Super Strat Style Body

Custom crafted by an experienced luthier right here in the USA.  NOTHING, no part of this body is outsourced, it is entirely made in-house using sustainable hardwoods.  

The body pictured is the exact body you will receive.  Due to the nature of the wood we simply CAN’T use “Stock” photos, the body shown is the exact body you will receive. Multi piece body. The body has been wiped with naphtha before the pictures to better show the figure and grain.  I am sorry but we do not accept offers, trades, etc.  This includes teh body only.

Our RG/Soloist type bodies feature true 3D forearm contours and true 3D belly contours.  This body was made on high end CNC machining centers.  Others just cut the forearm at an angle and round the edge where it meets the top.  Ours are cut to a true radius.  This is true for the belly cut to.  It is made to the radius called out in the original print.

RG/Soloist bodies are designed with greater access to the higher frets.  This body is routed for a Standard Floyd Rose tremolo system (Please note:  There are many different versions of the Floyd Rose, this one is routed for the Original, Standard Floyd Rose.  Generally, it is pretty it is either not required, or easy to modify the route to use any number of different Floyd models or systems (Ibanez "Edge", Schaller, Gotoh, etc...  But this would be up to the buyer.  Because there are many different stud spacings and diameters, we do NOT drill for studs).  The holes between the pickup cavities and to the control cavity, and a standard 7/8" edge input jack hole, have been drilled.  The AANJ has .595" diameter neck screw ferrule counterbores for the neck that are .275" deep.  Also shown is a stock rear picture so you can see the location and size of the rear control cavity. 

This body has no finish applied.  Additional filling, sanding, and finishing will be required.  We HIGHLY suggest that you seal the body as soon as possible to avoid splits, etc.  This auction includes the body only, no other parts.  I am sorry but we do not do any custom work on the bodies listed here, they come EXACTLY as pictured and described and we do not do any alterations on them at all.  

BUT:  If you don't see exactly what you want,  visit our site    SUPRA-TONE    for our CUSTOM order checklist.  

Wood body.  Pickup routes are .750" deep, control cavity route is 1.400" deep, the .096" diameter holes for the neck do not go all the way through.  We do this intentionally so that if you wish to use a top mount bridge or a different neck plate you will not see the unused holes on the back of the guitar.  If you do wish to use a standard neck plate it is simply a matter of drilling the holes through.  All that is required is a drill and less than one minute.  The wiring hole from the control cavity to the input jack route is drilled.

This body is NOT Made in China.  It is made in St. Paul, MN USA by Veterans.
This body is NOT made of plywood, Lindenwood, or some wood you can’t pronounce.
This body is NOT made by hourly employees, it is made by an experience luthier.
This body is NOT a stock photo body, the body shown is the exact body you will receive.

NECK FITMENT:  Necks can and do vary in dimension.  Our neck pockets are made to the original USA print but you should expect some minor fitting.
