Hi guys, I hope I am in a right place of the forum for this.
I wanted to share with you what happened in the last few weeks of my life.

The last few weeks were very crazy for me, one of my friends from work said that she has a very old guitar in her house which she can give to me. Identified as a 1970 SOLO 2 guitar made probably in Belarussia. So me and my brother started to "fix" it and changed it a lot, still does not have anything inside of it, no pickups, pots, nothing.. next week I will go and buy maybe mini-humbuckers a new bridge, strings etc. All of the old stuff had to go to the garbage. It looks like this.

BEFORE:







And AFTER some work Happy






And after a few days after getting this SOLO 2 I got another guitar for free Happy

A completely hand made Stratocaster body and neck, hand made by my uncle who passed away a few years back. The STRAT was hidden deep in the celar for the last 10 years. So I am trying to revitalize it now.

1: the old white paint
2: pure wood (very heavy and I don't know what type of wood it is, the body is much heavier than my squier with neck and electronics combined)
3: first paint layer
4: and the finished green paint and carved two humbucker cavities. Before polishing the body


And this is what I bought for the green :D



It's going to sound awesome (I hope)

Will keep you guys posted.

The electronics have been made Happy
sadly the whole neck is messed up got a little curved after I put the strings on it.. .and it does not have a truss rod, so I will need to order a new neck. But the electronics work, I tried them out on empty strings.

The SOLO 2 project is on hold atm due to the fact that the new neck will cost me a lot of money Sad

Hi Happy

The green one has been finished Happy

In this pic ther's the old neck still, It was destroyed sadly. 






Installed all things. The electronics work well thanks to the guys from Seymour Duncan. Invader Humbucker in bridge position and the 59' Model humbucker in the neck position (It was designed for the bridge also)
The jack plug-in is in the pickguard for now as a way to test the electronics, it will be put into the normal socket on a later date, and there will be a 2 way Les Paul type switch for coil-splitting of the Invader Humbucker. 
A new neck: Canadian Hard Maple with a Palisander fretboard, 22 frets. It sounds like a thousand lightning storms Happy
The first guitar I ever made :D and I am proud of it Happy

Now it's time to finish the Solo 2 :D

Nice to see another guitar customiser! Good work on that Strat, I've got a custom hard maple neck also Nice One 

Also excited to see what the Belarussia turns out like, it'll definitely be a one-off guitar.

My try on a Scandal cover 

Still a long way to go to make it a good one.
Skipped the solos, couldn't figure them out
