This instrument combines all the features I like from traditional instruments, while being a new design with traditional roots.

Name: Build #2.

So called because it's my second self-build guitar, so no points for imagination. I made this one on the Bailey 5 day course (linked in my blog) earlier this year.

Materials: Mahogany body & neck, with an Amazique top and Ebony fingerboard. Amazique veneer on the headstock. It's a heavy beastie!

PickUps: IronGear P90 at the neck and IronGear JailHouse Rails in the middle & bridge positions. The JailHouse Rails are both single-coil sized Humbuckers, and are coil-tapped via a push/pull tone control. Standard 5-way selector switch.

Finish: Simple clear laquer. Limited to what can be achieved within the 5 days, and I didn't want to hide any of the beauty of the top!

Sounds: As you'd expect from a HB-loaded mahogany bodied heavy guitar ... plenty of thick, powerful, grunty sounds, lots of sustain. But switch in the P90 for some sharper sounds, or coil tap the middle/bridge p'ups for much cleaner, sharper, attack.

For more pics and narrative of the guitar taking shape over the 5 days, see the link to "Bailey Build Blog 2008" on my guitar-building blog. You'll also see pics of Build #1 (from 2007) on there too.

I'm just starting out with this hobby, and am keen to learn, learn, and then learn some more. So any and all comments, observations and criticisms are more than welcome.
