im building my own dean ml i finaly got the body cut out and routed for two humbuckers and a trem. i need to do more sanding but i was wondering if any one has any experience in building guitars. and if they had any suggestions or tips also i don't know what kind of finish i should do and for the neck im thinking a jackson shaped neck off of war moth or a classic dean shaped neck hope it sounds interesting. pictures soon thanks

Have you routed the neck pocket? If not, then whatever, but if you have and you've done it incorrectly, then you're gonna need to start over, because there's no way a Jackson and Dean neck could fit into the same neck pocket.

I tried it out in store.

Great neck, nice n light, good tuning stability. Overall a good guitar. I didn't but it cause I generally only buy guitars over a grand now.

If he gets the neck off Warmoth then they'll make it however he wants.

Yes, all warmoth neck heels are the same as Fender Strat heels, regardless of headstock shape, unless you specify when ordering.

This sounds pretty cool, and I'd like to see some pictures.

No more red text though .

Well, since your a UG member, the best place for hardware is the user nuthinbuttrubl8, who will get you a 15% discount on stuff from a couple different places.

I know for sure he does www.allparts.com, which actually has all the parts you need for a build. Probably.

PM nuthinbuttrubl8 for more information.

Once you get pics up of the wood it'll be easier for people to tell you what finish, since if it has a nice grain it'd be a shame to cover it up and stuff

So I'm thinking the grain isn't anything super awesome or anything?

Hmm, okay grain you say? I'd think a black/ red burst would be pretty neat, or I've always thought just a plain matte black with chrome hardware is an awesome finish, or white with black hardware... Or, what I think is the sexiest of any guitar finish ever, a deep red stain with gold hardware

Haha, yeah, the edit button could be used, but ah well, you're new, dorklord, you have about two weeks before you'll start catching some serious flak for it

And I get what you mean by wanting a unique guitar... I've spent hours poring over the designs and plans for the (albeit crappy) build I'm working on, getting it how I want it, not modeled after something... So just do whatever you want... Are you thinking a real intense red/black burst like http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3160/2393831492_fc9938572f_o.jpg or one like http://www.drumcityguitarland.com/drumcitygl/stores/1/images/Schecter/Schecter%20Diamond%20Series%20%20Devil%20Custom%20Blood%20Red%20Burst%206-String%20Electric.jpg ?

it will do that but the grain runs up and down see the darker lines those will be black ill pst pictures now that i know how lol iv been testing it on another peice of alder
#40
dude, change the image size, that will kill broadband users. btw, your pickups are cool, did you order custom from Duncan? How much were them?.

btw, as my dear xyz66 noted, the ML in your pic has a flametop, so you wont make it look anything like that. also, your body is flat top, and in the picture, the guitar is kinda carved, so thats another no.
