I've been browsing fj since the yellow era and i have never left a ******* comment. I'm a big guitar enthusiast and I also have great appreciation towards people who play the instrument, and even more towards people who craft their own music box. What you have done so far looks amazing, and I think that it will look even more miraculous when it is finished. I wish that you keep doing what you're doing, and that maybe someday we will meet and I will purchase one from you. Keep it up sir, you deserve to be proud of your work. I wish you the very best.

Always wanted to make my own guitar...but where to start?!
User avatar #11 to #7 - thewebspinner (07/21/2013) [-]
Start by drawing some designs, look up some tutorials online. Read up on different woods and tones and try different guitars in a shop to see what you like (maple's a really good starting point) If you're worried about messing up the neck you can buy prebuilt ones with large blank heads so you can shape it how you want. Get some decent tools or find a workshop that you can use. Take as much time as you want, don't rush it or you'll **** it up.

Protips: Make sure you leave your wood for 2 weeks in the environment your building in as the wood will bend out of shape when changed from hot/cold/humid/dry areas.

When using exotic woods (especially zebra wood) make sure you cover your entire face and body the sawdust can give you the worst rash in the world and can leave you scarred pretty badly)

Learn how to scale a neck (fret positions and tail and nut heights) even if you don't build the neck yourself, it will help you design your build or choose what size and scale neck you want.

Don't try and paint it unless you have decent experience and the right tools. varnish is best for your first go (you can find some awesome one's that will bring out the patterns in the wood) and try using stains before varnishing to give different hues. experiment on off cuts before your guitar.

Get some decent hardware (pickups, tailpiece, pegs...) they're easier to install and make a huge difference (you can remove them and reuse them whenever you want)

Try making a fullsize cutout in card board it will help you to make a template and also see if you are happy with the shape.

hey dude looks awesome. what woods are you using? Are you sure panelling them like that won't **** up the tone? Lovely design except for the flat base (personal taste of course) Keep up the good work and make sure you get the tailpiece at the right height or the frets will all be out of place on the neck!

Lookin' good man. Just make sure you have the neck pocket ******* BANG ON. That has caused me heaps of trouble with the ones I have made.

Atleast get rid of the Fender style head.. It would look better with a more beefy one that goes with the body, that's my take on this anyway.
