Hey everyone, I'm just beginning a guitar-building project. I have a general idea of what exactly I want to end up with.

SPECS
Construction: Set neck [or neck-thru, not sure yet]
Body: Cocobolo
Neck: Cocobolo
Scale: 25.5"
Fingerboard: Ebony [?]
Frets: 24 XL
Inlays: none
Binding: none
Pickups: EMG Active 81-TW/89
Electronics: Vol [tap] / Vol [tap] / Tone / 3-way switch
Bridge: Original Floyd Rose Tremolo
Tuners: Grover
Hardware: Black Matte [or Black chrome]


Right now I'm trying to find out how thin I can make the guitar so that it's as thin as it can be while still being able to have an OFR in it. Can anybody tell me that?

I think the thinnest you could go would be 1 3/4", as they were meant to fit on a strat - which is 1 3/4" thick.

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.

might want to stick with set neck, I've had a lot of trouble with building neck-thrus before...

you know why rabbits are smarter than cows?

fucking cows start moo-ing around for no reason, but rabbits keep their mouth shut until they actually have something to say.

god I hate cows.
