not a fan of the build at all, but looking at all the progress pics, you deserve a pat on the back. I ordered a warmoth body/neck because I'm too much of a coward to do what you're doing. Excellent work. Hope the end result is all that you've hoped of.

If I could just understand the meaning of this...
its a little guy clapping your work

and also, your build looks sweet. make some maple knobs to contrast the mahogany. unless youre painting over it. but maple knobs and pickguard would look epic

Did you do all the radiusing on this thing by hand? Or did you use a router?


Raduis of fretboard? Surely used a radius block.

LOL

I was thinking about making wooden knobs but for now I go with the regular strat knobs. Maybe in the future

And no pickguard!!

I used a router but didnt really like the results (it was a small bit and the curves were very shallow). So i took a file and a sandpaper... started working on it and got it done pretty easily.
You can see the outline of the body where it's curved, because i sanded the top-flat part again and that broke the curves a ltl. I got to fix that.

A woman's perspective is great, you get to stare down at least one top without anyone caring.

Ha that one picture, of the black strat, scared me. I was like OH NO HE DIDNT COVER THAT BODY IN BLACK. Happily relieved when I realized that was a different guitar!

I'm scared to wind pickups lol but this is coming along great! It makes me want to start building something... I'm thinking a neck through V...
Oh, is the neck and fretboard one piece of wood?

Ducks and guitars or fish and guitars. I lead a simple existence

I take it that tinfoil rig counts the number of winds? Interesting idea.
I play Lacrosse, you should too
