    I ended up doing a satin lacquer on the neck - really light but protects

    found some waterslide decals for the neck and then got the neck and body back together!!!


    nut now attached, need to wire up the electronics next and get it set up!!!

        Looks fantastic, that guitar deserved nothing less than a great restoration.

          So a happy ending to this thread! Got everything put back together. A bit of setup still to do with the nut, but otherwise I’m really pretty much done other than getting the wiring 100% which I’ll document here as well. Got a hold of another Holdsworth enthusiasts who has 4(!) of them and he was able to help with the wiring schematics. The only thing I can’t 100% verify is the spec of the capacitor that is always in line. The switched capacitor is a 203 but unsure about the other.
          Anyway, some pics of the finished product:

                  That turned out great! Congratulations! How does it play? Does it have a different feel from other strat type guitars you have played?

                  BTW, the skunk stripe was the right call. It is just such an important part of the aesthetic of that particular instrument IMO. It is kind of like the pinstripes on some old vintage cars.

                  It is kind wild to think that this all started almost a year ago.

                  Glad to have been able to help you figure out what you had. I do not know how or why, but when I saw it I just kind of "knew" what it is was. it was like a cosmic event, everything lined up to get that guitar back to its former glory.

                  Enjoy it and thanks for sharing!

                          Great job.
                          Looks like it was well worth all the effort you put into the restoration.

                            That turned out incredible!
                            As for learning Holdsworth tunes- be careful, some of those chords are unbelievably hard to finger.
