Me and my friend intend to build our own guitar and have made a crappy first design, could anyone tell me if this is possible and if it's doable since neither of us have built one. I was thinking of:

scale: 25.5”

body:alder

neck:maple

fingerboard:Ebony

inlays: custom M's and an X with arraws at the ends on the 12th fret

pick-ups:EMG 81(active) set

tremelo: Floyd rose(this will give us lots of problems)

electronics:volume,volume,tone and 3-way switch

So tell me what you think:

with all of my experience playing and building vees i have to say that looks almost completely unplayable.no upper fret access,no comfortable ergonomics...basically it takes away everything that makes a vee comfortable.

take away the points next to the neck,make the wings narrower.you can keep the basic W shape if you are set on it,but the obstructions at the neck end have to go...otherwise you will never play it.it will just sit on the wall

Thanks, I'll edit it once I'm home and see if I can get it playable
