  1. Hello, I'm a quite new guitarist (about 2 very casual years). I've been lately looking at a cheap 7-string guitar with a Floyd rose. I already own a cheap but quite decent MICHAEL BATIO MAB7X 7 STRING - CBK guitar which I'm really happy with. I've been recently looking for a "new" guitar and I've found couple of guitars which cost almost nothing for what they seem to be worth. I'm fully aware these are counterfeited fake guitars made in china. I'm really interested in the neck through bodies that they come with tho. Is it worth buying for the bodies and bodies alone and installing new bridge a
  2. Hello everyone. I want to share with you my very first build. It is done now and I'm very pleased with the result. I am a learning guitar player (don't dare to call myself a beginner yet). I own a cheapo Harley Benton Strat copy and a nice Epiphone G400 that I use as my main practice instrument. A couple of months ago I came across an advert for this amazing looking Soviet era Ural 650. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1-OlU05gB-wKgwFtDqhuglWzKo9rbB2wv/view?usp=drivesdk Totally fell in love with it. But after doing some research I found out that these were of pretty poor qualit
  3. Hey guys, I am building a guitar and I want a humbucker in the neck and single coils for the middle and bridge positions. I would like 3 volumes and 3 tones, is this possible? If so, can someone get me a diagram or does anybody know who I could contact to get the info? Thanks a lot!
  4. I want to start by saying i'm completely new to guitar making. I am choosing to make one as this will be my tenth guitar, so i want it to be special. I felt as though making my own would be better than buying one. With that out the way, hello i'm Andrew. As this is my first one I will be building straight from a kit (This one to be exact https://www.gear4music.com/Guitar-and-Bass/Seattle-Jazz-Electric-Guitar-DIY-Kit/PZU) This will cut out some of the work like some parts and most the wood cutting. The artwork will be fine as i have a friend who has agreed to do it for me, and the wood wo
  5. Hi guys (and gals)! I am not just new to this site, but to guitar building as well. I have created a YouTube channel ( https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6U6BfZTF3u_K2G-rql_HsQ ) to document my progress. Once I complete a build, it will be given away to one of my subscribers who comments on at least one video of the build series. I am certain I will make mistakes and do things differently from how the awesome luthiers on this site would and I welcome your feedback. The first video is a review of the inexpensive kit I am using for my first build. You can see it here. I look forward to yo
  6. Hello. I am wondering where I can purchase an ebony fretboard, suitable for an 8 string guitar with a 28" scale.
  7. Hi guys so recently I've been wanting to get a new guitar and I fall onto doing a build myself. I have a little bit of an idea of what I want to do and the woods I want to use, but not too much detail after that, I can definitely use some advice and recommendations. So here are my plans. The Idea for the guitar is a 8 string guitar multi scale (26 1/4 inch at the high E and 28 1/2 at the low F) with fanned frets. I want to tone to be bright and crisp with really good articulation of the notes. I have which woods id like to use and ill organize from head stock down... Headstock - Ko
  8. Hey Everyone! Welcome to my new thread on my first proper guitar build! I've been designing this for a while and I'm currently doing an accurate drawing of what it will look like. I had help from people like @ScottR, @curtisa and more to progress in my design and make it better. So thank you to all of them. Here is the link to that thread. Just so you know, I have experience with woodworking and others so I'm not going into this with nothing. The Design So I have been designing off of a telecaster, shape wise, as I have always loved the shape. Other guitars I have designed
  9. Hi, My friend and I are currently building a Fender Jaguar in Sherwood green based on Johnny Marr's custom model. We are currently stuck on the wiring and how to basically put all the components together and which component's we would need. On the top plate we have a 3 way panel in which we intend to create: A killswitch (toggle on/off), a treble boost (roller wheel), and a bass removal/minimiser (roller wheel). As this is our first build we have vague to no idea on how to add these features. A list of components with how we'd put them in would be greatly appreciated, (also how to ground
  10. Well hello there, my parents got me a kit guitar. I once told them I was watching and reading a lot about building a guitar. And now I want to take the oppertunity to learn about "building" a guitar, even thou all I have to do with the Thomann kit is finishing and putting all the parts together (which probably is way more than I currently expect it to be) As you probably read in the title it's a LP kit. http://www.thomann.de/de/harley_benton_electric_guitar_kit_lpstyle.htm this one to be more specific. I don't know what kind of finish I want it to have, but I thought of eigher a s
  11. All, I am new to the forum. I tried building a fretless bass back in high school 15 or so years ago. Started watching https://www.youtube.com/user/TomVictorChiiron and was inspired to try again. Without further ado... With my first build I bought a fretless bass neck from Carvin - they no longer make bodies to mate with said neck, so I need to make my own body. Also bought replacement pickups for my MIM Jazz bass, but found out that they were both bridge pickups and MIMs only have neck pickups. The rest of the hardware is pretty much from Carvin as well. Inspiration: I love the Ricken
