  1. so officially starting up my next project... 3 teles. Working on templates for now, and have setup my body blanks... but figured I'd kick the build thread off. so first up... "The Broadchaser". Planning this to be sort of a 'modern classic' - vintage looks with modern electronics (more than likely 6 way rotary). The main milestone here will be doing a relic finish. This one I'm calling the "Gipsum Les Flaws". Sort of tongue in cheek - not sure if I'll stick with the inlay/name as I don't want to anger the gods... but this should be a carved flame top over a quilt ma
  2. I saw the four position Telecaster switches that Obsidian offers and got to thinking I could use two of those to create an interesting sound chain in a dual humbucker design (one switch per humbucker). My thinking is that I can wire the switches to give me the following options: single coil (bridge side), single coil (neck side), both single coils (parallel), and humbucker. Combine that with a three way toggle switch (ala Les Paul) and I imagine I could have the ability to create a guitar with 24 pickup sounds (4 single coil, 6 dual single coil, 3 humbucker, 4 tripple single coil, 1 quad sin
  3. Hi guys (and gals)! I am not just new to this site, but to guitar building as well. I have created a YouTube channel ( https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6U6BfZTF3u_K2G-rql_HsQ ) to document my progress. Once I complete a build, it will be given away to one of my subscribers who comments on at least one video of the build series. I am certain I will make mistakes and do things differently from how the awesome luthiers on this site would and I welcome your feedback. The first video is a review of the inexpensive kit I am using for my first build. You can see it here. I look forward to yo
  4. Hi all, I haven't posted any guitars in this forum before but thought I'd show you a recent build. This is my version of a Les Paul Junior. Australian Red Cedar top on a Mahogany body. Mahogany neck, Ebony Pickguard, cavity cover, truss rod cover and fretboard. Mick Brierley P90 hand wound pickup. Grey tiger Capacitor. Gotta love that 50's sound!
  5. Hi everyone! This is my first post - and first build - so bear with me if I'm still learning! In summary, my uncle has offered me a guitar body that he made and routed before he retired as a carpenter; I haven't seen it yet, but I'm told it has a Tele-shaped basswood body, with body cuts and is routed for a floyd rose bridge and 4 pickups - two humbuckers at the bridge, and two single coils at the neck. I've been looking into what to do with this, and I decided that it would be fun to try and fill all four routs, however, my experience regarding guitar wiring is limited at best, and
  6. Hi Here is how I shaped the body for my Tele Style DIY kit.
  7. Project guitar Hello ! Thanks for stopping by ! I am building my first electric guitar (thus me being new on projectguitar.com). I will make a review of my build on YouTube or instructables and I'll gladly share it here, but I'm not finished yet! I need your help with the finish. This is my thinline/Nashville tele. I would have had loads of photos to show you but I still haven't figured out the 501 MB file thing for uploading photos.... Here are a few facts about my build : It is made out of two mahogany panels (each made of two pieces) glued one on top of the othe
  8. Hi, first time poster! I have googled around and searched the forum to see if I could find some answers to this question but I've not been able to locate any. Help very much appreciated! I've just finished building my first guitar (Tele copy from premade neck and premade unfinished body) and it looks great and plays lovely! However, I can't get any signal from the bridge pick up. I've looked at several possible issued/solutions but can't figure it out. I'd be very grateful for any advice, as I've not been able to identify any solutions anywhere online and I'm a bit stumped at this po
  9. I don't know how many of you will remember me, but I am back in the luthier business! I finished Davids PRS (#3) and then took over a year off. It was quite stressful at the end, but had many lessons within. Here is a pic of it all done. More upon request (as with the rest as well). Before that (for anyone who doesn't know me) I built 2 tele's (one is my first, other commision) and then completed (routed, finished, set up) a tele from an ad on kijiji for 350$ Between then and now, I attempted a dual build and learned more, and didnt finish them off. More lessons, mostly with fretting
  10. I am building a 12 string Gretsch Tele. Here's a video of where I am at on the build. I'll post pics soon.
