  1. Hello! I hope everyone is safe and well out there. The past few months have been a little manic... And very quiet... So here's a little update on what's been happening during the Coronavirus pandemic of 2020 and the guitars that have materialised from the Kemp Guitars workshop. Enjoy! And finally... We have other builds in progress and our custom order books are open
  2. Looking to order a one-off custom gig bag (i.e., not a bulk oem order) for an odd-shaped guitar. Any recommendations for places that will make one from custom measurements?
  3. Hello. As lots of others, I did just sign up for ProjectGuitar, to be able to more closely follow what others are building, and ask advice on what I am building, hoping for the best. So far I've built a semi-hollow LP kit, and restored an old russian acoustic (custom inlays, neck reset, bridge reshape, reglue, top refinish, etc), and I wanted to do a guitar from scratch. I found a cheap neck online close to me I liked a lot, so I designed a guitar around it. Beginners mistake, got caught with the flow, and the guitar came out fairly complex. The idea would be to have some sort of mo
  4. 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
  5. Hey, totally new here and to this! I’m going to cut straight to the point. The other day I made a spontaneous buy off EBay. A Baldwin Epoch Les Paul “ by Gibson” Body only. I want to build my next guitar, I’m starting with a low budget and if it turn out good and I’m good at it I’ll make a better more expensive one in the future. After researching the guitar after buying the body, I noticed a guy in America has actually used this body on a build of his own. He put a telecaster neck onto it which looked great and I’m a sucker for a telecaster. The thing that kept going through m
  6. My project of making an 8 string guitar from scratch. I am planning on building an 8 string guitar from scratch. Im just looking for some advise, this is my first guitar, and i know and 8 string is not the best build for a first timer, but i have my heart set on it and i am fairly confident i can do it. I have basic woodworking skills and access to most necessary tools and facilities. I also have a mentor who has made many guitar in the past, although he has never made an 8 string and doesn't know to much about them. I have a budget of around $1200 - $150 and i kinda know what parts i wan
  7. Hello. I am wondering where I can purchase an ebony fretboard, suitable for an 8 string guitar with a 28" scale.
  8. hey guys does anyone here provide their own cases/gigbags with guitars you sell? For my acoustic guitar project I'd like to get decent price/quality gigbags with my own logo on it. Anybody have any tips on suppliers?
  9. hey guys the inlays I made for my zebracaster were done using a dremel tool. I'd like to get a consistent quality and design for the inlays going forward. Doing them all with my dremel will not get me the quality I'd like to see. anybody use a shop or supplier of custom inlays? or maybe a shop not focused on guitars but on cutting small pieces of MOP etc in general? thx Age
  10. Hi all, I've recently started guitar building and I've begun with a starter project: an electric ukulele (les paul type). It's going well for now and I will post my build log soon, but I've hit a wall regarding the electronics . Since electric ukuleles are not mainstream, I couldn't find any pre-made pickups (aside from acoustic pickups) and from what I've seen by googling many tend to use regular 6 strings pickups. But personally I find it too large and it takes-up too many space on the body. So I've decided to build my own pickup (I'm aware it may be a little too complex for a be
  11. Hi there ! I've built a custom guitar and I've put 3 magnets. 1 single on the neck, 1 hum backer on the bridge and 1 piezoelectric. I use only 3 volumes (1 for each magnet) and a general volume. No switches for choosing a magnet. I must have done something wrong because the piezo does not work so good. I can barely hear it. Could someone please make a correct wiring diagram ? Thanks so much for your effort !
  12. The Free-Way Switch is a unique take on the traditional 3-position toggle switch manufactured in the UK in by switchgear specialists NSF Controls Ltd. The switch first made its debut fitted to one of Jimmy Page's Les Paul® Custom model in late 2007 for Led Zeppelin's Ahmet Ertegun Tribute Concert, allowing the three humbucker-equipped instrument to achieve six individual pickup combinations using an ingenious traverse toggle mechanism. By flicking the actuator perpendicular to its normal direction of travel an extra 3 positions become available to the player, doubling the tonal permutations of
  13. I Have free time and lot of wood. I'm basically a bass player so I decided to make few different basses. I will post them in one thread. They are: 1. 5str jazz bass 2. 4str jazz bass 3. neckthrough 4str jazz bass Let's start. 1. I never like a classic jazz bass design, so I decided to make my own modern looking 5str jazz bass Ash body Maple/wenge neck with wenge fingerboard, 34", 24 frets, dot markers, bolt-on Gotoh hardware, Folin pickups Jazz Bass Set.
