single/humbucker/single for each pickup, active on/off for each pickup, gradual phase pot for one pickup...and some other bells and whistles
I do admit that I went a bit overboard with this one...oh well...it sounds great, but you can never find a sound you liked again...just too many parameters
Built this one from scratch from mahogany and ebony. I started the project in '93 (I was 23). Completed it in'95. I had no woodworking experience at the time, but I was always good with my hands. I showed it to a respected guitar repairman - he offered me a job. I've been doing lutherie (mostly repair) as a profession ever since. Now, almost 20 years later it's still my main (and currently my only) solid-body 6-string.
