So maybe I have a few spare minutes a weekend and wanted to do some builds for myself. What about a SG respin. Something less Gibson and more modern. It won't be like before as I am no longer "in business" just finally gotten back into playing and have a lot of wood in the old garage.
Phew. It feels like far too long since I've done a proper project thread. Mostly this is because I tend to save project work for tutorials and article content....anyway. As we progress through this build, various aspects will no doubt form the basis for various external tutorials, etc. We'll bring it all together anyway. So. The basis behind this build is a Khaya EB-0 body I'd cut a couple of years ago, and a Les Paul neck blank. I measured the two up and there's a few discrepancies that mean they can't be used to create any kind of faithful "dyed in the wool" SG. The neck will be about 1/2" closer to the body than normal, but that's about it. The objective is to make a simple SG Jr. style guitar for Nina, however with a single humbucker instead of a P-90. The bridge will most likely be an ABM wraparound bridge with the headstock kitted out with Kluson vintage keystone tuners. Not fully decided whether to inlay the fingerboard yet, however split trapezoids seem to be attractive to me at this stage. Unlike a Jr, the fingerboard will be bound, so you could more or less say this is a Big Jr? The TNT name is no small reference to the fact that Nina is an AC/DC fan....
