I know what you're thinking.

a) My name isn't otter!

Well fuck you.

b) I've built a guitar before!

But not from scratch!

So I arrived home from work today (great shift. Friday night + mall = hot ass) to find this laying on my bed.



What might it be?

I opened it up and jizzed in my pants. Then I took pictures.

Of what was in the box.

Parts for a guitar you say?



Curly maple neck blank.


All black hardware.


This one can do F flat


With white pickups.


And a sapele (it's like mahogany's bro from out of town)


The plans?



I'm down for that shiznat.

Anyone else see the irony in smashing a guitar that says "peace and love" ?

looks sweet, but i thought you were going to make that epic, two years of designing guitar
#4
No, that comes after I have tools and woodworking experience.

Expect this build to finshed spring of 2010, due to my astounding lack of tools and money.

WHO GOT YOU ALL THAT ****?!?!

give props broham!



Of course, thanks to Kyle Harper, AKA LP Addict, for sending me all of these parts, and thanks to Phil Timpson, AKA nuthinbuttrubl8, for sending me the pickups!

Why 2010? I have about $80 to my name which isn't enough for a fretboard, router, fretting tools, and paint.

We'll see what happens though.

That's not enough building for me. Good to know though.

Plus, I want the tools the refret. $250 + per refret job, and all it takes is ****loads of time, patience and a few bucks worth or fretwire?

The tools will pay for themselves I hope.

Me too. Andy Samberg is hilarious.
Are you gonna stain the wood? I would stain it just a tad so the grain pops out a bit more. It's not super-nice grain, but I think it would look better with stain.

Oh and EDIT: I feel like an owner of a vintage guitar made by a highly sought-after brand that is no longer in existence 'cause I have an original Otter quote in my sig.

The tools should pay for themselves easily unless you get all speciallized tools from stewmac or something. I got a brass hammer from my grandfather, end snips I already had that I ground the end down on, homemade fret press attachment for drill press (cost $4.50) I'll show you how to make one if you want, straightedge from hardware store, radius block, crowning replacement file that I made a handle for, and a flat piece of mdf or something with sandpaper for leveling. I spent $36 on everything i didn't have so you may need to buy a hammer and end snips but these tools have worked great, you really don't need to spend a lot to get the tools.

How did you get your name changed I've been told it can't be done?

Yeah, I'm thinking I should probably buy one mine got kind of dinged up from stainless steel fretwire. Not much more then regular end snips either.

I got my name changed because it was a technical error.

Most of UG just didn't recognize the characters in my name, causing me to not exist in a lot of places, and generally **** with all sorts of stuff.

If you just want your name changed, too bad, I think...

Sweet! It looks kinda/sorta like a mod I did on a Squier '51:


Visualize it without the PG.


For some reason, I thought you gave away the 51 with the tokai neck. In anycase: picks now, I wanna see this!

Excellent memory! Also, I have another MIJ Tokai neck that I might use on a Strat or Squier '51 mod. It's a flamey Maple neck.

When the Squier 51's were big, I almost got one. If you check out the epiphone strat in my profile, you'll understand why. I'm wondering though, how'd you fill in the routing for the neck pickup and cabling when you jacked the pickguard?

...k, so..

...when I"m sick I usually have messed up dreams

and last night i had a dream that I pm'd LPaddict about that bridge I'm getting him to order for me, and I found out he lives like, down the street from me (in dream-world). so i walk over to his house, and I'm sitting in his kitchen waiting for him to finish eating dinner, and a knock comes on the door. and who could it be but a lively young sprite who recently changed his name to albino rhino. then you come in and say you're here for parts for a build, and we go sit down at the table and wait for LP to finish dinner and get us our parts.

and then I wake up.


...so, yeah.. just thought I'd share that.

should be a pretty sweet build
