I managed to grab some pictures of the routed bodies.

Bottom half routed:


Top and tailed:


Top half finished:


There are more pics on the Flickr set thingy-ma-bobby.


Tomorrow, I plan on routing the violin type 'scrolls'. This shouldn't be too hard, but it might take a while.

As soon as thats done, I'm routing a cavity on the back, so there is access to the electrics etc. Then the two half's get glued, shaped and the guitar is generally put together. I'm really surprised and happy with how fast it's coming along!

Pictures of the freshly routed violin-esque scrolls! Surprisingly, it wasn't that hard to do. Or at least nowhere near as hard as i thought it would be.









Next step, routing the cavity and somehow salvaging a 1/4" connector.

She's pretty much finished now. The bridge is glued. The nut is being glued and the strings are on their way. All i need now is a jack and a connector to make her fully electric.

I'll grab some pics for those who are interested in a bit.

As promised, the pictures. Would be cool to hear all your thoughts and stuff.















I will probably string it tomorrow, if i can get them strings. I might wait a bit until the electrics though.

Well it will be a junk guitar in the end. I mean you called it that way,


butttt if you do change your mind, and want to spend some money, Id say go with metal strings and add a pickup.

at first i thought this would just fail. But the guitar actually looks pretty good.

You will HAVE to use nylon or low tension strings seeing as though the neck probably doesn't have a truss rod.

Hey cheers guys for all the comments!

Couldn't find any nylon strings, so i'll just have to wait until they fall out of the sky or something (or maybe i will just have to buy them and not tell you lot, so as far as you're all concerned i got them for free. Of course i couldn't tell you any of this)

AND, later on this year, i will be making a 'proper' one of these - but spending more time and money on it. I'll use nicer woods, better necks, cooler electronics - but probably still the same shape as i really really dig it.

Anyway, yeah thanks again for all your nice comments!

WTF is up with the body shape? It looks like a ES335 got squished down or compressed or something. Its still cool though.
