hey all still finishing up my Zebra caster which will be done in November, but started on a learning project in the mean time as well. a few years back my brother in law brought me a bag of guitar parts to see if I could make some out of it. It's been lying around the garage for a long time, but I figured I might as well use it as a practice object. it's an LP copy that was worked on already by someone, doing some repainting and creating some contours in the body. Didn't like it so I routed a piece of the top of the body to put on a flamemaple top. after putting on the top and filling several holes in the body I routed the neck cavity and fitted the neck. Also drilled the bridge posts and did a quick test with a string to see the action and setup possibilities. This basically sucked so I routed an angle in the neck pocket to enable better setup. This led to a slip, so I needed to glue in a small piece of maple and resand the neck pocket to shape. today I routed and sanded the carve top, one of my learning topics. Very timeconsuming, but got some help ;-) and really nice to see the body come alive! the plan is to give it back to my brother in law on his birthday which is December 6th, so trying to keep the momentum going on this one. some pictures below of the process so far. the bodywood isn't very nice so I'm going to paint it black. the top will be done in a yellow/brown burst with Keda Dye to pop out the flame maple. next item of practice: routing and gluing a binding.
