Electric guitar made out of birdseye and bubinga. I like the contrast of a pickguard but did not want plastic on the guitar, so inlayed bubinga in the shape of a pickguard. I bought the neck. On the next one, I plan to make my own neck.

Great looking guitar. I’ve been working on one of my own for a while now. I need to get working on that.

Very Very nice, I used to make guitars about 25 years ago and I’ve missed it every since. I never learned to play ( I was a drummer) but maybe someday. In my town there is one of the best guitar suppliers in the world named Luthiers Mercantile Intertnational, Inc.

That is a beautiful musical instrument. Did you make it for yourself or do you make them for others? Either way, I’m sure it will be enjoyed extensively.

Beautiful guitar. I agree, the wood looks 100 time better than plastic.

Kyle your guitar is beautiful. I agree with the contrasts of the materials. Wonderful idea to rout in the shape of a pickguard in the top and then use rear acess. It keeps the vintage Fender look. I would love to hear more about it. What was the finish process? How is the playability and intonation. Keith.
