I have decided to build my own guitar. It’s something I have wanted to do for a long time and I hope to eventually turn it into a FT hobby someday.. So I finally took that first step this week.
I got plans from Chris over at http://www.eguitarplans.com he draws up some really good plans.
The body is going to be a 2 piece Solid Mahogany body.
I started by cutting the two sides to length about 19” for this guitar so that I had a little extra to play with.
I spent probably another 15 mins hand sanding the sides and scraping them. I probably have another 20 mins worth to do before I am happy.
That’s all I have been able to get done so far. I am hoping over the weekend I can get the neck started.
The neck will be made from Hard Maple and glued up from 4 or 5 separate neck profiles to get the total thickness I am looking for.
