My last few builds

Posted on July 15, 2016 at 7:00pm 2 Comments

I thought I would just post a compilation of my last few builds in here just to let anyone who's interested see what I've been up to.

I'm not sure what I have shown you guys so I just took a few photos. I don't know if blog posts in here go to the photos page either so I might post them twice.

Quick rundown..

Three different scale length and semi acoustic to full electric builds. The smallest box is the inside sheath of the mid size guitar. So I got one for free…

Up to my neck in it

Posted on April 8, 2016 at 6:34pm 6 Comments

So I was going to build a guitar for my daughter.. And panicked.. Argh!! I want it to be just perfect. What if it was just.. Well.. Crap.. Useless.. Unplayable? 

See I had never built a neck before, and although I'm a 'jump right in' kind of guy I wasn't even sure what glue to use. So I needed a practice. 

A close friend of mine (let's call her C.F.) has done me one huge life altering favour for the last year and I thought it would be nice to build her a CBG as a way of thanks.…

Guitar 2 day 1

OK now it's going to be more fun :)

This box has been waiting for me to get a little bit of experience, lurking on top of my cupboard. It's aimed as a gift for my daughter so my usual 'oh that will do' attitude will not cut the mustard, so to speak!!

Short trip out the house to get some oak for the neck and fantastic I find some that will do nicely :)…

I like how you think. I have some Brazilian cherry that needs to be incorporated into a future build. It may become a dovetailed box for a license plate 4 string!

Thanks for your encouraging words. I do want to experiment with different lengths and widths and shapes of necks and fretboards to find what I find most comfortable.
