Wow, dude. Those are sweet. Humor me for a minute, if you will. I’d like to build both an acoustic and an electric one day and I’m wondering what the hardware would cost me. Where would I go about obtaining pickups, etc.? If I’m building (translated: ruining a lot of wood) a guitar, I’d be looking for the very best equipment I could possibly find. If you could steer me in the right direction, I’d really appreciate it.

^Is that right, Tim? Makes sense! I know the owner plays. I’m looking for some really high-end components; you know, the ones that’ll impress a Mesa Boogie type rocker dude.

hi bertha thanks for your interest,ok ready?this is an excellent start for your pickups they are brill,i have a set in the spalted beech guitar,here is a link well i hope.http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/guitarfetish_parts/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_from=&_ipg=25

they sell every thing except the tone wood,well i can`t remember if they do,but search around on ebay for some nice tone wood i wouldn`t just go to a timber yard because it has to be 1/4 sawn and around 10% moisture free.the arms you can get from ebay as well look out for the one that got broken in transit,you can get arms and all fittings with it and of course they are brand new.try to stay clear of older ones because the neck may be bowed or twisted and the truss rod may be broken.my experience of getting cheap pots they are totally a waste of time crackle crackle pop pop alpha is a moderate ones to get,im just starting a classical guitar concert style im making my own arm this time what a challenge. hope this helps best of luck but watch out you`ll be hooked lol
ps i almost forgot this is the back and sides i have just got smashing.http://stores.ebay.co.uk/Prime-Timbers?_trksid=p4340.l2563

Thanks Blue! That’s helpful. Yeah, I didn’t want to waste money on cheap pots. I don’t mind spending a good bit of money for quality parts on a build like this. Thanks again, Al.
