That's a delicious looking flame on that maple.

Wish the damn stuff wasn't do expensive. A decent flamed or quilted maple board on eBay runs like $150 The 5A bookmatched stuff is like $300.

I did. I went to small family-run one and a large-scale industrial one. Neither had

The small one had some nice exotic stuff though :P

this, i bought enough wood to make 3 tapper guitars (uses about twice as much wood as a normal one), and two other guitars about 2 other necks all for about $150.

and it was good stuff to, very nice maple, lacewood, zebrawood, lots of gorgeous walnut, etc.

I'm building it as the guitar to last me a lifetime. it's going too be my gigging guitar and has to be highest quality I can get.

I'm having a neck custom built 'cause I don't have the tools to make it. As long as I'm doing that I'm using exotic woods.

Neck is going to be Wenge with maple and bloodwood laminates, ebony fingerboard, gold colored frets.

Basically my estimates are running like this:

Neck: $350
Pickups: $300 (getting some Rock Monkey Pickups, might be getting a slightly customized wind)
Body & Top Woods: $100-$130 (Honduran Mahogany/ figured maple top)
Bridge: $50-$100
Tuners: $50-75
All Else: ~$40

Comes out to roughly $800 if I scrape the lower estimates. Buying on ebay when I can/when I find a good deal. It'll end up being more 'cause I'll need to pay for shipping on the bridge, tuners, neck, nut, and electronics. Also my estimates don't account for wood stains, clear coat, wood glue, planing costs, and if I need to buy any tools.

I realize the wood budget seems a little steep, but It's $15 per board foot of Mahogany here. It's gonna run me to like $50 for the body wood alone, and I can't find any quilted or flamed maple locally.

I could easily spend more. A piezo bridge would be awesome. A brass or bone nut would be awesome.

Hi

Its natural masked binding so a lack of paint arround the edge shows off the wood underneath. I ordered the build in september and it has just came out of the finish shop. I was told the finishing process is the longest. I don't know if your tech is taking the piss, does he have a build queue before yours ? has he explained why its taken so long ? does he do everything by hand, or run cnc programs ?
