MusicMan Posted October 15, 2010 Report Share Posted October 15, 2010 So this is going to be my first build. I'm doing this in my woodshop class (I'm a senior in high school) and I'll be using a poplar/oak/poplar-layering as a practice "guitar" to the real deal (swamp ash with a flame maple top). The main things I'm worried about are routing the cavities (I'm going with a rear cavity to avoid using a pickguard) and what to do if I want a string-through design (which is the Tune-O-Matic bridge, I believe). How should I go about doing this? I don't even know if I want 2 humbuckers or an H-S-H design, lol. The Dean ML will most likely be my body design, though, as soon as I measure an ML's body... I've been recommended Melvyn Hiscock's book so many times it's not even funny, but I don't have the money on me Any help/opinions would be appreciated.
