So the time has come for me to build a guitar. Or at least try. I've been thinking about what tools I'll need and I'm not exactly too sure.

and since this is pretty much an experiment to see how it'll turn out, what kind of woods should I use? I was thinking something sort of cheap. If it turns out ok I can start working my way up.

everything is in the planning process at the moment. So far the only idea I have is to make a Les Paul Jr, since it only has the one 'bucker and I have no idea how to wire or anything. I'll be using UG to help me out with that.
I got Make Your Own Electric Guitar by Melvin Hiscock, helped me a lot when I had no idea what was going on.
