Fender Stratocaster Rebuilt is a project I finished on 2007 for my wife. She found a Stratocaster literally in pieces, and kept it for a overhaul for one day. I am not much of Luthier, but was willing to give it a shot to fix this legendary Fender! It turned out great, still plays.
In an nutshell:
It took forever to remove that plastic white stuff. It’s actually a glue that holds the color on a body.
I used all original fender parts.
Used 5 coats of custom green paint, which was too much.
