Nice guitars man, and I like the all in one thread idea. I can't wait until I have enough money to start my build. This only makes me want to more.

Recently, I saw a Tele that had been made with a rosewood body. I can't remember where, really... But it looked great, and I can't help but think it would have a bright and unique sound for a Telecaster. I just thought I'd bring that up before you used up all of those wenge necks. It sounds like a great combination for aesthetics and tone, or at least worth the gamble. Though, I can only imagine that a slab of rosewood would be pricey...



Hell, maybe I'd buy it...

I've got a 5-piece wenge and maple neck sitting in my closet waiting until I find a chance to take my body woods to someone who owns a planer.

The neck is fantastic. Wenge is beautiful and the unfinished feeling is incredible. can't wait to hear it wonce the whole thing is assembled.

probably wood of some sort.. flamed maple? i unno.

this isn;t a real planned build.. jsut like.. one of those things that would be fun. but.. i have so many other builds that take priority in september.


i guess this is a good place to update what im doing with life.


In September i am going to be learning under a guy named Garren, of loucin guitars.

hes currently building guitars for Phil X, zakk wylde, and.... Dave grohl. so.

thats flippin awesome.

anyways, im going to be building a sweet acoustic and documenting the crap out of my experience there.

also in september im building an electric for a guy from "Said The Whale" theya re one of my favourite bands so im SUPER stoked to be able to do this.


also this year (from september to Jan-ish) you can probbably expect:

new legocaster neck,
neck/guitar builds for my first few customers as a token of appreciation for starting me out.
fanned fret heeless strat
p90 empress
bunch of other random builds. i got TONNES of wood kicking around. ltos of alder, maple, flamed maple.. that sort of dealie.

well. i got an order for a cajon from the girls section of camp here.. i guess they were mad they never got to use mine but the youngest kids did.

so anyways. they ordered one.. and i built it in 2 days. woot.





and then within the past 24 hours, i got orders for 3 more of them.. so. thats pretty sweet.

il be making a bunch of them it seems during the next 2 weeks.. going to devise some jigs to make gluing them easier.. may get a biscuit joiner or something.

they are pretty cheap right now. 60/piece

basically they are all same size/ etc. then you just choose a color. they are a BIG hit around here, and even people that often run live gigs+recordings, and people that have recording studios etc, have said how awesome mine sound when mic'ed up.
