Post Building A Telesavalas
yeah, I started building my telesavalas right away when I got a plexiglas plate. I started with the pickguard.

This is the outline for the pickguard
Image

But as usual, nothing goes right :D
I found the outline on the net, so it's suitable for Ibanez bodies, not with plywood strat copies :D
Image

So I decided to draw it by hand
Image

Cutting
Image

JUST Cut
Image

Trial Fitting of the controls, sanding needed
Image

BUMP! since I don't have the humbuckers, I did not cut the holes for them, and I peeled the protective nylon layer off, well, we all do mistakes :D

This is all so far, I did this in like 30 minutes, in my room last night :D today I might be getting black hardware and the humbuckers.
Thanks for checking out!! :D :D

Why you doing it on a strat? why not just get a cheap RG body?

they don't sell plain RG bodies here or ANY bodies. and me and my family don't really have too much mony these days.. so I just had to go with this. I'm going to cut the body in the RG shape. The body was already bigger as itself (really big) so, It will be okay :lol:

That scratch plate is fucking wonky as hell. Why didn't you just buy one and repaint it?

Good luck dude :)

Body Cut Like Ibanez, Sanded:

Damn! all I did was this, and I'm planning to remake the pickguard coz it was fucking wonky as mducran said, and I did it before cutting the body and stuff, so it was a bit inaccurate. And I'm gonna get it cut where I bought it. At first, they said they did not have a bandsaw, but I saw a bandsaw back there and I told myself an old Turkish proveb '' Instead of needing butcher's meat, I prefer eating my own dick.'' :lol:
