  • Guitar Of The Month - March 2020

    The Shiv

    This is my first build documented here on Project Guitar, and my first submission to the guitar of the month.  I've been building since highschool, but took a ~10 year break from full builds to focus on playing and modifying, with my first full guitar "back in the saddle" being last year, and now this one.  It's the most complex build I'd done to date, and features a bunch of ideas I've collected from other builders over the years.  I wanted this to look aggressive yet refined, and included some subtle details to that effect, like the diamond volute, solid aluminum logo, and magnetized curly maple cavity cover.  

    Build thread: 



    - African mahogany body

    - Curly maple top and headstock cap, natural curly maple binding throughout

    - 5 piece neck, curly maple and ebony strips

    - Pau ferro fingerboard and truss rod cover, solid MOP offset dot inlays

    - 25.5" scale, 24 Jescar jumbo stainless steel frets, partially scalloped

    - Bareknuckle Holy Diver pickups

    - Gotoh Tune-O-Matic bridge

    - Hipshot locking tuners, reverse headstock

    - 3-way toggle, volume, tone, and two coil spitting switches, one for each humbucker

    - Satin lacquer finish
