    Badass dude. Say, was there a reason you didn't round off all the sharp edges and corners on your single string bridges, or ...?

      I built this guitar with my Dad. The stripes are the end grain of alternating layers of plywood. We ripped sheets of oak plywood into strips, then we stacked and glued the strips to make blanks that we cut the neck and body out of. It was our first guitar build, just a fun experiment, so we went cheap with the wood. I took these pics after we tested it and were disassembling to apply a seal.

      Looks awesome! How does it sound?

        Thanks dude ,They will be rounded and smoothed a bit more and will get powder-coated black when I do the finishing on the rest of the guitar

              I finished this off over the weekend. Musikraft Charvel style body and neck.



              Unfortunately the stuff I used for the clear is absolute crap! I'm going to need to redo it at some point, but I just don't have the money or time to do it now. Figure I may as well play it.

              Alder body with flame maple top, one piece maple neck with 10-16" compound radius fretboard. Stainless steel frets. KGC brass block and neck plate. Customised Custom Shop IM1 and Little '59. I think I'll change out the 59 though. It's not quite the sound I'm after for a neck pickup. 3 way 4PDT with Petrucci wiring. Sounds and plays great.

                    That's pretty sweet how you bursted the neck, I think that's the first time I've ever seen that done...
                    Squier Bullet Special or a Squier Partscaster into a ZOOM G1Next into either a Fender Frontman 25R or a Vox Pathfinder 15R.

                      I have this thing on my, ahem.. bench. All GFS parts except the rosewood style Squier neck....stop your drooling, haha, it's a lightweight paulownia body with a light flame maple top, roller bridge and trem and it's getting routed for a chrome cover, alnico II neck humbucker, vintage style bridge pickup and chrome tele style knobs.

                              I am not big on cowboy motifs but that guitar is cool as hell. Right down to the mini hum and the shotgun shell knobs. That really works. Have you considered do some kind of Esquire wiring on that beast? You have a lot of options with the mini hum.

                                Thanks all..........


                                Wiring will be 50s style like a Les paul/SG Jr........tried everything else, single volume and tone, wired up old school 50s style, owns it for me.
