  1. Hi - I play the guitar as a hobby and setting out to build my first electric guitar. I am a corporate lawyer and have no woodworking or mechanical skills. The only experience I have is building a kit guitar and painted it. This will be a challenging project and a lot of things will go wrong . It will probably get a expensive too, but I'm willing to tough it out and learn on the go. Here are a couple of initial drawings I made - they are rough and are based on approximate measurements. I will be refining it as I finalize the design and look up guitar plans for reference. I plan to
  2. I picked this body up on ebay. Someone laminated 1/4" oak, mahogany and maple to 1 1/2" poplar to achieve a standard 1 3/4" strat body thickness. I didn't mind, in fact I kind of liked it. I always hated a blank white canvas so to speak, so here was something to work with and hopefully improve. I was going to go with the strat shape but got turned on by some research of the Paul Bigsby guitars of the late 1940's. Could I honor his aesthetics in my own build? Hope so.
  3. I am building my first 8string and first laminated neck. I am happy using hand tools, and take great pride in planing wood square and smooth by hand. However, I just finished gluing up the neck of my current build and am beginning to worry about the rip sawing that is going to be required for the rough cutting of the neck profile. It will have to be by hand.....I don't have a band saw. Any comments and advise on how to proceed would be gratefully received. The blog on the build can be reviewed here. Thanks for any advise. https://clareguitar.com/2018/03/19/starting-to-make-some-progress/
  4. 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
