I made this Baretta II body router template this afternoon.

At this point, I'm thinking about doing a mahogany body with a natural wood/tung oil finish, maple strat style neck and gold hardware.

And maybe some form of carving in the top, like a Celtic cross or tiger stripes like the GL burnt tiger. We'll see what inspiration strikes in the mean time. :thumbs

Thanks guys.

I’m planing to do a reverse strat neck, and put the MarsMountain logo on this one, so I’ll likely find something on EBay that fits the bill or maybe go with a Warmoth or Fender replacement neck.

That is great. Looks like another amazing build from you.
I am jealous. I have NO space to do builds at home. Since the garage debacle.
Hopefully. Sometime next year. My shop will be up and running.

Thanks very much. I wish I had your experience and technical skills. I can turn a piece of raw wood into a pretty shape, but I’ve got a long way to go before I will be confident and comfortable in my ability to wiring and set these guitars up exactly right.

Hope you can get your new shop up and running soon. :thumbs

Is that the large body or dinky Baretta II, I can't really tell from the template?
