  1. Thank you for the reply I found a better kit to build from, which is more like a jaguar (The type i wanted to create) Instead of basswood, it is a Ash body, should i still paint it the same way? Thanks Andrew smith
  2. Hi I am currently starting to design artwork for my first homemade guitar. It's a basswood body and I have no idea how to have it painted, what would be the best way to go around this? It will be quite detailed artwork so how would I paint the guitar and be able to play it at gigs without it fading / scraping off? I play grunge or metal depending which of my bands I'm gigging with so lots of jumping around and showing off
  3. I want to start by saying i'm completely new to guitar making. I am choosing to make one as this will be my tenth guitar, so i want it to be special. I felt as though making my own would be better than buying one. With that out the way, hello i'm Andrew. As this is my first one I will be building straight from a kit (This one to be exact https://www.gear4music.com/Guitar-and-Bass/Seattle-Jazz-Electric-Guitar-DIY-Kit/PZU) This will cut out some of the work like some parts and most the wood cutting. The artwork will be fine as i have a friend who has agreed to do it for me, and the wood work will be easy as my friend own's a small wood cutting shop. I however have very limited knowledge on electronics. I don't want the guitar to sound like what comes in the box so i have ordered some Seymore Duncan SH-2 and SH-4 Humbuckers instead. I want to wire it up to play more like a Fender Jaguar with that sort of control setup, i have looked online for diagrams and electronic's and cannot find them anywhere, so if someone could possible link me some tutorials as well as links to buy parts. Thank you for you're time, Andrew Smith :)
