Chambered Strat®
Guitar Replacement Bodies


For years we heard the cry for lighter weight bodies — here it is! Our uniquely engineered cavities allow the body to remain very stiff while affording a minimum 25% weight reduction! This body is fully sculpted, exactly the same as a solid Strat®.


Alder or Swamp Ash under 3 Lbs.

Mahogany under 4 Lbs.

Quilted Maple on Mahogany
These bodies are very resonant, they even feel alive when plucked. Sustain is improved over their solid body counterparts and feedback isn't even an issue. Tone wise: Alder, Ash, and Mahogany each maintain their traditional wood/tone coloration but it's more open, full, fat, and chunky. Choose the body core material for your "wood tone" preference then choose the face or top wood for the look you prefer. Whether you're simply looking for less weight or exciting tone, you won't be disappointed.

Chambered Strat® Guitar Replacement Bodies
Rear Rout Option

When beautiful woods are used on a body it is often desirable to cut the control cavity from the back. This way there is no need to cover the beautiful face wood with a plastic pickguard. We call this "Rear Routing" and it allows maximum exposure of the face wood.

This cavity allows positioning of the 3-way switch and pot holes. Cavity depth is 1-1/2" leaving a face thickness of 1/4" except in the area of the switch where the thickness is only .090".

There is no extra charge to have any or all the control holes cut in their standard positions. Also notice that there is a recess for the pickup selector switch inside the control cavity in the back.

All rear routed bodies are supplied with a recessed cover plate and mounting screws.
