    C'mon man, those are for Aerodynamics, not weight relief!

    Oh, and Tone. Each one of those holes is an advanced Tone Generator.

    I like it. I wouldn't do it to a USA strat or a vintage. But a squier or SX, especially if its just painted but it might be even more interesting if the holes could show some fun grain changes. Ehh maybe. If I felt like it. Especially if I thought it would horrify someone or make them laugh. :)

    Me too. What would you use to drill those big holes?

    With the right size petri dishes you could have an ant farm....terrarium, sea monkeys, a kaleidoscope ?,
    Certainly chips and dip. Dry socks.

    Storage for picks, strings, cables, etc.

    I've been wanting to build a Tele from some kiln dried oak that I have.
    Everyone tells me it'll be too heavy.
    Not if I make it look like Swiss cheese.:ROFLMAO:

    Dang, you know I can't resist an excuse to go to Harbor Freight. Now I gotta clip out my 20% off coupon and go get that set with the 5" hole saw. I'll grab a woodburning kit and another free flashlight while I'm at it. I'm sure I have some heavy old clunkers around here to relieve of some weight. I think this mod might be in my skill set.

    I kind of like it too. Just something different and unique.

    Strats are typically light on their own and very balanced. Wouldn't that make it neck heavy?

    No. Strats are in perfect balance because of the positions of the strap pins.
