Guitar my father and I built together. Originally we built it solid white but later decided to add a flame maple top and do the dyed red finish with a thin sunburst. Bridge is schaller floyd rose, pickups are DiMarzio FRED and PAF Pro and tuners are Gotoh. Body is made from ash, neck is maple with ebony fingerboard and two graphite rods for stability. As the result, I never had to adjust the neck in 10 years I've had this guitar.
I am not a musician but I always liked Metal and particularly the guitar. Before I built this guitar, I knew nothing about guitars.
A couple of months ago my brother in law who is a musician who also built a few guitars had the Explorer guitar, I immediately fell in love with it and decided to build one but more "aggressive", more Metally...
This is my first build, My brother in law helped me understand the measurements, the electronics, the ergonomics, and off I went to draw it. A few weeks later, Adrenaline was completed !
Neck : Not sure, he (see above) gave me one that he had laying around.
Pickups: RedActive (active pickups)
Electronics: Simple 3 way switch, tone, volume
Finish: Auto spray paint - Sparkly black and spray clear coat
I never owned a guitar but always wanted to learn how to play one, so I basically built this one so that I can start learning...
I don't really have much experience with woodworking but I do know the basics and consider myself to be very handy with tools and have plenty of tools. This has been a wonderful experience. I learned so much about guitars from building it...
