  1. Hello lovely fellow builders! Been lurking here reading for a while, and finally created an account for a couple questions I dont believe I've seen an answer to. If there are threads answering these questions I'm open to being directed to those and having this thread closed. As the thread title implies, I am in the planning and acquisition stages for a from-scratch 5-string bass guitar. I plan on having a through-neck, 24 fret design in a relatively rare 30" short scale length. My questions both have to do with the neck and fretboard. The first is, is there any standard measurement f
  2. Context: I'm fairly new to the ProjectGuitar community, and to guitar building, though I've played for 35ish years, and have been woodworking for 25ish. I've done a few repair/restoration/modification projects on electrics, acoustics and ukes, and am embarking on my first full, from-scratch electric build. I'm building it with my son (which, of course, is super fun for me) who has recently gotten serious as a player, and is interested in learning a little about the build process as well. Here's some shots of the shop, which I recently reorganized to be more guitar friendly (previous focus
  3. Hey everybody, I'd like to share my first build with you guys before I finish it (and maybe get some advice on the way) So I've been meaning to build my own guitar or bass since I was 17 years old, but it's a bit scary at first. I then decided I wanted to try it, 4 years later, but got disappointed when I failed at finding wood. Then I saw a video of a guy building a guitar out of plywood -neck included- and I thought it was a good way to start (also considering I don't have the tools to work with other kinds of wood). As a fan of the band Muse, I decided I wanted a replica of a Ma
  4. Hello Everyone!! I have just joined the site and looks to be a great resource! My name is Chris and I am attempting my first guitar build. I have no experience with wood working or guitar building, so I will be flying by seat of my pants. I do have some resources that I can use to help me through the process. My Grandfather is a Master Wood worker and pretty much can build anything out of wood or other materials. I have a friend that does all the furniture repairs for the Hotel I work at and last but not least there is a custom wood and milling shop a few miles away from my house. I got my woo
  5. so, my Ibanez -customizing project has turned into a first build project, so I started a new topic. over the years I have done some customizing: routing for humbuckers, replacing a crappy trem with a Floyd, refretting and radiusing necks. Never have I built a body from scratch , so I'll categorize this as my first build, eventhough I'm reusing the Ibanez neck I have re-radiused and will be refretted. The specs: Tele - style Mahogany body with 6mm Zebrano top (ordered) Dimarzio Paf Joe and Paf-pro humbucking pickups Edge floating trem 1 Volume, 1 Tone (push pul
  6. As with many others, I have been lurking around these boards for a while, but have never posted. I have been trying to learn while planning my first guitar build. I am planning a Danelectro style build for my first go, since it is a fairly cheap approach and I don't want to sacrifice a lot of expensive lumber to my amauturity. The design is a somewhat retro semi-hollow body inspired by both Danelectro and Rickenbacker. There it is as both a single and double pick-up design. My approach here is to make a fairly versatile sounding guitar, that centers more around jangle than dar
  7. Greetings, I just recently wrapped up my first scratch build. so I figured I'd make my first post here on PG. I documented the whole shebang on Luthier's Corner (TalkBass), but it is a rather lengthy read, despite all of the awesome advice I received along the journey. The inspiration for the build was based on the early 80s Aria PROii SB1000 basses. Being a fan of John Taylor, this seemed appropriate. Stats: 34" Scale 4-string bass guitar Macassar Ebony fingerboard (pre-slotted and radiused by LMII) Hickory body wings (later scrapped for Peruvian Walnut/Purplehea
  8. hello just found this site, I have been making my 1st guitar for the last 5 months. Body Zebrano, Neck rosewood, Fretboard macassar ebony. string through, Babicz bridge, brass nut, livewire pickups. I have few tools so it is taking longer then it should lol here are a few pics
  9. I know from a purely logical perspective, for a first build, a bolt-on is best because it will allow for neck shimming, the ability to rebuild the neck or the body if one is messed-up, etc. So, the plan is/was to use non-pretty "left overs" from other furniture, etc. projects. One of these left-overs is a can of DupliColor MetalCast Red Chrome. The idea was to go with the red chrome finish and black hardware and I've already bought the hardware. The conundrum comes in because I love natural finish guitars and it looks like I'll have left-over cherry that's wide enough for the body, but o
