I've been in the market for a short scale to tinker with, so I finally came across this 1997 Squier Bronco on Craigslist: I already love playing the shorter neck, and I have to admit that it doesn't sound half bad as it is. It even has the larger, vintage-style tuners already, which is a nice bonus. However, I prefer look of the 1970s-era Fenders (think "natural wood colors"). So I've got some plans for this thing to get me there. My dad has an old dilapidated shed on his property that has some nice, wide planks on it (he thinks it's cypress, but not sure). When I go down to Arkansas in July, I'm going to salvage enough of that wood to make a Mustang body from it. Here's an inspiration photo for the project: I've already ordered the Mustang pickups, bridge, and knobs from Angela's, and the rest (pickguard, vintage-style wiring harness, and control plate), I'll be getting from Bass Parts Resource. Then it'll be off to Luthier's Corner!
