Walnut SG Build

Hi folks, thought I'd show off the latest. My mate from uni happened to be sitting on a stockpile of walnut and ash, so I agreed to build him an SG (modelled from my own cheap-and-nasty epi special) in exchange for some timber. Won't be doing that again.

Anyway, here she is:





I'm moving up to the North Island soon for work so unfortunately it'll be a while before the next build. On the plus side, I get to spend all my earnings on new tools, so I guess it's not all bad

Well, technically it could be done, but only in the same way that you could change a cat into a hamburger. It's an unpleasant process, and nobody is happy with the result.

How does it sound? And what do I have to do for one?

Enough to get a couple of builds out of. The main draw is the figure of the walnut though, it polishes up pretty nicely. A real prick to machine though, I went through a couple of router bits getting it to shape.

It sounds pretty reasonable. It's only got GFS pups in it, so it perhaps isn't up to it's full potential, but as an entry-level guitar (as per the order) it sounds pretty damn good.

That looks awesome. I used a walnut body on my first build, but because it was my first build and I didn't know better, I stained it too much and partially hid the beautiful grain. It still looks prettynice though

It's very nice Boysie! Is it reasonably heavy?
