Noobanez Posted January 6, 2009 Report Share Posted January 6, 2009 So after searching for the right neck and/or guitar I wanted, I've decided to build my own. I have most of the tools in the garage and this gives me an excuse to buy the one's I'll need. My largest concern is the actual working and shaping of the wood, so before I drop the cash on mahogny, ebony etc.. what would be some good cheap wood I can pick up and build a body and neck so I can get a good understanding of how the tools will work and my capabiities. 2nd. how do I determine what radius, scale legnth, pick up position etc are needed? I will model my work after most Ibanez standards becuase that's what I prefer to play, but can I really use and radius I want, and place the pick ups anywhere? How can I make sure intonation and tuning are going to be right. Thanks in Advance! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
