Wow, that's an awesome guitar! love the walnut!
That's a great-looking guitar. I think you'd do well to take a C-note out of the money you saved making the body and neck yourself, and buy a strap that really complements it. If that wood were on your dashboard, you'd want leather all around it.
Wow, Great job with that... beautiful!
Thank you SO much DrASATele Much appreciation!
I agree! That was just a strap I had so I used it, but leather would be a perfect compliment. Great call and thanks for your message!!!!
Thanks so much, JamGuy541! I appreciate it BIG TIME!!!
Adam, having just finished a walnut guitar myself, I can really appreciate yours! You did a spectacular job on it. It's just exactly right. Gorgeous!
Here are a few more pics of the guitar, for those who'd like to see just how sensational this block of wood is. Hope you'all enjoy them!
I made the neck plate too, out of 14 gauge 304 stainless. Got a little scratched up kicking around the shop during the build, but I'm happy with it
The burl on the sides is truly magnificent! I spent A LOT of time, fine sanding in one direction to really bring it out. Very proud, to say the least
My signature aluminum input jack, with vintage round head, slotted blued screws. I've made a few of these now and I love'em. I thank Paul Bigsby for the inspiration to make every part possible
Everyone's comments and support have been so wonderful, thank you'all so much!!!
Thank you so much, R. Stratenstein!!! I've been a huge fan of yours for such a long time! Means a whole lot coming from you! I'm so appreciative!!!
Beautiful, beautiful work! You are an artist. How much does it weigh?
Will you post a link to your Walnut Guitar Build?!!!
Hey Chicago Matt! Thanks so much for the compliment!!! I'm actually not sure of the weight yet, I need to get a scale. I will say that when I was building it I thought it was going to weigh heaps, but it actually isn't bad at all! If I had to guess, I'd say in the 8-9lbs range. When I get a more accurate weight I'll post it. Thanks!!!
Gorgeous!! I love that neck!
Thanks so much, telechadster! The neck plays like a dream! really appreciate you taking a look and your comment!!!
I love the figuring, binding and craftsmanship!
Is it a one piece body?
These are the pictures you asked for. Sorry they're not that great. But I love the wood grain.
