Build you own?
Does anyone here build thier own guitar? I just tried my first. I have almost
no woodworking skills, but I got one together, oversanded in a few places, and
used a stain.
I upgraded with parts from GuitarFetish. I sounds great once I figured out how
to set action and pickup heigth. I built a Custum Les Real. Smile
The next one will be much better for sure.

Built a few electrics. The first one in the 80's turned out the best and its
still a solid player and it was an original design completely from scratch.
These days there are so many nice kits.

I just failed putting a pantry shelf up. I have thought about it but maybe
it's not for me.

Oh, man. Sorry to hear that. I have basick carpentry skills. I can build a deck
and so forth. It's not top nothch, but it's good enough for me.

It was the sanding and getting colors right for staining and such. I didn't
realize how thin the maple skins are on these guitars.

I might have a go, but if I'm building one, then I want to do it from
scratch. Build the neck, fret board, body, etc. I'm obviously going to need
special tools to drill a hole for the truss rod, probably a router to cut
into the body, and various planes to get the contours right. I'm a fan on
the strat shape so that's what I'd likely build. I've seen some templates
you can buy on the net. Maybe...one day.
