Hi guys! It's been over six month since I finished my last build, so I'm excited to get rolling on a new project. This will be one of those builds where I try a whole bunch of new things, and that means that I'll be a total hack when it comes to those techniques. Here's my Photoshop sketch, something that I had worked on for a little while, until I was happy with the dimensions and proportions. If I remember correctly, it started out with a picture of something like a Gretsch white falcon. I shrunk it a bit and gave it a slight offset, for comfort, and to work better with what I'm now using as my standard headstock. The f-holes are essentially Rickenbacker shaped. This will be my second build with Formica. This one will have a pretty zany gloss B&W pattern that I managed to score a sheet of, even though it had been recently discontinued. Here's a slightly more technical view, to easier see what's going on. Some specs: Body wood: Maple veneer, 1/16" thick, mahogany center block and kerfing. And Formica, of course. Neck wood: Quarter sawn maple, ebony fingerboard. Bridge: A Stetsbar! I've been curious about these. The more obvious choice is a Bigsby, but I really wanted something more with a knife-edge fulcrum feel. Admittedly, Stetsbars look like a steampunk mechanical mess, but against the Formica pattern mess I think it will look fine. Tuners: Hipshot open gear locking, chrome. Pickup: I'm on a single-pickup roll lately, so this one will have single humbucker. I'm not 100% set to the neck position, but I already have a couple of single bridge humbucker guitars, so this would be a bit different from those. Scale length: 25" Body thickness: Sides are a tad under 1.5", so not very thick for a hollow body. Plus about .5" each for the top and back contours. Neck mounting: A basic bolt-on. Normally I like to use bizarre neck attachment methods, but there's already so much weird stuff going on with this guitar. And for a semi-hollow guitar, sustain is not so much a priority.
