GUITAR BUILD - Prologue

Views: 217
Comments: 6
hey UG a few of you know i plan on building a guitar over the coming months :) mainly from seeing fellow UGer ormsby woring his magic and me foolishly thinking 'how hard can it be?'

got a fair bit time off coming up, plenty of experience with drilling, soldering, sanding and sawing etc.

plan is a rickenbacker 330 copy, but solid body, possibly in mahogany. i'm getting a yamaha pacifica neck from the dandy free thread in gear ads so i dont have to worry about arguably the hardest bit. alls i need to do is get a body blank put some holes and electronics in, paint it and slap the neck on....easy :)

going to be a HB/P-90 set most likely with some bizarre obscure wiring :rolleyes: white front, black back and sides, with black hardware :liplick: string through too.

theres only one tool i have no experience with, the all important router, for cavities and such. but i have one of those now and im practising on scrap wood. and i plan to do a mockup like, join the neck on fit the bridge and pups to make sure i can get everything to line up. that'll prolly be happening in a week or two when i'm done with exams.

i have a full size body diagram done, and it looks good, but i'm tweaking it a fair bit.

so theres the plans. stay tuned!!!

That sounds like a ton of fun!
Let me know how it works out for you... I am looking into a workshop myself and would appreciate hearing how it goes. Good luck!
