ok

I was looking at building a new guitar from scratch, the list of components I have thought of follows.


Body: Camfa Laurel, Native chinese timber, light resonance, there is no question that I would use this as I have it available in large quantities.

Neck: all maple off ebay

Pick Guard

Wire

Tone pot


Volume Pot


Control cavity cover

bridge

.

I would build it as a tele, a, because I like teles, and b, because it's an easy first build.

I would appreciate it if anyone could add anything I've missed.

Thanks

A pickup. Or two.

Tuners.

Paint.

Soldering skills.

A book on how to do this.

Tools necessary for making a body.

I have the tools, the necks I am looking at come with tuners.

Would I really need a book? I would have thought the internet would provide all the info I would need.

In regards to paint. where exactly would I buy the sorts of paints they use?

The internet will provide a lot of help e.g. www.projectguitar.com

but you can use a book in your workshop, or as bed time reading, or take it to work etc, a book is a permanent physical object you can add notes to, what worked, what didnt, ideas etc, and its always best to compile knowledge from different sources. This book should help,

Make Your Own Electric Guitar by Melvyn Hiscock

BTW if your buying a pre made neck, the tuners on it will probably suck, might wanner invest in some higher ratio or locking tuners.
