That's outstanding, man there's some talented folks out there......
You are too kind! Thanks
My 2 scratch builds. Looking at doing another. I miss it.
I love quilted maple, that is such a beautiful guitar. That is one lucky boy!
thanks guys, with winter coming on i am chomping at the bit to do another one. I have 6 electrics and 4 acoustics. I DONT NEED ANYMORE! Still want to build one
Nah, what's another. They say variety is the spice of life... Just think of all the planning you'll do over the winter!
If they look that good you can do one and auction it off .
My brother plays the bass (kinda) i was hinting for him to finance a bass build. I just want to build it not play it.
Wow. What an incredible guitar.
That's amazing, beautiful work! I've been thinking about building up a PRS style guitar but I'm just planning on using a body/neck from eBay or some other source as a base, more of a parts built. I've been a Fender player for a long time but recently I've been playing a LP with mini humbuckers and I love the sound. I think it's the best sound I've ever had but I miss the fender feel. I'm thinking a PRS with minis will come as close as possible to having the feel of my Fenders and the sound of my LP Deluxe. I have a Strat with minis that I do play too but the alder body and maple neck isn't quite as punchy and warm as the mahogany. If the PRS style doesn't work out then I'm going to try a Warmoth mahogany body/neck with a maple capped body.
I love how you bypassed one of my only gripes of PRS core design. That forearm pinch from the raised edge. Your fortunate son can wail easier with rhythm work. Really like the maple neck layer too.
Did making the tooling and jigs take the most fab time? Nice Job of Love!
This is what I plan to start with. I've found them on eBay for $150-175 which seems like a reasonable price. I know that it'll take a good amount of work to make a real quality instrument from one but it looks like a good base. They are decent looking mahogany with a full thickness maple cap so if you put in the time for a good fit and finish and do a good fret dressing I think they would make a great guitar. I don't want one that's a kit so I can pick quality hardware, the kits I've seen in person usually don't have very good hardware, at least not what I want anyway. I've been a Fender player so long LPs just feel strange but I've really been into the sound of my LP lately so this seems like the best way to get a good compromise between a Fender and Gibson.
