  1. I'm currently working on a build for an LP Semi-Hollow Guitar. I was looking around for the finish I want to give it and decided on this. However, I'm not sure what paint Gibson used when they were making this model. Thoughts?
  2. 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 dark. Because of this I have a bit of a weird idea for the "single pick-up" design. That is to use a Seymour Duncan P-Rails for the bridge, then to wire it for a second pick-up, using an acoustic soundboard transducer as the "second pick-up", with the ability to blend the two with a 3-way switch. The P-Rail would be controlled through push-pull volume/tone knobs. What I am not sure of is the difference in volume output between an electric guitar pick-up and the acoustic transducer and if the difference would make this idea a non-starter. Here are my template designs for the body. Option 1 was my first approach, Option 2 is if I want to get crazy with this acoustic transducer idea. Here are my drawings for the neck: Specifications: Body: Plywood core with either MDF or finish plywood veneer Neck: Maple, bolt-on, 25.5" Scale Fretboard: 21 frets. Poplar. I got some from my neighborhood finish lumber place. Would that work? Bridge: Simple Hard-tail, similar to a Dano bridge. Other Hardware & Electronics: I recently stumbled upon the estate sale of a dabbler in the guitar arts (sad to think about), but I now have boxes of hardware and pots, etc., along with a several of the tools that were already on my wishlist. Like I said, I have never built a guitar before. I have been reading and watching videos for a few months now, working on the design, and collecting some tools. I would appreciate any comments if you see anything that stands out to you. I am still getting my garage organized and plan on taking a "stay-cation" at the end of January to really take a good crack at the neck. Until then I will be practicing on some sacrificial wood.
