This is a guitar that I have made for my A-Level coursework. The body of the guitar is constructed using 2 layers of wood, the bottom layer is a thick Mahogany tone-wood and the top layer is what I think is an African wood but I don’t know the name of it.
Unfortunately I didn’t have time to make the neck for this guitar but as its the first guitar I’ve ever made, I wasn’t too annoyed at this. The neck on it at the moment is an old Strat neck I took off a behringer strat replica. I’m pretty pleased with how the guitar has turned out, Its even got a nice tone which I was surprised about as the pick-ups only cost me £10 for the pair!
If anyone does happen to know what species the top wood is I’d be grateful if you posted it in the comments. All I know is that its probably African and its very hard.
