I was thinking, since we can get any type or wood we want, that i would make a guitar in woodshop at school. I was thinking of making an explorer. How hard would it be to make the guitar with a set neck, and how hard is it to make the neck itself? I have made stuff before such as a wagon and built our deck, but i have no idea how hard it would be. Do you think i could get a premade neck from somewhere, and just set it? I'll take any advice you guys are willing to give. Thanks a ton
How much time do you have? Remember if you paint your guitar, it needs time to cure, etc. When I built one of my guitars i spent a good 4 months building it the way I wanted it. From scratch, outsourcing parts, winding pickups, etc.
its a very precise job, nothing like a deck or a wagon, even though those kick ass too. id reccomend that you get a fretboard at least from warmoth or something, itd be hard to get the frets perfectly on there
thanks guys, could you tell me whats involved in setting a neck?
buy a book, you cant really cover it in a forum post!
