    they're solid as a rock. but incredibly heavy, and pretty expensive. gets old after a while haha.

    tom never covered the holes. but then again, it didnt always have that control layout. it spent a long time with the standard 4 knobs when in toms possession.
  5. i can certainly back warmoths quality. its a bit expensive but worth it. but then again you have to assemble everything yourself or have someone else do it and thats a bit of a chore.

    Yeah some of the wood is reamed out to account for the thickness of the top. Its a tricky little thing

    if you want any specific reference shots of the original guitar just let me know. i've already posted a bunch on my instagram account but i can always do more. just let me know specifics. IG: littleredguitars2
  10. nicely done! i personally love the resonance you can get from a semihollow but not at the expense of losing comfort while playing.
  11. probably not. i never really got into the 335s very much. if someone wanted me to mod one specifically for them, then i'd do it. but i dont see it happening.
  12. No problem. Hope its useful!
  13. so i mentioned this elsewhere (the dude ranch LP thread i think?) but before the whole Dude Ranch LP thing happened i decided to throw my hat in the sticker strat ring before i had even decided to come back to this forum. i had recently done a "tom delonge pickup shootout" video and really enjoyed the dimarzio x2n pickup that tom used back in the cheshire days. not long after that i came across this guy selling a bunch of stickers on reverb that were known for tom's sticker strat and it seemed cheap enough and would save me a bunch of work so i said hell with it and purchased them. it seemed like fate because people have been asking me to try and do a sticker strat build for a while. if you're not familiar with my content i've made some other tom builds in the past like the obvious jazzmaster , yellow baritone strat and others. so after deciding to take on the project i was looking for pictures and whatever else i could find for info on the guitar and came across this thread. i was amazed at the amount of info you all compiled. that being said, i NOW know that the stickers that i bought werent perfect. in fact some of them are just straight up wrong. wrong colors , wrong sizing. but i decided to go ahead with it anyway since i already bought the guitar (the hot rails squier that was recommended earlier in the thread, it really was the closest choice) and modded it with the pickups. so after all was said and done, here i am. i just uploaded a new guitar cover using said sticker strat and i gotta say, even though its not perfect, i'm happy with it and it was a fun project. i do plan on listing it for sale essentially for just the cost of parts and a little bit extra for the work i did. not only that but i video taped quite a large amount of the process itself for people to use as a reference on their own builds. its a long one. probably a bit long-winded but i had a lot to talk about and wanted to be as helpful as possible. i'll be uploading that video soon. maybe this weekend. anyways, just wanted to say thank you all for the help with pictures and general info on the subject. it really is quite impressive and much appreciated on my end. thanks!

    Yeah you guys made some good points. I'd definitely like to get the stickers remade but leave them off the guitar.

    Its unlikely that they wouldve been left as 250k. 500k is industry standard for humbuckers although everybody has their own preference. The 500k will help brighten up the humbuckers
