    I have amused myself greatly over the years by bolting together Fender-style partscasters with features that Fender does not offer. Their business model does not accommodate the kinds of necks and bodies that I like, so they simply don't make that stuff. The folks at MJT, Warmoth, Musikraft and others thank them greatly for this remarkably bad management decision.

    Having had my fun, and having more than enough partscasters for myself, I'm selling some extra partscasters and parts. Here's some of it. Prices are for payment via check or Paypal f&f, shipping is extra at actual cost:

    1. Warmoth Snakehead tele neck - $225
    I put this together for a friend as a spare for when he gigs, but he never needs it, so off it goes. The body just got sold, so the neck is for sale. Very cool item.
    -1-piece birds-eye maple, walnut skunk stripe, clear satin finish
    -nut width - 1.67" | 1 43/64"
    -nut - black TUSQ
    -tuners - individual vintage Kluson-style, w/metal buttons
    -Standard Thin profile (.80" - .85"):
    -actual neck depth at first fret - .79"
    -actual neck depth at 12th fret - .84"
    -frets - 6105
    -neck radius - looks like 9.5" to me (to be confirmed)

    2. Green strat - MJT body/Musikraft neck - $1,200
    Body: -MJT alder body in Candy Apple Green - 3.875 lbs. THAT'S LIGHT!
    Neck:-Musikraft vintage-style neck, vintage nut width, deep/fat profile. Like a Nocaster neck. Vintage-style frets, dark tint finish, very dark rosewood board. Very minor fret wear.
    Neck width: at nut - slightly wider than vintage width of 1 5/8": 1.63" | 1 & 81/128" |41.42mm
    Neck depth: at 1st fret - almost one inch - @.97" | 31/32" | 24.55mm
    Neck depth: at 12th fret - a bit over one inch - @1.016" | 1 & 1/64" | 25.81mm
    Neck Shape: a lovely deep "C" profile.
    Board Radius: 9.5" (need to confirm)
    Tuners: -Gotoh vintage-style tuners, new, gold
    Bridge: -Babicz full-contact bridge, new, gold
    Guard: -4-ply, Green perloid pickguard
    Pickups & wiring: -vintage-style, low-output, staggered, NOS Lado pups - probably from Shadow.
    -standard wiring but middle position (with Schaller 5-way switch) is "tele" - neck+bridge
    -Dunlop strap buttons, new, gold
    -b/w/b or black backplate if you want one.

    This is a REALLY nice guitar, plays great, sounds great, trem works great, set up with 10-48 strings. The colour scheme is a thing of coordinated green and gold wonder.
    What's that? You really want this guitar but with a maple neck - I'd be happy to swap in the neck from the other strat, above. What's that? you want a white/parchment/greened/perloid pickguard w/white plastic? Sure, I could do that. Or maybe a black guard? Sure.
    Includes a Fender gig bag.

    I named it Paddy's Revenge, but that didn't go over so well, so now it's The Green Dragon!

    Time for a tasteful bump. I've sold a few of my Fender-style items, and still have these guitars. I have enough parts left to reconfigure them with different colour pickguards and pickups if you are interested. Help me get the total number of these in my man-cave down to the single digits. Together, we can make a difference!
