My first guitar build.

I've recently (past maybe year) wanted to build a guitar. I wanted a punky single coil short scale fender-ish guitar to offset my Ibanez and Kramer. I decided I would make a body the shape somewhere between Jag and Mustang (not a Jagstang!) I just received an opportunity to do the guitar body as a school project using my school's CNC. I shall finish when I have funds to do so.

Specs:
24" scale
Alder Body
Two reverse slant single PUs

Subject to change based on availability, funds and my ever changing tastes.

I am not making the neck. If anyone knows a place better than Warmoth to get a neck please share. Any recommendations on hi output singlecoils (strat sized) would be appreciated. i may need to call upon you to help me make a wiring diagram.

Looking forward to this! The build I'm working on is actually kinda based off a Jag/Mustang... I think they're both really underrated designs... Be sure to give us plenty of pics!

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

Actually, im currently building a mustang.

No I'm not Jesus. I would aspire to be though. I think under circumstances he would let you pay less if you needed to.

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.
Probably picked "for teh lulz"

ya. i was upset.

sidenote. that price is too good to pass up. if i cant find a shorty by the time im putting it together il need to get that. even though i would like scale length variety.

prog report. i should have a scale drawing by this weekend and be ready to start programming tool paths.

if anyone wants a body after i post pics i might be able to sell for wood cost and slight profit to finance my build.

I cut tomorrow. Sorry no pix, i dont have a camera but ill try to hook some up

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

i dont think im up to the task of making a neck yet. I also don't know where to begin. I might in the summer but right now the plan is to just by a warmoth.
