Helloo my fellow UGers, I've been following this forum for a while, made a couple posts, and am fixing to start buying stuff for my build which will be coming up next spring. Winter comes early here in Arkansas so I think I should wait till next spring. Anyways I've been thinking about guitars I could build and came down to 3 options.
They will all have custom inlays, gotoh tuners, 16" radius fretboard and cool paint jobs

OPTION #1!:
7 String Caparison Horus.
Specs:
Mahogany Body
27 Fret Ebony Fret Board with Curly Maple binding (frets get slimer under 17)
OFR 7 String
Dimarzio D-Sonic Bridge
Dimarzo Blaze Single/Custom Single(nuthinbuttrubl8)
1 Volume/3 Way Toggle

OPTION #2!:
Standard Caparison Horus
Specs:
Mahogany Body
27 Fret Bloodwood Board with Curly Maple Binding (slimer frets under 17)
Gotoh Floyd Rose
Dimarzio D-Sonic Bridge
Dimarzio Chopper Neck
1 Volume/3 Way Toggle

OPTION #3!:
7 String RG Prestige
Specs:
Alder Body
24 Fret Ebony/Bloodwood Board with Curly Maple Binding
OFR 7 String
EMG 707
1 Volume/3 way toggle


These guitars will be used for teh br00talz and shredtastic solo's, gonna be played through a 5150 i'll be getting around the same time.
What you guys think?

Number one. Seven strings are epic, but that body shape does add to it.

if its your first buid, I think you should try something easier. making a guitar is not easy. Not even cheap.

EDIT: it looks easier than what i thought. Just dont do weird stuff. I choose number one

Back in April, you posted this:

So it's about summer time, and i'm really looking forward to trying my hand at making a guitar. First one is for me and my other guitar player in my band, then possibly a couple for some friends of mine.

Anyways, back to the good stuff, Based on specs of the Caparison TAT II

So I was think:
Neck Through-5 piece laminate
Alder wings
2 Humbuckers
Schaller or Gotoh Floyd Rose
1 tone, 1 volume, 3 Way toggle
Super Jumbo Frets
Ebony Fretboard (Compound Radius or 16" not sure)
24 Frets
Gotoh Tuners
Painted(sorry guys >.<

The TAT II:



Any suggestions would be well appreciated, need ideas for pickups and such things. Thank you in advance


Then came May, and this thread:

Alright so i'm gonna be ordering wood probably on sunday for my upcoming shredder build. This whole time i've been set on making a neck through guitar but now im having second thoughts thinking it might be too difficult to build.

Is the whole neckthrough thing really worth it?
Is it alot harder to build than bolt on?

I've played both and their equal to be I just dont wanna mess up the neckthough and completely screw up my build.


Then June, and this:
Quote by ViperCustoms
So I'm gonna be building a guitar here soon and I was gonna do a Caparison-ish super strat..but now im like REALLY wanting a radical guitar.

I want something with really good fret access, pointy. You guys know the drill

If anyone has any suggestions or can post pictures of something, i'll love you madly for 3 years.

July came and went,
but no thread about your fantasy of building a guitar.
I hope you were alright.


Okay, now it's August.
We haven't seen any builds whatsoever. Just talk about what you PLAN to do.
You're back on track with yet another fantasy. Lovely. But srsly, man. Don't you think you should stop talking about it and just do it? Post some pics when you actually do something. Even if it isn't great, at least doing it beats talking it to death.

Hey SomeoneYouKnew do you know why I havnt been able to build it yet?
My parents split up so me, a 16 year old, am having to pay for car insurance, bills, i'm working 2 jobs, I had to buy a car, and now am about to start ANOTHER job so I can have some personal money to do stuff like this with before you go and say stuff to someone consider common courtesy and realize that they might have it a little rougher than you, kay? Thanks.

To Everyone else, thanks for your help and straightforward responses.

^If you're tight on money, maybe you should consider doing a cheaper build, those specs look quite fancy.

All three of these options are really cool, though, and I can't wait to see how your first guitar turns out, whether it's a high-end guitar or a cheapo plywood build.

Hey cool it off.
He does have a point.
My parents are split, but I dont have a car, I use the public transport you know, its cheaper, that means no car insurance no gas, so why have a car if its such a hassle for you?
I am finishing my guitar right now

Are you gonna actually build this time, or are we just gonna have another dream thread in September?

I think SYK's point was that you keep making new threads about it and its getting kind of old. I'd like to see this done but dont get on other peoples cases when they simply point out the facts.

Go with the 7 string horus. Ill keep an eye on it... when you finally start...

I voted Number One.
And I know where your coming from; Beleive me Viper, but SYK does have a point.
As long as you actually go through with this one, you have nothing to worry about

Thanks Scowmoo for your encouraging words
I know SYK had a point and I shouldnt have blown up like that but i've been under a lotta stress lately and I guess it was just the first chance I got to let it out.

I am kinda glad that I didnt build this sooner, cause now I have some more knowledge and experience with fretting and such, plus i got some building tools for my birthday and stuff.
Now you guys dont have to worry about another planning thread cause since i've ordered the plan even if I change my mind again next month im gonna stick with the $60 plan :P
