    First full build from scratch

    Hi guys, A little side project I have been busy with. It is the red guitar I made but was not happy with so I took it to bits did some work on the neck and sprayed it white. As before it is made entirely from wood taken from an old pallet. It's tuned up and sounds OK.

    Welcome to the forum I hope you enjoy it and get as much help and encouragement from the members as I have. I will be only too happy to help you in future if I am able to.

    Thanks. its not looking too bad for cheap wood. It's the 335 shape. still working on what I need to do inside before gluing up. Think hardest part will be putting in the hardware.

    The bottom is now carved and am now starting on the top. This is the first time I have carved and made a semi solid guitar so it is a bit of a learning curve for me.

    My oldest son asked me if I could make him a guitar related shelf to store his vape liquids on. This is what I made him

    I just want to build guitars because I enjoy it it's as simple as that and if I have to use cheap and unsuitable woods I will because that is the only way I can build a guitar sometimes. I will never build a world class guitar but they look OK and don't sound too bad so what more can I ask. As I said if you would like to write to me let me know and I will be happy to write back.

    Hi Prostheta If you would like to hear the reason for my use of cheap woods I will write to you if you would like to coraspond with me as I do not want to put the reasons on the Web page

    You are right not the best of wood but I can only work with what I can get and as I am unemployed cheap it is or I would not be able to build anything. I'll see how it builds up and decide what to do as I go

    Guitar is sort of coming not sure if that good or bad... Had to go with cheaper wood due to financial constraints

    Guitar project has slowed a little bit. Believe it or not I have been building bird feeders, bird boxes and wishing well planters for people. I hope to get back to my guitar soon

    I have used the angle detailed on the plan and on the template but after building I find that the string action is too high which has put me off set neck guitars as once the neck is glued there is little room for any adjustment of the neck angle.
