A guy at my church loves building guitars and amplifiers (both the woodworking and electronics). He offered to help guide me through the process, and I jumped at the chance.
It’s been a long time coming – I’ve been working on it in between a lot of other projects, but it’s finally finished! I did not make the neck – instead I bought it and veneered veneered flame maple to the headstock.
The top of the guitar is bookmatched figured maple and the body is cedar. The cedar has a very warm tone, which I love. I decided to go with the 2-tone look because I couldn’t bring myself to dye the beautiful cedar.
In these pics, the pickups aren’t all screwed down yet and the 5 way switch isn’t installed. I wanted to play around with pickup height, and I had to replace the 5 way due to an issue with the first one.
