This is my copy of a Paul Languedoc G2 guitar. I couldn’t afford the $10,000 for the real thing so I thought I would try and make my own.
I’ve been working on it on and off for the last 6 months. I had no idea how to construct a guitar and taught myself by watching hours of Youtube videos and doing about 1000 google searches for information. I love the internet!
The semi-hollowbody is maple and stained red mahogany on the sides and back and an amber shellac on the arched/carved top. I bought the neck pre-made. The tailpiece and bridge are walnut along with a walnut veneer on the headstock. It has about 8 – 10 coats of nitrocellulose lacquer and buffed out to a nice gloss. I’m planning on building another soon where I’ll be making some minor adjustments and building the neck from scratch.
