First handmade guitar project

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone.
I thought about my own handmade guitar last few years and I decided to do it.
I have to say, that guitar is already done and I show you photos of process from woods to ready guitar

Specs:
sapele body with maple top
maple/sapele neck with rosewood fretboard, 25,5", 24 frets
Jescar stainless steel frets
Fokin pickups - Demolition set (passive)
Tuners, bridge - Gotoh

Fantastic, very clean and "by the numbers"! It looks like your shop (or workplace) is nicely equipped and clearly your existing experience helped you to make your first guitar an excellent one. Are you planning on making any more? You should enter that into our Guitar Of The Month contest next month!

Thanks!
 Really our workshop make guitar repairs over 10 years. And in 2015 we decided to start making our own guitars. After excellent first model I start few more projects, I will post some info about them.
And now some photos of first guitar. I call it Fresco

I like this very much.  A very crisp and attractive use of woods and colours, both on the body and especially the neck.  Top drawer stuff :)

great guitar. Very nice finish and overall it's clear to see the quality of build and finishing.

sounds good too!

Looks and sounds great! Thanks for posting videos of the guitar getting played. That's something I'm always craving at the end of a build thread (and honestly, I feel like it should be a requirement for any Guitar of the Month entry).
