  1. Thanks for the tip off about the book, a copy has been ordered So I've taken the project out of the box again to start having a proper look at it. The instructions go with painting the body first. I've skipped that to start taking a look at wiring it up to make sure it's all working. It's taking me a while but I just thought I'd drop in to say the project is still ongoing
  2. Ok good idea. I've never done any of that before either so this will be an interesting experience
  3. Hey everyone. Please be gentle with me, i'm a total newbie to all of this and i'm going to need some guidance all the way. So, i've decided to start with a kit build, and it has arrived, picture below. I've gone with a Jazzmaster style one as its a guitar that has always intrigued me but i've never played one. I guess my first job is going to be painting it, as I don't want a natural finish. I'm thinking a sparkly purple, though not too sparkly. A suggestion that has been made to me is car spray paint. Would that be a good idea? Plus, i'm guessing i've got to finish it with some sort of lacquer after painting? (I did warn you i'm a total newbie! lol) Anywway, there's step one, help would be extremely appreciated
  4. I get called all sorts when i'm playing. My username on this site is my stage name, yes i'm daft enough to have a stage name lol. My kit arrived this morning and i've taken some pictures, just want to make sure I start the build thread in the right seection which I assume is "In progress and finished work"?
  5. Thanks for the welcome The kit is ordered so as soon as it arrives I shall start my thread up and we'll take it from there. I'm really looking forward to this
  6. Hi everyone, I'm Rob, i'm 32 and I live in South East of England. I've been playing guitar since I was 13 and i'm in a punk band called Snide. I've always fancied having a go at guitar building and don't know where to start. Last month, somebody introduced me to the DIY kits, which I didn't know existed, and i've just ordered a Jazzmaster style one. I don't know if these are frowned upon here, but I thought it would be a good place for me to start? But, i'm going to need some help all along the way. My aim, because i'm a Telecaster freak, is to build my own Tele completely from scratch sometime in the future, but that's a long way away yet. So, i'm quite friendly and would love to chat to folks while i'm on here and get any help you're all willing to give me:) Rob
