Offset Axis/Mustang


Recommended Posts

Having stole this neck off a free plywood s-style from craigslist. I had previously bought a piece of basswood that went unused, so this will be a great use for it. Not really sure what the story is with the drill through on the neck, but I think some extra fret markers will cover it up and give it a unique look.

After giving it some thought, I ditched the idea of reusing this neck. I just know I will never be satisfied with the results. So, I am making my own. Nothing special though, QS maple with birdseye fretboard.

Here is the body. I found some old sycamore drawers with awesome figuring on Facebook for $10. Decided to use this drawer bottom as this guitars top. Having tested a piece with India Ink, the grain shows through in a really interesting way that is way cooler than the simple black I had in mind.

basswood and sycamore... so pretty and light.  right on.  that's a sick piece of sicamore (see what i did there).  I'm not sure how the mustang part applies here?  

going for it on the neck - noice.  good for you.  you go!

And yes, very light indeed. I actually went super easy on the comfort carves because I am afraid of neck dive.
