La Cabronita Build
I’ve recently finished this La Cabronita style build, using yet another body from GuitarBuild.co.uk.
It’s pretty much Fender specification, down to the USA Standard Stratocaster hardtail bridge, pearl button tuners and of course, TV Jones Powertron pickups.
Rather than the S1 switch, I have used a normal push-push pot to bring in a tone circuit which just tames the high frequencies a bit.
I’ll need to dismantle this guitar at some point and refinish it. When I applied the clearcoat I accidentally used a spraygun which had some metal flake residue in it which gave the guitar body a bit of sparkle. I was impatient to assemble the guitar and try it out so it is currently a bit glittery.
Update 27 August
I have now repainted my guitar and am really enjoying playing it. It’s my favourite guitar at the moment and the TV Jones pickups sound wonderful.
