My buddy that I'm building it for is an awesome website/ graphic designer and we are basically trading. He gets the guitar, I get the practice as well as another build under my belt plus my own website to show off my stuff and begin taking custom orders in the future.

I've been busy but I got a few more things done

rough cut neck and headstock


Ripped a thin piece of swamp ash from the body scraps for a headstock veneer

Wow, awesome and original idea and it looks really neat. If you pull it off all the way I think it'll look marvellous, excited to see it.

Just now noticing how the grain in the ash is going in opposite directions. Excellent.

Yeah still doing the chain. I have about half of the cavities cut for it and I plan on finishing that up today so pics should follow soon.

Stewmacs pretty expensive on basically everything so I try and stay away from them if I can. Its like $115 for a 2 piece swamp ash blank from them, where as you can get the same thing from BestGuitarParts for $60 or $105 for a one piece blank. Definitely shop around before going with stewmac.





Chain is being epoxied in and now I have to wait the 24 hours for its to cure


Its a little messy but should clean up nice once dry

Niiiice. I'm also really digging the shape of that other guitar body lying around in many of the pics, nice curves. I'll soon start with my first own build, and I was thinking a very similar design to that one.

After the epoxy cured for 24 hours I ran it through the drum sander a few times and got every thing all cleaned up




stencil of the carves


roughed them in, them still need some more attention
