6 months waiting for this
Ok so i bought a voyager several years ago and never really got on with the body and pickup but loved the neck - so after much deliberation decided it was time to use the neck for a strat build.The body of the voyager was really rough but the neck was superb and the brass trem was utilised in the new build :
The neck had a big chunk missing out of the headstock but the luthier who carried out the build - Steve Preston from Wyre River Guitars - made a superb repair,
The neck donor Voyager is pictured next to the strat build.
