Always loved these .. back in the day I used to be in a pop-goth band with a guitarist who used to rock a 12 string 'un .. this'll be the hardest thing i've ever made and i reckon i'll need a load of help.
I have a lefty Hohner st57 neck courtesy of ebay, which i reckon will suit the shape beautifully; and the ever-helpful coffin-dodger next door has a lovely hunk of sycamore, a bandsaw, router, etc .. and more importantly, a vague idea what he's up to with the wood. He's also part of a wood-working group who meet in a local tech. college if it all gets a little complex for us simple folk.
It'll be his first guitar build too.
I've plundered the interweb and found a vector drawing
First dumb questions centre around the neck pocket (or lack of it on the diagram), and calculating the position of the bridge. I want to use a tele humbucker cut bridge, with a tappable 'bucker, in a kind of ovation/esquire design.
Help please !!!
