As a volunteer in the woodworking program at a local junior college I get the opportunity to work with a very talented and dedicated instructor who teaches a ukulele building class. All students in the class build a tenor ukulele during the 17 week course. During some our conversations in class the instructor mentioned that someday, when he had the time, he wanted to build an electric guitar and ukulele. Well I had a little extra time this semester so I thought I would just build him a solid body electric as a gift at the end of the semester. I hope it will give him the push to make one of his own. Hope he likes it.

Body – Spalted Birds – Eye Maple with curly Redwood top veneer

Fret board and Bridge – cocoabolo

Beautiful finish (and uke), is it lacquer? What kind of piezo did you use, rod or disk?

Very nice
Would you consider a blog teaching us newbies how to build an electric guitar?
I would pay money.
