How much did the lefty hardtail body cost you?

Also how much was the guitar overall?

I am ass n elbow deep into this same project and it's coming along great!!
What I have: '91 Fender Strat body and neck (Jakes was a '74 Fender) jakes guitar was "swimming pool routed" for the reverse slant single coils in N and M position. Dimarzio SDS-1 N and M pickups (Jakes were same) and the kicker...Jake used a now relatively hard to find Allan Holdsworth Seymour Duncan HB...which I also have. So...A couple details may not be accurate on mine but it's gonna be REAL DAMN close. I still need to get the Gotoh black tuners with white knobs.

Correction 8)
he used a Alan Holdsworth prototype which more or less
is a JB with 2 screwcoils ;) and that's coming from the
tech-support at SD :D
