Can you tell us where you got your strat body cut file. I don't mind paying for one as apposed to a hundred hours of my time to learn to make one poorly.
You can find tons of Strat copy guitars around for a hundred bucks but nothing beats saying you built it yourself!

Then there is the good parts and kits from http://www.stewmac.com/
Yes I know the china stuff is made cheap and it takes a long time to ship. But...
$27 for a finished maple strat neck with free shipping! They have Belcat pickups there which are fair quality.
$27... Why would I make one?

Because you can.........

Ya... I hear ya. That's the answer I give people when they ask "Why are you building your old german shepherd a dog elevator".
Should be done in a few weeks. Using an electric hoist and arduino's for controls.
