Well It’s finally done. Built my first guitar with various amounts of teeth gnashing but it’s looking pretty cool. Plays not too badly and sounds OK. If you want more details you can look on my blog about it.

Nice job! Any sound bites? Maybe a rift or two?

Very beautiful. Wish I could play a few riffs on it.

I like it. And I really like the finish. Don’t usually see a SG style guitar that isn’t painted. My brother has one that is ash with a natural finish. It looks great. Like the humbuckers too.

Fantastic! If it plays as nice as it looks, then I’d say it’s concert ready. SG is my favorite style of solid body – not that I play.. I don’t. But I do like looking at guitars. Rock on! :)
