This is a hard tail electric guitar made for my oldest son….my 2nd guitar, and 2nd completed project of the year. The front is curly maple with green dye, the body is ash painted black. The finish is lacquer. Those interested in details of the build can find more info here . Completion time was about a month…roughly 70 hours. There are still a few adjustments to be made, and I need to fit cover for the jack, but it’s working well so far.

I’ve been following your blog on the guitar. It looks fantastic! Where is the sound clip of it being played?

Yeah what a beautiful guitar

I think that a thrash metal band like SLAYER will like this guitar

The guitar seems be inspired by the BC Rich Guitar isn’t it ?

A very good job I hope the sound was very very hard

Thanks for sharing
