    What have you done in terms of projects, and/or what are you getting into?

    For me, I have gutted my Tele, added a Bigsby, put porters in it and swapped the PG.

    What I am currently working on doing is gutting my Strat, and putting porters in it while simultaneously building a Fender Marauder Type II Prototype Replica.

    The Tele I will have to get some pictures, but the Marauder all I have is the template. I am currently in the process of ordering a blank. My Strat will look exactly the same once I get to gutting it.

    The only major guitar project I ever undertook was to paint a Squier Stratocaster to look like George Harriosn's 'Rocky' Strat:
