  1. How do you carve the areas around the horns as you have in those guitars? I have not found a way do do that easily.
  2. Hey guys, thanks a lot for your advice. I forgot I even posted this for some reason (probably because of midterms). I threw together a small album of some of my guitars in case all of you want to see (I didn't included the guitars I have repaired because most of them are sold). Just to clarify, I have no intention of trying to make a living out of my hobby at the moment. All I really want to do is maybe sell a guitar or two, or even just build a few necks/bodies to sell for some extra cash instead of, you know, actually doing any real work. Thanks again. http://s1222.beta.photobucket.com/user/aik500000/library/Guitars Some of the guitars look a bit rough; I have been using the dark red one heavily (My luck that the ugly one sounds the best), so it is pretty beaten up, and the "sg" styled guitar was the first I ever attempted, so that one is definitely rough around the edges and in no condition to sell. Additionally, I wind/pot all of my own single coil pickups (still trying my luck at winding humbuckers), and so far they sound far superior to anything else I have tried.
  3. I am not trying to make a living, I just want to make some extra cash.
  4. I am currently in high school, but I have been building/repairing guitars for almost 2 years now (please don't let the fact that I am only in high school detract from the fact that I build guitars). I have "flipped" a few guitars here and there (repairs, neck breaks, etc. . .) and I have currently built 5 functioning guitars (Including 2 neck through guitars). I need some sort of source of income since I have depleted most of my savings in the process of building these guitars and purchasing tools. Flipping guitars and buying/selling stuff on ebay isn't much help at the moment. I would like to put my skills to use so I can earn some extra money, but I have no idea how. Where should I start? I can upload pictures if you guys want to see some of my guitars. Thanks.
