No, they're based in the US, but you could get a body
for a little over $100. You'll have to do the finishing yourself though,
that's what I did, and I'm pretty happy with the final product :)

The blueburst is probably Alder, the White Charvelized is ash :)

How much for a finished body?

I`m 15 and haven't the foggiest how to finish properly!

I might get an alder body, I don't mind its not the same wood as Jake. Unless its not too much more in terms of price.

The site doesn't work though, none of the tabs along the top work.

Has anyone in the UK made a whitey replica for £500?


Cheers

a finished body is probably more expensive than doing it yourself.
I don't think that ash and alder differs too much in terms of price,
but then add the cost for the neck, the pickguard and the pickups :!:

What sort of headstock should I look for?

I might just get a floyd rose instead!
