Entry for May 2020's Guitar Of The Month is open - ENTER HERE!

Recommended Posts

been gone for a while-life/work/children had me quite busy. Glad to be getting back in the shop. its been like 8 or 9 months, although I did paint my shop (garage) during that time

this will be a present for my uncle who will be retiring in 2 years. it will probably take me that long to build it seeing how I take 8-9 months away at a time. He is a huge Beatles fan, and I know he will get a kick out of this.

Ricky 12 string. maple body, maple and walnut neck

8/4 maple- glued together. This back side will be routed out, and covered by 1/4" maple back.

Building a guitar as a present, great idea and very rewarding.

Hope this build goes flawlessly for you.

Good to hear! I had all kinds of nightmares with tearout on a roundover bit last week until I took it into the sharpening workshop and sorted it out. Crazy how a lick off a diamond grinding wheel can make a dull bit surgical again!
