Well, after a fun honeymoon week followed by a work conference week, I'm ready to get back in the swing of things.

First, I'm trying to get the rest of the parts ordered this week so I can finish this project and enjoy it.

Second, Musikraft has a wait of 12 weeks for a neck, so I will be purchasing a CBS style Strat neck from the UK. Based on reviews, it should be a little nicer than a Mighty Mite, cheaper than muskraft, and won't take 3 months to come in.

Third, I just want to be one 100% sure on the masking tape size before I paint: 18mm (3/4 inch) 3M automotive masking tape. If I'm wrong on that, someone let me know lol.

Finally, my new bride and I re-homed/rescued a four-to-five year old mini dachshund. I think she'll make an excellent helper for this project
