  1. Purple Haze This is my third working guitar, it’s definitely the best one so far. I would say it’s heavily based on a Jackson dinky with some inspiration from ESP. This build had a lot of firsts for me: First time Maple walnut laminate neck First time binding and my own laminate binding at that First time doing inlays First time adding a top First time staining anything Certainly a learning experience but very, very pleased with the results. Specs: Flamed maple top with limba body Flamed maple with walnut laminate neck Map

  2. "For those that might not have seen my build thread, I built this guitar in memory of my firstborn son Chris who passed away 7 months ago, Feb 18, 2017. He was 24 years old. The guitar has special inlays on the back that represent tattoo's that my son had on his chest and shoulder. A Phoenix (mythological bird) symbol, and an Aries (ram). Chris was an Aries and we both have Phoenix tattoo's on our chests for personal reasons. Also smaller versions of each on fretboard and headstock to match This guitar is named "Phoenix" The model is one of my own designs, called "24 Magnum". It

  5. The SwiftGuitar I present to you "SwiftGuitar", sometimes shortened to SG It's an 'in the style of' Gibson's iconic classic but with a few tweaks along the way. I've been building guitars and basses as a hobby for around 7 years: sometimes for my own use; sometimes for friends or fellow band members; once for a Nepalese buddhist who played in heavy metal band; occasionally commissions This one is for a friend, Matt, and has used mainly wood that I had accumulated over the years and pickups that Matt himself has wound or modified. Spec is: Timbers: Top -Yew; Back

  10. This archtop is very dear to me as it is not only for a dear friend of mine but it was also a super-fun platform to innovate on since I had control over most of the specs. Essentially I had to use black and white ebony, amboyna burl, and it had to be an acoustic archtop in my Model1 shape. Other than that the rest was up to me! So I played with some fun things like: A bolt-on version of my compound-bend all-access neck joint Radial purfling using burl Carbon fiber (neck, neck block buttresses, and laminated in pickguard) 3D printed structural elements (can't really see

  11. "Hi, I´m Sebastian, 31 years old, living in Germany near Cologne. I have started building electric basses 2 years ago. This one shown here is my first electric guitar. As most of us, I'm already completely obsessed with the topic. Currently I'm building in a small 4sqm cellar room at home. My past and actual build projects are shown on my Facebook page. Do not hesitate to have a look and to tell me what you think: https://www.facebook.com/KaemmerGuitars/ 'Model 222' is a special guitar dedicated to a special person. On February 22nd my first son was born and my grandfather died.

  12. Three's No Crowd I've been building guitars and basses for around 8 years - many for my own use or for fellow band members but occasionally I take on commissions for folks who want something a little bit different. This is one such build. It's a shortscale (30”) headless four string bass - a commissioned build that seeks to blend a traditional look with some very modern features. It uses the Nova Guitar Parts headless system from Andre Passini in Brazil – an excellent and ‘great bang for the buck’ system – and is also fitted with the unique Super-Quad pickups from SimS Pickups in t

  17. Well I figured I'd enter the newly finished V seeing as the 3.2 was obliterated by @mistermikev in the last round, and fairly so. I couldn't of finished the wiring for this one or the last one without his help, so couldn't have lost to a better bloke. This one is called The Goblin, built for my buddy Ollie (aka The Goblin) and is now in his possession - I'll get him to film a demo video next time we're in the studio. The brief was a "flying V that's like my custom 24..." So it has PRS scale, neck carve as close to the Pattern Thin carve as I could get and with the same pickup switching,

  20. Hi I thought I'd enter my recent dreadnought acoustic build, 'Leftovers' Why is it called 'Leftovers'? Because it was made largely from bits of wood and hardware, some unused sets, some offcuts, some abandoned bits, that have been hanging around just taking up space over the past few years. The only major specific purchases were the top wood and the Shadow pickup/eq set. I have built it for my own use to give me a guitar configuration that sounds good fingerpicking (which my first acoustic build, an OM shape, does) but also sounds full and even when strummed (which my OM doesn

  25. @V16 Guitars, ES-O "Berkeley" "This is my entry for the October 2015 Guitar of the Month Contest - I have a little 1-man shop in a 10X15 Tuffshed in my back yard. I call my guitar line "V16 Guitars" after my favorite Cadillacs of the 1930's. I was the Luthier and shop manager for Chandler Guitars in the early '90's, and have recently started to build again, this time on my own. I have probably built at least 100 guitars in my 32 years of luthiery. This model I call the ES-O "Berkeley". It is a semi-hollow with a flat sawn Eastern Maple/quarter-sawn Douglas Fir sandwich core overlaid with a 7
