Each XGP Strat body is cut from hand selected clear white poplar... dense and toneful with MAJOR sustain. We rout each body to exact 1963 Stratocaster body specs... using MY OWN 1963 Strat as the template. Each body is hand-sanded, hand painted, hand polished to a perfect finish. This is a level of quality that YOU HAVE NOT SEEN at anything near this price. This particular guitar features a vintage correct Metalflake finish- positively SPARKLES under stage lights!
We use the standard single-single-single routing with period correct extra wire rout and exact vintage cavity rout. Due to an error during manufacturing, the neck pockets on these particular bodies are 57mm as opposed to our standard 2 3/16". Take a good look- the thin, hard vintage finish, the perfect contours- the USA spec trem rout. We're so fastidious about quality that we rout the bodies, prime them, sand them, paint them, wet sand them, polish them and THEN ROUT THEM AGAIN to create the pristine, perfect cavity you see here. There are cheaper ways to make a body, but none better.
We think this body compares VERY favorably to bodies sold in the $200-$400 range. BUY DIRECT and save!