  14. So, good day/morning/evening to everyone. Here I want to show you my second project. I call it Angry Strat specs: sapele body with maple top maple/wenge neck with wenge fingerboard, 25" Gotoh tuners and bridge Fokin demolition passive humbuckers set
  15. This custom guitar was made by John Woods, a master luthier from southern Oregon. He has built guitars for many years (since 1969 to be exact), including pieces for well-known folks like David Lindley (former player for Kaleidoscope, Linda Ronstadt, Jackson Browne, etc). It has been modeled after a Les Paul Standard, but setup to be wired like a Fender Strat, so you get the best of both! The neck is 1-7/8" wide at the nut (1/8" wider than standard sizing) to accommodate large hands and fat fingers. The pickup and tone/volume control hardware mount through the back of the guitar, leaving t
  16. We found this guitar at a vintage shop in Clifton (Cincinnati), Ohio called Mikes guitar. I am trying to find its origin or some information as to who made it. It has no markings on it, no serial number. It looks like a hofner violin bass but it is a guitar and probably a copy of the shape. The dragon inlay is on the front and back. Does anyone have any suggestions
  17. "Hi to everybody! I've made a custom headless guitar. It's a very compact guitar but it's about 2cm wider than a Stratocaster at its widest point. The result is that it does not fit in a standard Stratocaster case. I bought a Jaguar hardcase but it's exaggeratedly long for my guitar. I've made a compact, travel friendly guitar and I have to use an enormous case. I was quite disappointed so I decided to build my own case. I decided to document the entire process in order to make a tutorial that will be useful to those who want to challenge themselves in the construction of their own c
  18. Hi everyone. I thought about my own handmade guitar last few years and I decided to do it. I have to say, that guitar is already done and I show you photos of process from woods to ready guitar Specs: sapele body with maple top maple/sapele neck with rosewood fretboard, 25,5", 24 frets Jescar stainless steel frets Fokin pickups - Demolition set (passive) Tuners, bridge - Gotoh
  19. I've seen some pretty incredible builds on this site and on some of the guitars I can see special hardware like tuners, knobs, bridges. How do you guys get these? do you make your own? or some special shops not easy to find? I Always end up with the 'standard' stuff from the likes of allparts, stewmac or in Holland guitarsupplies, vox humana. any links available or members here that build and sell? thx!
  20. Hi Guys, I've just started my 2nd custom amplifier project and I thought I'd do a build thread here. Here is the design... it's been laser cut so will post more pics this week.
  21. Hi Guys, I started building this amplifier around Christmas, I finished it in March and have since decided to start work on some new ideas and turn it in to a company. I hope you guys can give me some feedback as I respect the quality of work that seems to be posted here. Unfortunately I'm having to sell this amplifier to raise capital to build my new idea which is a version 2 of this amplifier. Same internal components and features but in a smaller box. I'd have liked to have kept this forever but needs must! I hope you enjoy this build thread and like what I'm doing. Again any fe
  22. Hi there! I am wondering if there are any luthiers out there (ideally in Canada) that might want to take on a project! I'm looking to get an ESP style V guitar made with a finish somewhere along the lines of this finish http://imgur.com/evHxvho Please give me a shout if you might want to take this on or if you might have any recommendations for me! Thanks, Dan
  23. Hi Guys, As a designer I have been busy messing around with my guitar and finding a new cool addition for a muscial artist. I the recordstore I found a bunch of old classis Vinyl records and was sure to thing of a cool way too upcycle these forgotten things. After some experimenting I came on the idea to try cutting guitar picks from these record, with great succes. They have the right handle, flex and produce a good sound. With the lasercutter you can also engrave a design into the material which with the right records (composition of the vinyl varies with each label) you get a great effect

  25. Back after a few months' absence, I have been working on various large projects, including guitar repairs and a number of forthcoming commissions. At the moment, I have one priority build in progress that I picked up a couple of weeks ago after a break from, which is a standard Superstrat carve-top. I have decided to add an element of curiosity and surprise to my future threads, so don't expect to see the full picture until the guitar is finished. So, to start us off, here's a run down of what we have achieved so far with build #SG1013... The body is a two-piece Ash with 17mm thick Fla
