Hi To All, Newbie Here And Going To Attempt My First Guitar Build

Recommended Posts

Hey all.

Just wanted to introduce myself. I plan on doing my very first guitar build and was wondering if you could suggest some books or otherwise to help me along my way? I plan on buy templates to help out as well.

Also, would a 9" bandsaw be good enough to get my rough design cuts done? Then follow through with the template and router?

I designed a guitar, and had a prototype built. But I plan on building them myself from now on after I get an initial grasp on building a guitar and how to set necks.

It did, but Im trying to learn about setting neck angles and such. Doesn't seem to be too difficult however, since i plan on doing a set neck over a bolt on.

Where do you guys buy your body and neck woods from? I checked e-bay but I'm looking for a 1 pc neck blank instead of something you have to put a heel joint on.
