Eyes will bleed.

Quoting myself, I know, but did a quick dry run assembly. It intonates, and there's not any noticeable fret buzz.

So, place your bets. How many times will I burn myself with the soldering iron before I finish(this could mean either I get it working, or take it to a tech to do the wiring).

Nothing beats a purple guitar, nice job

Hey guys, first post on here. There are some awesome looking guitars in this thread!

I'm going to post my homemade guitar. I cut the body out, having designed the shape. It was my first attempt at this and I started it many years ago - since then it has gone through several neck changes, pickup configuration changes and even hardware swapping/alterations. Not to mention the countless times I re-wired it as my soldering skills improved and I saw how horrible a job my last attempt was haha

OK so I reached this stage writing out this post and now have no idea how to post pictures, so for now I will leave you with this, the guitar building blog I am documenting the build process on:

https://alexisguitars.wordpress.com/

Hope you enjoy the blog, I'm updating it slowly with the step-by-step guide and there are several more updates to go before it's done. There are a lot more guitar projects going to be uploaded as well, as this has become a hobby/obsession of mine!

In the mean time, I'm going to try and figure out how to attach pictures!

Enjoy the blog

Yo guys,
I have bought the body of a Stratocaster Mighty Mite and was just wondering whether I could put one humbucker and two pickups in it. This is the first time assembling a guitar so sorry if this seems a bit blunt. Would really appreciate any feedback and also any suggestions would be helpful. Here is a picture of the body.
Cheers.

Hi.

I would like to show you my work with some beauty semi hollow body.

Guitar was fund somewhere in garage. Nobody use it about 30 years. Guitar was in really bad condition. I removed old lacquer, some part of destroyed binding. I repainted sunburst and protected it hi gloss lacquer. I removed old frets, grind a fingerboard, got new radius and install new frets. If you have some question just write me a message.

heres a pic of my orange carvin DC700, although i never built the guitar it was custom made for me when i ordered it. the color is a 1 off custom color.
the amp however is the peavey valveking 112 50 watt combo amp, i put inside a 2x12 cab, and got a cool speaker cover made. i also installed 2 12" celestion G12 vintage 30 speakers i got. also applied new tolex on the cab. its set up so it can be used with the built in peavey amp or as a cab for any head i want.
