I spent part of my weekend in my studio with the LEGO and power tools. The Stratocaster now has a steel rod through it that runs midway through the body all the way to the headstock. Those ABS shavings get EVERYWHERE!
Gluing is the next step, but for now, I can pick up the guitar by it's neck and hold it more naturally.

I'm with Luke, drilling bricks makes me sad. I can see why you did it, but I don't think I could ever bring myself to do that to my legos.
There was a time when I felt the same way about the brick. Now I feel quite differently (obviously). There are some very practical and legitimate reasons to do this, and it's quite liberating. I've opened a door to a whole new world with this project.
