I am going to make a guitar and im wondering if you think i can make it playable?
I was looking around ebay on some guitars and then i found the luthiers section an i realized that i probably had the resourses to make my own design...
My dad and me have built alot like a house, furniture and stuff like that so I should be abel to get most of the tools...
Im thinking of making a fenderlike guitar (with bolt on and pickgard ect.) but with different shape... figured it would be the easy building way?

so im thinking of making an all maple guitar with rosewood fretboard...
with a bigass pickgard and maybye a different setup... HB S Lipstick.

Im most afraid of making the neck and screwing that up...
i want to know if it is that hard and if it is possible to make a playable guitar on the first try??... I know it wont be a stratocaster or gibson.. and it will probably not compare to my other guitars...

Edit1: Do you know where to get rosewood ??? it would be realy good to get it... hard to find??? just maybye enough to 3-4 guitar necks shiping international (from finland)

Edit2: have found a place where i can probably get the wood from...

the pics are just some sketches on some ideas please coment and come with ideas...






i will probably make some almostfinal shapes tomorrow when there is some light outside but we will see...

Well im doing a telecaster for my GCSEs in school, its going excellent so far, no slip ups, i have had a lot of help though. The abosulute key thing is you get all your measurements all spot on, all your angles relating to the bridge and heel of the neck and make sure the scale length is correct. As you say you have help from your dad so it should be alot easier. I suggest you do alot of research into building before you attempt it.

Sorry if that seemed random/weird. It was just my way of showing that the kind of shape you're going for works.


How's the top rear corner going to work out? Will it get in the way of your arm?
