  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. 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
  3. Hey, totally new here and to this! I’m going to cut straight to the point. The other day I made a spontaneous buy off EBay. A Baldwin Epoch Les Paul “ by Gibson” Body only. I want to build my next guitar, I’m starting with a low budget and if it turn out good and I’m good at it I’ll make a better more expensive one in the future. After researching the guitar after buying the body, I noticed a guy in America has actually used this body on a build of his own. He put a telecaster neck onto it which looked great and I’m a sucker for a telecaster. The thing that kept going through m
  4. Hi there, I'm completely new to guitar building and have an unfinished custom thinline Tele design body I need to treat and finish. The body is swamp ash and I really want to make good use of the grain patterns and give it a charcoal stain look. I'm aiming for something like the attached photo, if possible. I'm looking for advice for the best way to achieve this and on the stains (brands/colours) to use. If anyone could help me out and point me in the right direction, it'd be much appreciated. Many thanks! Alz
  5. So I've finally started on my first ever guitar build. "Nozcaster" = a bit of Nocaster + derivative of my nickname "Norris" I have joined a guitar building "club" that meets for 2 hours on a Monday night, and for my weekly subscription I get access to a lot of people who have built before and a lot of machine tools that I don't have at home (and trade prices for most of the parts!). Due to a large amount of household DIY on the go, plus a wife that is keen for me to get on with that, progress on the guitar will be a little slow & steady for the time being. For my first project I
  6. 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
  7. I'd like to have a Rosewood Thinline Tele with Bigsby. For cost consideration it could be from parts such as Warmoth. The neck need not be rosewood (ebony?). In fact if there's a wood with good vertical grain a stained guitar would be fine. (And yes, I realize the pickguard is covering the F hole but I far prefer this pickguard style (perhaps the screw hole can move a half inch to the center and the old hole filled). Cost?
  8. Been playing with some different patinas on copper pickguards for Telecaster and have really liked some of the results lately. The issue I'm having is that most clear coats that I've tried tend to dull the colors or at least alter them in some way. The copper gets more bronze-like and the colors get less intense etc, which is a real bummer. Any suggestions for a coat that won't affect my finishes? Thanks, Doc Holladay

  10. Hey there! I've had a "first guitar" project going on for over a year now. Slowly making progress, or was it regress? That's what I need to know now. Without checking if it was possible I chose to mix electronics/hardware from PRS and Fender Telecaster. When I reached the wiring stage of the guitar build I hit the wall. I've done some research, but still don't know how this should be done. It would really make my day if one of you could download the picture, do a paint drawing on top of it that displays what should go where. So here's what I have - Fender noiseless bridge single co
  11. 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.
