Is this modeled after the Steve Vai guitars? Those are the only ones I’ve ever seen with a “handle” in the body. That’s a beautiful guitar. Oh, and one heck of a monster Planer too!

Funny you should ask oldskoolmodder. I am learning to build guitars from Joe Dispagni. Joe is a lifelong friend of Steve Vai. Joe cut the first handle in guitar for Steve and built the first “JEM”. Joe and I are building guitars by hand for a host of rock stars. I have an industrial wood shop and A large stock of primavera, sapale,oak,brazillan cherry and several mahoganys.

Wow that’s beautiful it is good you waited your sons appreciation for you is much more now and he will appreciate the guitar a lot more. I have learned from reading that the wood used to make guitars was based more on availability than anything else contrary to common believe. You will get different results with different woods but hard dens wood sounds brite and softer wood sounds warm. Mixed wood sounds full.
