My first guitar build – I can see why people get hooked building these. Was meant as a blog series…but I’m terribly about documenting my process – get too absorbed in the work I guess.
Solid cherry body finished with Minwax Antique Oil – LOTS of coats to build to the finish I wanted.
After the first flood coat soaked in I wet sanded with the oil and 220 wet/dry paper to fill the grain and smooth the finish.
The neck was purchased from GuitarPartsUSA – for my first build I wasn’t quite ready to tackle neck construction. I cut the headstock using a patter from another guitar builder’s forum.
Already looking forward to my next one – a thinline version of the same guitar – in mahogany.
Thanks for looking!
