    Oh! I just thought of one bit of info I forgot to post. I know how as guitarist, we always talk about how much our guitars weigh. The completed snakehead came in at 5.92 pounds. It's definitely easy on my back.:D

    Bravo!!! I wish I had seen this thread before I started mine... it’s fun to see the differences in building techniques and styles.

    3A93F8A1-DD65-4C5C-989D-C49D189F2A07.jpeg This is where I am so far... the body is made exactly as the original... 4 piece sandwiched pine construction and I’ve made all the metal parts... I’m starting on the necks soon... I have the wood and I’m making a few exactly as they were... and a few fun updates.

    What type of material did you use for you metal parts? Are they plated?

    I’m making the plates in stainless...not that I don’t like plating but it sets my parts different from the original parts. Mild steel is available but plating is up to you.
