  1. 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
  2. Hi all I am a hobby-luthier building my first accoustic guitar (I've build electric guitar and Ukelele before) The soundboard/sides is spruce and I've got bubinga for the fretboard want to keep it light coloured so what is my best option for the back? Worried Spruce will be too soft or the back, same with Obeche (which would be a strange choice but I have some) or should I abandon keeping the colour and go for mahogany/walnut? Any help appreciated R
  3. 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
  4. 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!
  5. 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
  6. Hello everyone!Just finished building my first guitar body and wanted to hear any feedback that you experts have! I started this project last fall (2017) and worked on it in my spare time throughout the fall and into the winter. It was slow-going, but I have finally found time to get it finished!It is solid Swamp Ash, with gold hardware purchased from various websites, and a creme-colored split-style pick guard. The dyes I used are the powdered alcohol-based dyes from Reranch. I chose their "yellow" and "extra dark walnut". It's common to find sunburst guitars, but I felt like I don't often se

  8. Hipshot are a savvy bunch, and to bring a new bridge system onto the market you have to know exactly the features it needs for the end user without making it a stiff and boring-looking item, or worse....an overburdened contraption that only a marketer can save. The Tone-A-Matic effectively addresses the most common issues found in traditional TOM-style systems with a neat attractive unit; both a one-shot retrofit for Nashville-style TOM bridges and a simple-to-implement high grade boutique bridge for new instruments. Generally here on ProjectGuitar.com, the average reader is a builder, so
  9. Version 1.0

    The Surunmaa design is an outline for a basic compound scale 8-string guitar over a 720mm (28,35") and 666mm (26,25") compound scaling. Initially designed for a single soapbar pickup (EMG 40-style, Seymour Duncan soapbars, etc.) with a minimal control pattern, the Surunmaa is a guitar focused on a tight toneful low end whilst maintaining a looser top end for more expressive solo work. The bridge configuration features the recently-released Hipshot Solo bridges allowing through-body stringing to be added. The modern headstock style derives from both an 80s Japanese influence with the a mo
  10. My current work in progress. Ibanez JEM Tree of Life style neck, with a self built BC Rich shape body, green invader pickups, a Floyd Rose trem and the middle pickup space will be filled with my own self made infinite sustain pickup.

  12. Hi all. I thought some of you might be interested in some of the free guitar lessons I've put together on my site http://www.phillewisguitar.com/Video%20lessons.htm Each lesson has a free good quality printable resource sheet for you to download and print. There are also a number of jam tracks for you to practice improvising to. I hope you find them useful. Phil
  13. I'm trying to figure out if these things are worth building, Occasionally you see prototyping pedals where all the dials and switches are built into a pedal, and you get to arrange all the electronic guts (ICs, resistors, caps etc.) to make any pedal you want, and fully customizable. So basically it's a shell of a pedal, where without soldering you get to make/modify any pedal you want, and you can even build/tweak exact replicas of almost any pedal. If it was easy and cheap enough to do: Would you ever use one to sculpt your unique tone? To learn electronics for fun? Or if you're elect
  14. Hello everyone, my name is Roland. I just want to introduce my self, and ask a few questions. i want to build a guitar. i have watched hours of videos and read more articles than i can count. I am very interested in seven string guitars, and i want my first build to be a seven. i just want to know where i get started and maybe a list of all the tools i need. thank you in advance. -Roland
  15. I allready made a topic where I asked some questions on how to make an electric, but what came to my mind in the meanwhile is that I'd actually like an acoustic! So could you please tell me, what are the differences (in building them) which is generally cheaper, and which is harder/easier to build?
  16. so i post this in electronics because i am working on my sustainer and it is going in the fretless guitar here which was a laughable first act guitar that suprisingly enough was actualy quite resonant. so i changed the scale length and made it fretless and started on the electroncis. i am actually working on the sustainer right now thought i would take a break and post this. a couple of pics for ya i know its a silly thing but i love the shape of this guitar and i am doing a gig soon where i run parallel delays into a master delay. the parallel delays are set for a ring mod fr
  17. Time has come for build #3. I'm probably not the first, nor the last, but once I finished my first guitar I had to start on my second and third. For the second one I was given some Hard Maple which gave me the opportunity to try out a few things that I didn't do the first time around. Most important of those: Building a neck. The neck came out really well... if not for a minor fault: It's to thin at the body end Fortunately I came across a piece of wood lying around that I could use for a new neck. I not sure what kind of wood it is, but I'm guessing Walnut. Anyhow, along with a friend
