Butterflies

Ok everyone, Ive had this build going for awhile and was keeping it under wraps but since I'm working on this my other builds are not being updated so I decided to post this one as well so you can see I'm not totally slacking on the guitar building.

This is a Tele based semi-hollow with butterfly sound holes. I'm using a mahogany body with a quilted maple top that will be dyed purple with a natural maple faux binding. I'm trying out GFS's lipstick single and double pup just because I like the looks. I have multiple purple heart fret boar blanks but I think it might be too much so as of now I'm planing to do a natural maple fretboard with purple heart binding.

The design






The lipstick tube humbucker that I hope sounds halfway decent


Mahogany body


After being planed nice and flat


Sound holes very roughly cut

Kinda girly for my tastes, but nice work and that's what counts.

Also, sexy top.

I decided to rout out a line that follows the border of the body. I'm going to fill it with white inlace and it will serve as a border between the purple and natural faux binding.







I had a few inconsistencies with the line around the top horn area but hopefully it wont stand out too much and I'm please with the rest of the cut.

Ok so now I'm tackling the fret boards and necks for this and my other builds. I just finally got my radiusing jig dialed in today which was holding up a lot of stuff so expect progress on all builds shortly. Take care guys!

Manliest build since the Hello kitty guitar. You should play some death metal on it,
last line removed by mod.

I like the hook on the pick guard design, that flourish is starting to seem like your trademark almost. Looking great!

Girl or not, I would own and play something like that. Nothing wrong with an element of 'nature' in a guitar's design, since it is made of wood, etc. I was going to have a humingbird inlay done on the guitar I'm having built and my gf gave me a weird look. I guess some of us artistic types have a feminine side, lol.

Beautiful. Your guitars really stand out from the crowd; you really are a true artist.

Finally received the pro tube in the mail so was able to route the cavity and position the bridge.




Progress on the neck should follow shortly.

That's interesting; a single coil in the bridge and humbucker in the neck?

Super common, man.

I enjoy the idea of this build a lot. My girlfriend has some flowers around her house (forgot what they're called) that fade form orange on the outside to a vibrant purple inside, and it makes me really wanna use that scheme on a guitar like this. Keep up the great work!
